written by the Wiley InterScience
This collection contains simulations and tutorials for a large variety of topics, including Newtonian mechanics, E & M, optics, and more.  Each simulation has an audio clip explaining its purpose, along with student notes on the phenomenon and self-test questions. The tutorials are designed so that students can independently use them to strengthen conceptual understanding.

NOTE: This resource is especially appropriate for students with language/communication disabilities.  The accompanying audio clips explain the processes occurring in the simulations.

Please note that this resource requires Flash.
