The lay-out is unique in that it shows the inter-connectedness of several areas of physics. I have not used this site in my classes personally, but was wondering if other instructors stress this aspect (regarding the sub-fields being interlinked) to their students!

Great reference! Explains concepts at intro college level. (Wikipedia is too technical for most students.) Concept map layout is easy to navigate.

The comprehensive nature of this site is fantastic. Students have an easy time finding the information that they need and seem to like to use it for that extra explanation.
