  • Classical, Quantum, and Statistical Mechanics Education Sites - A collection of links to assorted sites with educational material in these three forms of mechanics.
  • Elementary Physics II - A set of online course notes for introductory physics. Includes electromagnetic fields, relativity, and quantum mechanics.
  • Fear Of Physics - An interactive, visual, and non-technical site that shows some laws of physics in action.
  • Glenbrook South Physics - The GBS physics site is a full-service physics web site which includes lengthy tutorials, a collection of GIF animations, Javascript-driven Internet problems, interactive Shockwave activities, unit reviews (with answers), and sample quizzes.
  • The Gravity Tutorials - Explanations of gravity divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced topics.
  • Guided Readings in Elementary Quantum Mechanics - Contains guided readings in Advanced Physical Chemistry and Theoretical Chemistry, specifically, Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics, with an emphasis on chemical applications. Notice that Guided Reading means what it says, you can not simply read the material contained in this site, you must answer questions about the material as you proceed. These notes allow persons to review/carry out the algebra and calculus for standard quantum mechanical problems.
  • International Baccalaureate Physics Notes - Includes HL and SL mechanics, thermal physics, waves, electricity and magnetism, and atomic and nuclear physics.
  • IUN/FYDE Introductory Physics Notes - These notes constitute a general, non-calculus introductory physics course. They are based on lectures given through the IUN/FYDE distance education program of the University of Winnipeg, which provides access to university level courses for communities outside of Winnipeg
