Physics Teaching for the 21st Century is a resource for teachers who are interested in teaching physics concepts in real world contexts.

The great problems of the 20th century were solved by a few incredibly smart people. The great problems of the 21st century will have to be solved by billions of moderately smart people. This is where teachers come in...

In this website you will find:

* articles that clearly explain the physics concepts in a real world context
* take-home experiments that can be done by students or by teachers as demonstrations in class
* lecture notes in the form of power point presentations
* multiple choice questions to use as a quick test of understanding during lectures, and as a way to stimulate critical thinking.
* problem sets and exam questions that would interest students (including solutions)
* data sheets with realistic numbers and information
* videos further explaining physics concepts in real world contexts

HippoCampus, part of the Open Education Resources effort (OER), offers multimedia course materials and homework help to high school and college students free of charge. The Physics section provides sequenced multimedia course materials for introductory/general physics, college preparatory physics, and AP physics. Materials are formatted in Adobe Flash, with multiple short video clips, animations, and interactive question-and-answer sets. Narration accompanying each slide may be turned on or off. Of particular interest to physics teachers and learners is that each module is specifically correlated to more than a dozen widely-used physics textbooks. Lesson materials are organized by course, unit, and by key-word. This is part of a growing project involving many academic institutions whose goal is to improve access to high-quality educational opportunities for all people. The overall project includes course materials for biology, physics, algebra and calculus, American history and government, psychology, and environmental science.

This resource website for the IPAL project provides a free and open-source Moodle module to support in-class student polling. A stand-alone program for non-Moodle users is also available. This module provides a web-based interface for teachers and students engaged in peer instruction or other classroom quizzing and a database of ready-to-use, peer reviewed questions. Students can use cell phones, laptops, other web-enabled devices, and clickers to respond to in-class polling questions. A goal of the IPAL project is to determine if an analysis of student response patterns during polling sessions may allow an early identification of students who are at risk of dropping a course or dropping out of school.

Physlet Physics contains a collection of exercises spanning the introductory physics sequence. These exercises use computer animations generated in Java applets to show physics content. We call these Java applets Physlets (Physics content simulated with Java applets). The second edition to Physlet Physics represents a major change in how the 800 Physlet-based interactive materials are delivered to teachers and students alike. Instead of accessing materials off of the CD that came with the first edition, now users simply access the Physlet Physics 2E from ComPADRE. This new edition is compatible with Java 6 and 7 and offers improved speed and security.
