as well as experiments: the former structure relations
and simplify reality to a degree such that predictions on
physical phenomena can be derived by means of math-
ematics. The latter allow verification or falsification of
these predictions. Computer sciences allow a new access to
this relationship, especially well-suited for education: New
Technologies provide simulations for the model, virtual
instruments for running and evaluating real experiments
and mathematical toolkits to solve equations derived from
the theory analytically and to compare the outcome of all
three methods. We will demonstrate this approach on two
examples: Ferromagnetism and thermodynamics.
