This site does a great job with helping the user to visualize the basic
applications of physics, with the interactive Java applet animations and the
brief explainations. The Java applet animations present the user with important
physics learning activities which enhances the sites significantly. The site can
easily be used to enhance teaching and learning of physics because the Java
applets are clear and well-constructed. Teachers can use the Java applets as
visual demonstrations in class and students can use them to further their
understanding of physics applications.

Technical Remarks:

The site is technically well designed and constructed with easy to use Java
applets. The Java applets are simple to read and labeled clearly. The authors
use a lot of detail throughout the site not only in the Java applets, but also
in the explainations of the applets. The site is not difficult to navigate and
the materials are straightforward in understanding.
