After about an hour of trying it, I find this to be a mixed bag. Some items are
good, but there is a lot of repetition. It appears to be a work in progress,
but presently there are too many things missing for it to be very useful to
students. Its incompleteness would be even more of a drawback for faculty
thinking of assigning it for homework. The XVA applet (which is also a separate
item on MERLOT) is excellent, but is not used actively much at all. Instead,
the site includes a large library of static kinematics graph cases. Skip this
and go directily to the XVA applet.

Technical Remarks:

A couple of simulations require a VRML plugin, but the pedagogical value of them
is probably insufficient for the time involved.

Many of the pages are useful resources in physics instruction. Others are
not-so useful. The online quiz on circular motion, however, is quite good and
could be used as an assignment by teachers. The author needs to differentiate
between "centripetal" and "net centripetal," however.
