written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
This resource discusses wave interference and quantum waves associated with particles.  Two classical experiments are used to illustrate the different behavior of classical waves and particles, and a shockwave simulation gives an illustration of the quantum double-slit experiment.  Questions lead the students through the tutorial.

Useful, but missing 2 graphics

The fourth and fifth pages are missing graphics, which may lead one to believe that the whole resource is incomplete and unusable, but read on! It does include a nice double slit simulation and you may still find it useful.
