This site contains a combination of interactive simulations and lecture notes on harmonic oscillators, resonance, nonlinear dynamics, and chaos. The simulations were designed to be adaptable to both algebra-based and calculus-based physics students, while the lectures target the calculus-based classroom. Users can change variables such as the length of the pendulum, damping, amplitude, and frequency and view the result of the changes. Help for users is available with a single click. The lecture page offers four detailed chapters that explain the physics and calculus-based mathematics behind the pendulum simulations.
