107 Help Videos as of 5/25/18


Here is one of the best set of videos I have found on Physics for the high school student. Check this out.   You will have to pause it a lot because she goes pretty fast.  CRASH COURSE IN PHYSICS.  Click here to watch the first video.

Here’s the ENTIRE Physics course at MIT: Everything you need.  This is the college version with calculus, but it is taught by the master, Walter Lewin. Oh if you need me, I’ll be lounging at home sipping on a big cup of coffee while contemplating the future of teaching.

Here are a set of 45 Physics help videos that are pretty quick and to the point,  They don’t go into a lot of detail and they are fairly simple, but sometimes that is what you need. These are made by The New Boston Educators




I tried to list the following help videos as you need them in the my course.  I will probably have to adjust them from time to time.
