Physics Classroom:  A great site that follows our course syllabus almost exactly.   It contains tutorials and additional information, including some animations to explain physics concepts.

Simulations:


NTNU Java Applets
Great Simulations of Physics Phenomena - Requires JAVA


LIne Rider:  A fun simulation of conservation of energy and also the forces involved in circular motion - draw a line and a man on a sled will ride along the line you draw . . . experiment with loops and jumps - have fun!!!

Monkey Lander:  Fun Simulation of Forces on a rocket landing on the moon - a class favorite!

PHET simulation: Very Colorful Simulations of Modern Physics and Optics.

Physics 2000: More Good Simulations that Require JAVA

Flash Physics Animations : A compilation of Flash Animations for Physics

Colors and Color Vision: A great site with interactive demos of color vision

Kirchhoff's Rules Demonstration;  Good simulation of the calculation of Kirchhoff's Loop rules using a real circuit with multiple batteries.
