Discover Physics is a conceptual physics textbook intended for students in a nonmathematical one-semester general-education course.
This is a nonmathematical physics textbook, designed so that it can be used either for a semester-length course of the type popularized by Hewitt, or for a shorter course of 8 or 10 weeks. This book is essentially a rewritten version of Discover Physics. The rewrite is intended to do two things: (1) make the book less closely tied to a particular method of teaching, and (2) make it possible to use the book in shorter courses (such as Fullerton College's Physical Science 103A) with the omission o

PSU/SL Physics Animations Portal
This web site contains a large collection of animations illustrating basic concepts in Physics and Astronomy. It covers topics in Astronomy, Mechanics, Vectors, Electricity and Magnetism, Optics, Waves, and Modern Physics at both introductory and an advanced undergraduate level. Users can browse by topic or search for relevant animations. Animations can be viewed in a number of different formats, either embedded in a web page or through the downloaded media file.
The current online Andes Physics course is intended to be used with most physics textbooks. It supplements the textbook by providing problems for students to solve with the aid of Andes, an intelligent tutoring system developed at the University of Pittsburgh and the United States Naval Academy with funding from the Cognitive Science program of the Office of Naval Research. Students solve typical textbook problems just as they would with pencil and paper, by entering vectors, coordinate systems,
National Task Force on Undergraduate Physics
The National Task Force on Undergraduate Physics is a project sponsored by the American Association of Physics Teachers. It's purpose is to investigate the revitalization of undergraduate physics departments. This site provides information about the Task Force, as well as a report by the Strategic Programs for Innovations in Undergraduate Physics which used campus site visits to provide specific insight into what makes an undergraduate physics program thrive.

Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;
Physics 21: Science from Superheroes to Global Warming
Have you ever wondered if Superman could really fly? What was Spiderman's spidey sense? How did Wonder Woman's invisible jet work? What does it really mean for something to be a scientific "fact"? Explore how science works and what constitutes "good" science through case studies drawn from a wide spectrum of people's experience, for example superheros, movies, and real world issues such as global warming. The case studies will provide the chance to act as science critics as the students develop
How swarming theory could inform plasma physics and financial markets
Postgraduate researcher Robert Wicks talks about how a tool to analyse swarming could be used to analyse plasma in the solar wind and movements in financial markets.
European Security Architecture - A Paradigm Shift?
Toomas Hendrik Ilves has served as President of Estonia since 2006. Prior to this he was a member of the European Parliament. He has held a variety of diplomatic posts including serving two terms as Foreign Minister. He graduated with a BA from Columbia University and an MA from Pennsylvania University, both in Psychology.
Architecture as Investment: New Forms of Social Equity
The challenge to provide affordable housing is a global issue. At a time when market forces are eclipsing architecture's social value, Elemental's pioneering housing is transforming urban communities in Latin America.
The Strange Friendship of Pauli and Jung: when physics met psychology
(Editors note: Unfortunately, owing to a technical fault, the last few minutes of the lecture are missing from the podcast) At a key time in his scientific development, Pauli was undergoing analysis by Jung. What can we learn about Pauli and his scientific discoveries from Jung's analysis of his dreams? Arthur I Miller is emeritus professor of history and philosophy of science at University College London.
