Here are a few links to other physics teaching websites:
The Science Behind a Bicycle Website has helpful info about simple machines, in spite of the spelling error in its headline. It breaks down the science of a bicycle and all the simple machines involved that make a bike work. Thanks to Piper for calling my attention to it!
The Newton's Laws & Car Physics Website has links to several useful videos and websites. Thanks to Tess for calling my attention to it!
The Physics Education Technology Website has some neat simulation programs; I especially like the one about simple electric circuits.
The Intuitor Creative Learning Website has sections about nurturing gifted children,
good reasons for taking high school physics, a basic physics savvy quiz, a section on chess strategy,
a section on "insultingly stupid movie physics", and many other topics of interest.
The University of Maryland has a fine physics education resource site.
Wolfgang Christian has a fascinating Physlets website with downloadable Java applets which display
moving diagrams and lend themselves to interactive instruction. For more info visit the Applets Resources site.
I particularly liked Melissa Dancy's interactive ray diagram exercises as described in THE PHYSICS TEACHER,Vol 40, November, 2002.
Some simple diagnostic/remedial tests (with solutions) in introductory physics can be found at
Bill Rachinger's site from Monash University in Australia.
C. Rod Nave of Georgia State University has created a web-based Hypercard physics text.
Many thanks to David Wu for correcting that link!
Ron Greene's Physics Illuminations Project (PIP)
is a source of web-based conceptual homework with a score-management system.
Karl Hahn has put together a fine calculus website: (I am very proud to say he is a former student of mine.)
Nick Frasier has recently posted a very extensive Atomic Physics Resource List with links to many relevant websites all around the world.
