  MtnSim is an inquiry-based computer simulation. Students can directly manipulate initial conditions and immediately see the impact. This interactivity may provide opportunities for students to modify their mental models, by comparing the outputs of the model with their expectations. This interactivity is intended to engage and motivate students to explore and couple actions with effects which will lead to understanding. The special function of displaying summaries in MtnSim is designed to help the learner recognize the relationship between input–output, and help him or her change their problem-solving methods by reflection on previous trials. By looking at the data in detail the student should discover the underlying concepts of the model contained within the simulation. Also, the helps students learn how to adjust their learning strategies and develop self-directed learning ability.
