Abstract

This paper will discuss the drawbacks of traditional method, traditional classroom and laboratory. Next, it will explain the negative impacts of traditional method toward students’ learning process. The negative impacts are learning difficulties and misconceptions. Therefore, scientists had proposed several alternatives to traditional method. The most suitable alternative is computer assisted class and laboratory. Simulation is an application that is highly accepted in a computer assisted class and laboratory. Simulation possesses several advantages that are highly suitable for learning physical science, and these advantages will be discussed in this paper. Scientists argue that the most suitable approach in learning physical science using simulation is inquiry based learning approach that implements collaborative method. This paper therefore attempts to propose a web based simulation system with an inquiry-based learning approach to elevate or eliminate learning difficulties and misconceptions among students.
