The websites consist of a variety of concepts from classical mechanics to modern physics.  The material in the website is mostly in the high school and mid-lower college level.  This website explains concepts using diagrams and pictures.  As a teacher, I would be able to use these diagrams to explain the purpose of using the right hand rule for magnetism, torque, and electricity.

Physlets is a java applet that is used for science education.  This website consists of many assessments and teaching material including animation presentations. This website has an excellent doppler effect amination that I can use to explain the doppler effect.


Assessing-to-Learn Physics

Added 03/17/2014

Assessing-to-Learn Physics contains questions and problems that can be used in the classroom.  These questions are categorized by level of education and the concept.  I could use this website for a variety of concepts because it can help to create objectives and goals when creating a lesson plan.


PhET - Physics Education Technology at the University of Colorado

Added 03/17/2014

PhET ( Physics Education Technology at the University of Colorado) contains a collection of simulation and virtual labs.  This website is very helpful for teaching circuits.  It provides a real life situation that allows the user to make their own connections when building a circuit.  Students can learn the "do's" and "don'ts" when building their own circuit.


Ask an astronomer

Added 03/17/2014

Ask an astronomer ( is a website that consists of concepts that include astronomy and space science.  What I found interesting about this website is the fact that if anyone has a question that is related to space science or astronomy, they can ask someone through social media.  This website will be very helpful not only to me as a teacher but to students who are interested in learning more about space science and astronomy outside of the classroom.
