Part of the MIT TEAL/Studio Physics Project, this web page contains a set of simulations relating to vector fields. Each of the visualizations was developed to supplement the MIT Physics 8.02 course in calculus-based Electricity and Magnetism. Topics include vector cross product, interactive field mapping, path and surface integrals, circulating flow of particles, particle sink, and flow fields with a variety of animated patterns.  

In addition, the TEAL project has made course notes, labs, and presentations available as part of its Open Courseware Repository:
