PhET Progress Report

Sam Reid

October 25, 2007


An online version of this report is available here.

Here’s a pie chart representation of the time distribution.



·         Latest version

·         Added multiple modules for Torque

1.      Removed performance optimization (not set to work with multiple modules yet)

·         Added handle graphic

·         Remove data when buffer is full (should delay crashing a long time)

1.      Still not removing data from the chart, so crashing can still occur if you let this run long enough



·         Met with Mike to discuss translations for Flash sims


Deferred Initialization

·         Investigated support for faster startup times by building tabs later

·         Best solution here would take some nontrivial time decoupling tabs from phet application usage



·         Deployed CCK and Wave Interference to main site



·         IntelliJ – upgraded to 7.0.1, acquired another year-long open source license

·         Help – phet help email

·         Glaciers – scanned design docs



·         Rotation/Torque

·         Localization Interface for PhET Simulations

·         CCK

·         Collaborate with John on States-Of-Matter

·         Licensing issues/Meet with Kate Tallman
