Interactive Physics, the award-winning educational software from Design Simulation Technologies, makes it easy to observe, discover, and explore the physical world through exciting simulation. This easy-to-use program will support the most basic to complex topics in STEM education.
Interactive Physics is a powerful tool for discovery learning and helps students visualize and learn abstract concepts. It develops inquiry skills and physics knowledge by allowing the user to vary nearly any physical parameter (e.g., gravity, force, speed, spring constants) and to measure its effect on nearly any measurable quantity (e.g., position, energy, decibel level).

Interactive Physics allows you to model, simulate, and explore a wide variety of physical phenomena, and create nearly any experiment imaginable. If you can use a mouse, you can use Interactive Physics.
Difference between Interactive Physics(IP) and Working Model
Interactive Physics was created for physics and Working Model was developed for engineering.
As a result, the user manual, tutorial, and examples for IP are appropriate for physics instruction whereas the user manual, tutorial, and examples for Working Model are directed towards engineering professionals, engineering educators, and students.
To best enhance school-to-work skills, the IP user-interface mimics the Working Model user-interface. However, some of the advanced Working Model features, e.g., DXF/CAD import, MATLAB interface, and Working Model Basic programming, are not available in Interactive Physics.
