Then, what does simmer mean on an electric stove?
Simmering is bringing a liquid to the state of being just below boiling. If your pot begins to boil, turn the heat down to maintain that gentle bubbling. It is a cooking technique that can mean the difference between fluffy and burnt rice and between tender and tough stew meat.

Also to know is, what do the numbers on a stove mean?
On most any stove top the dials or knobs will have the numbers from 1 to 9 printed on the knobs or on the stove itself. If you set the number on the temperature dial to 9, this is the highest heat temperature. If you set the number on the temperature dial to 1, this is the lowest heat temperature.
Can I leave something simmering on the stove?
When you're simmering, as long as there is fluid left, the pot cannot be heated to a temperature higher than near boiling water. While you cannot put your hand in it, boiling water cannot set curtains or dish rags alight - the temperature isn't high enough. More physics than chemistry.
