Physical Sciences Resource Center (PSRC)
Provides teacher resources.

Wonders of Physics
Physics demonstrations chosen to be entertaining as well as educational. Presentations for the general public on the UW-Madison campus in mid-February each year.

Math and Physics Help Home Page
Features a collection of papers that the author and others have written to explain various concepts in math and physics.

Visual Quantum Mechanics
Instructional units that introduce quantum physics to high school and college students who do not have a background in modern physics or higher level math.

Contemporary Physics Education Project (CPEP)
Presents the current understanding of particle physics and fusion research. Intended as an introduction for high-school and college students, and as a teacher resource.

Physics Demonstration Resources
Physics demonstration resources online with URLs and brief descriptions. A must-see resource for anyone interested in learning how to do physics demonstrations.

UM-StL 1D Acceleration Solver
Program to solve relativistic (near light-speed) and ordinary (e.g. homework) acceleration problems using 1D equations standard to introductory physics.
Posts solutions to physics problems. Online help is available.

Map-Based Motion at Any Speed
Resources to empower students familiar with only classical kinematics, in the solution of relativistic acceleration problems graphically and/or with help from Galileo's equations.
