There are interactive graphs of the leverage and the cost of capital. There are fields of market data, valuation and debt characteristics and there are two graphs, one of them is represented in three different models. Students can move a point along the graph and financial

parameters which value is represented by the point, will start to change.

There is a Yield Curve Graph in linear form along with the correlated S&P 500 index linear graph. Students can change the form of the graph spacing and regulate the length of the trail.

This is an interactive simulation of Basic DCF Stock Valuation in the form of the table with a rows of various parameters and columns of years. Students can change any parameter and observe how all the other parameters will change accordingly to their actions.

This is a bond calculator that helps to calculate the yield to maturity and value of investment. Students can change the various parameters, including the coupon frequency.

## Physics Simulations

This series of interactives allows students to understand various laws of physics by inputting variable data and observing the results.

This is an interactive physics model of friction forces: a box is standing on a cargo truck platform which changes the angle of tilt, and the box starts to move. Students can change the mass of the crate, coefficients of static and kinetic friction and also select free-body diagram

instead of the physical picture to observe how the forces work.

This is an interactive physics model of speed and direction. A woman is standing on a tower above the swimming pool and dropping a ball straight down. A dolphin should jump and catch that ball. Students can customize the angle of the jump, the initial speed, the initial height

of the tower, and also can turn on the slow-motion and/or turn off the gravity to see the differences.

This is an interactive physics model of overtaking the other car. Students can customize the mass of the car, the amount of power delivered to the wheels, the initial speed of the car and time limit which is also can be turned off.

This is an interactive physics model of golf game with a tree as an obstacle. Students can customize the initial ball speed, the initial angle of direction, the hole position, the green elevation, the tree position and height.

## Basic Geometry Simulations

.

This is an interactive simulation of the 3D-rotation of the two axes perpendicular to each other in a liquid medium. Students can customize the speed and the angle of the rotation.

This is an interactive simulation of three 3D-geometrical shapes: the sphere, the vertical half-plane and the right-circular cone. Students can change the parameter that alters the radius of each figure.

This is an interactive simulation of the variability of the dots within the same structural dimension. Students can vary the number n of the dots in the model and observe the change of both the physical model and the architectural realization, which are represented differently.

## Science Simulations

This is an example of one of a series of simulations created for the NSTA for high school students. Competentum created the art, in addition to developing the interactivity.

This is an interactive simulation of the world's biomes. The world is represented by the 3D model of the globe with the specific zones marked with the colours corresponding to the various types of the biomes. Students can select any biome from the list, learn more about it and

understand, where this kind of biome is situated on the globe.

This is an interactive simulation about chromosomes and inheritance. Students read the theory and then interact with modelled chromosomes, first with human chromosomes and then with fictional dragon chromosomes, to learn by exercise how the inheritance of the traits

works.

This is an interactive simulation created for the NSTA for high school students. Students read the theory and enter the numbers to predict the consequences of reintroducing the wolves in the habitat, both for wolf population and for Elks population. Then the students observe the

graph about the actual effect of the reintroducing of wolves and compare it to a user's prediction.

This is a simulation of the effect of the two types of natural cataclysms - volcanic eruption and forest fire - on ecosystem. Students read the theory and by selecting the right consequence of answers, learn how to regenerate the ecosystem after cataclysm step by step.
