Welcome ~ From the Editor

Welcome to the MERLOT Physics Portal, a collection of educational resources for instructors and students of physics. The collection focuses on open access and open source content that improves conceptual understanding and problem solving. You can help build the collection by joining MERLOT, submitting content, lesson plans, and activities, and volunteering to join the peer review process.


The Editor's Choice 2014: This project provides a wide range of visual, interactive quantum mechanics tutorials. The materials cover all aspects of an upper-level quantum mechanics class, as well as advanced topics in quantum information and the foundations of quantum theory.
