The Physics Classroom is an online physics tutorial written for high school physics students. Through individual lessons and accompanying quizzes, this very informative site includes a physics tutorial that covers everything from Newton's Laws to Refraction. The Multimedia and Shockwave Physics Studios give excellent animations and movies that allow students to reinforce their learning through visualizations. The review and problem solving modules help students study and the teacher tools provide lessons and student activities.
