Introductory Physics

Interactive Lessons

All core instructional content is delivered through short and focused text, video, animations, and simulations.

  • Over 900 activities, videos, and simulations deliver instruction in class or allow students to review on their own.
  • Animations proceed step-by-step through each key idea and concept.
  • Hundreds of animations illustrate physics in action, allowing anticipation, replaying, and discussion.
  • Summary videos encapsulate the key ideas of each topic.
  • Professional audio accompanies all instruction providing support for all learners.


  • Pause at any time to record data points or rerun using different starting values.
  • Simulations encourage collaborative learning and include
    —driving a car through a 3D city to experiment with motion in two dimensions
    —dragging a test charge into a field and observing the direction and magnitude of force
    —recreating part of the Curies’ famous experiment on alpha particles
    —analyzing a substance using a mass spectrometer simulation
    —exploring advanced topics such as rotational motion and angular momentum
