The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom is a set of online physics tutorials. Aimed at high school students, this website takes surfers on step-by-step tours through the material. Topics include Newton's laws of motion, kinetics, wave functions, reflection and refraction. A good example of the thorough work put into this site is the lesson on Einstein's Special theory of Relativity. By simply clicking and reading through the lesson, the user experiences a learning process in practice. The lessons are completed by solving a test quiz, which is not too imposing and works well as a lesson round-up. Also visit Multimedia Physics Studios
