Welcome to Ceres Software Corporation, a science resource center. We create practical and effective physics problem-solving software, educational worksheets, and interactive activities for high school science and computer science teachers, with the main goal of engaging and stimulating their students. At the present time we have comprehensive sets of activities in the following areas: anatomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth and space science, physical science, physics, and zoology. To evaluate how beneficial are the activities for your teaching program, you can view and try them online, in addition to download free of charge a sample of five or more complete activities in pdf and interactive html formats in each subject. For high school physics students, we created seven outstanding interactive modules for Windows and Mac computers, to help them become more efficient problem solvers in kinematics, dynamics, optics, and AP Physics 1 and 2. Finally, for students participating in the science fair, we put together two unique products that teach students how to assemble balsa wood bridges and educational electric motors.
In most cases, every chapter incorporated in the science worksheets sets was divided in several sections, and each section consists of five different activities that have the same set of vocabulary and science concepts. The activities are: standard crosswords, crosswords with word banks, interactive crosswords in
html format, matching activities, and word search worksheets.
These five activities can be used wisely by teachers in several different ways to reinforce each group of concepts being learned. The following is a brief description of the different educational materials available
(please click the links shown if you wish to obtain more specific information about any item):
- Seven physics modules containing 1,810 original and carefully designed problems: Module 26 (AP Physics 1 and 2), Module 25 (10 Class Projects for AP Physics 1), Module 20 (Geometrical Optics), Modules 4 and 5 (Beginning and Advanced Dynamics), and Modules 2 and 3 (Beginning and Advanced Kinematics). These modules are 100% interactive and are designed for Windows. Each module includes a tutorial, five different test generators, the step-by-step solution of every problem, and hundreds of multiple choice practice exercises. Another version of these modules can be used in PC and Mac computers, and in many digital televisions with USB ports. They contain dozens of high quality videos in AVI movie format. Each module is delivered in a 16 GB USB jump drive.
Physics Problem Solving
- Balsa Wood Bridges: This product teaches students how to design and assemble their own balsa wood bridges. It incorporates 1,300 high-quality digital pictures of real balsa wood bridges, videos in AVI movie format, and more than 300 drawings of different bridge trusses and models. It also includes two comprehensive picture-oriented tutorials which explain the step-by-step planning and construction of a bridge. A 16 GB USB jump drive has all the files in MP4 video and pdf formats.
Balsa Wood Bridges
- Educational Electric Motors: This unique product teaches students how to build four types of educational electric motors, by using simple and inexpensive items such as toothpicks, straws, corks, paperclips, needles, cardboard, thin electric wire, and magnets. This product incorporates close to 1,000 digital pictures and dozens of drawings, videos in AVI movie format, and outstanding real-life animations. The motors may be assembled as classroom and science fair projects. A 16 GB USB jump drive incorporates all the files in MP4 video and pdf formats.
