  Abstract: Geometer's Sketchpad by Key Curriculum Press was created as a tool for teachers and students to model geometric situations. We have adapted it to create dynamic models of physics phenomena. We will show how to create an illustration and give examples of teacher and student sketches. We suggest the student is learning physics by building the sketch and then by using it as a tool to explore and analyze physics concepts.
