WWC Summary of Evidence for this Intervention


ThinkerTools is a computer-based program that aims to develop students’ understanding of physics and scientific modeling. The program is composed of two curricula for middle school students, ThinkerTools Inquiry and Model-Enhanced ThinkerTools. ThinkerTools Inquiry allows students to explore the physics of motion and then asks them to apply that knowledge to solve real-world problems. In the Model-Enhanced ThinkerTools curriculum, students create computer models that express their own theories of force and motion.

Reviewed Research
