Added: 01/22/2009 By far the most useful site for online labs. They cover most of the topics in physics and do an excellent job. The site provides teacher generated lesson plans with the simulations for those who are looking for ideas.
Added: 01/22/2009 Really like the "graph that motion" and "name that motion" simulations. They are a good to use if your students are not understanding the meaning of motion graphs. They are simple, basic, and get to the point.
Added: 01/23/2009 Just plain FUN!!!! This is a great way to add life to your lectures and the students love it. These are short clips from warner brothers roadrunner and coyote cartoons that illustrate different concepts in mechanics.
Added: 01/23/2009 This is great if your school is lacking in optics materials or if there is no way to get your class dark enough to do optics. It is easy for the students to use and there is even a sample lab for you start off from.
Added: 03/13/2009 This is a great site for simulations that are harder to find. For example: there is a classic bucket on a ladder for torque, a rotating snowman for conservation of angular momentum, and a really nice banked curve simulation.
Added: 02/08/2009 Labs and demonstrations that are simple but work. A lot of the labs have a written componet for teachers who are looking for ideas. Most of the simulations could also be a nice component to a lecture. The site is linked to physicslessons.com which is a great resource for a new teacher!!!!!
