4434Probability in Quantum Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74955
Probability has applications in classical physics, but it plays a more essential role in quantum physics. We can take examples from quantum mechanics without raising the mathematical or computational level appreciably, but for those with no previous knowledge of the subject, the brief outline given below may not be adequate.Quantum Mechanics for the Uninitiated (i.e., for those who are still sane...)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=480556
A presentation on the nature of science and how it relates to quantum mechanics. Level is for high school to beginning college. Takes the viewer through the quirks and seeming paradoxes of quantum mechanics, including the double slit experiment and Schrodinger's Cat.Quantum Mechanics Resource Packet

This applet displays the pictures and programming code for a square well, notchshaped, and parabolic potentials. Also, it displays a particle sloshing in a well with a bump in the middle, suggestions for a onedimensional lattice and a spherically symmetric 3D potential well, and information on Heisenbergs Uncertainty Relation. The Maple programming code is available in text and downloadable form for most of these scenarios.Richard Feynman: The Douglas Robb Memorial Lectures
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80259
A set of four archival recordings from the University of Auckland (New Zealand) of the physicist Richard Feynman. The lectures focus on the quantum nature of light and Quantum Electrodynamics.
