The Physlet Physics web site provides a technology-enhanced introduction to physics. Interactive java simulations are used to illustrate and explore physics topics, covering the material found in most introductory courses. The broad topics covered are Mechanics, Fluids, Waves, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism, Circuits, and Optics.
Each chapter of the web site is broken into three types of resources. Illustrations provide a introduction to the topic through simulations. Explorations are tutorials guiding students through deeper investigations of the topic. Problems are simulation-based homework. Many chapters also include downloadable worksheets to supplement the simulations.
Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.5 of
Java Applet Plug-in.
