My rating of this resource: ****

My experience using this resource:

Topic I was teaching:
Heat transfer

My learning goal for which this resource was used:
The students will be able to define and distinguish between conduction, convection, and radiation.

Course Level:
Intro or Regular

How I/my students used the resource:
The students accessed the Heat Game through my web site. They played the game until a score of at least 18 out of 20 was achieved.

Value Added:
Provides practice or tutorial, Provides assessment opportunity, Increases student engagement and motivation

The game covers major concepts of the heat and termperature topic. It is very effective as a learning tool because it allows for checking the answer after each question so that the students can see where they made a mistake. Also, one can restart the game and practice the questions until the desired score is reached.
