Two New Challenges

I am playing with two new open source software programs that I see so many potential learning opportunities with my students. The first one is Scratch, which is an object-oriented computer programming software that allows students to explore scripting visually. It has many project potential with Algebra. I hope to collaborate with our Algebra teacher using this program. The other program that has caught my attention is Phun, which is an open source program that teaches physics using drawing tools. Once you create your drawing, you activate gravity to make your objects obey the laws of physics. It is a truly innovative software that I plan on using in my Engineering class this year.
