Minds on Physics Internet Modules
A Version 4.5.2 update was uploaded on September 2 at 5 PM. This version includes fixes addressing the log-in issues occurring on Mac computers (running the El Capitan and Sierra OS) that caused the program to freeze when logging in with Student ID and Teacher Code. Clearing caches and refreshing screen will be required to get the full update.
Tired of Shockwave?
The Minds On Physics Internet Modules use the Shockwave plug-in. Support for Shockwave by most modern browsers is diminishing. But fear not! The Minds On Physics program has now been completely converted to a mobile app that works on iOS and Android phones and tablets, and on Chromebooks. The most promising means of doing MOPs at this time may be through the use of the mobile app on an iOS device, an Android device, or a Chromebook. And as of August 28th, the Minds On Physics the App series is available for Mac OS. We are currently working on a Windows version.

Teacher Accounts for 2016-17
As we transition our Minds On Physics program from a browser-based, Shockwave-reliant application to an app-based program, we are considering a variety of options that allow teachers to validate student progress. Those teachers who purchased a 2015-16 Teacher account will continue to have access to the Shockwave-based module through the 2016-17 school year. This will allow those teachers who purchased accounts to continue their code checking at no additional charge, provided that the Shockwave-based module works on their devices. We are working on other options for checking student success codes that are not reliant upon the Shockwave plug-in and that work on all devices. We will provide information regarding those options once they are available. The Minds On Physics the App section of our website has additional information about the app-based version of Minds On Physics.
