Abstract

This paper describes the application of a model of discrete event simulation (DES) to be used as a teaching resource in the classroom. Some basic concepts of physics related to refraction and reflection of light, typically taught in high school classes were simulated. A comparison of some relevant aspects, relating the simulation models developed in this work with other existing of similar purpose, was held. As a result, it was found that the models built for this work, besides not requiring large resources of laboratory, demonstrate as significant advantages the dynamic visualization of concepts to be taught, the possibility of adaptation to new parameters, in addition to be built in time relatively short.
