Physclips

It's certainly not impossible to learn about Newton's laws, momentum and other key principles of physics without multimedia learning activities, but it's a bit more fun to have such resources on hand. With funding from The Australian Learning and Teaching Council, Professor Joe Wolfe of The University of New South Wales has created this rather remarkable set of physics teaching resources. Visitors...
