This web page contains a set of 3D simulations and visualizations relating to supplement a calculus-based course in Electricity and Magnetism. Topics include the electric field of a positive and a negative charge, van de Graaff generator attracting and repelling a charge, creating and destroying an electric field, charge interactions, interactive molecules in 2D and 3D, lattices, an interactive electrostatic force experiment, and an electrostatic video game. Formats for these resources include Shockwave, Java (jnlp files), and MPEG.
In addition, the TEAL project has made course notes, labs, and presentations available as part of the MIT Open Courseware Repository.
