This manual is the product of a long-term project designed to investigate the different teaching strategies that science teachers use with simulations in the classroom. The site contains a collection of approximately 40 strategies for using simulations in science classes.

The manual is set up in two sections shown in the lists below. The first section is composed of nine core strategies and contains some video examples. We chose to highlight these strategies because they show different ways simulations can be used to enhance science lessons and support student learning. Many of these strategies have not been written about before.
