New and improved video pages

New: An index page for Jearl Walker's Kinetic Karnival series, with links to the videos and links to question set worksheets for four of the six episodes. Oldies but goodies.

Also new, an index page for The Mechanical Universe episodes I use. It links to Annenberg's Mechanical Universe page and to my question set worksheets are there for the College Editions. The high school adaptations don't yet stream, so you'll need to pony up to get the short and sweet versions stripped of the calculus. But links to my question sets are there. Is The Mechanical Universe growing long in the tooth? Perhaps. Is there a video series as solid on the fundamentals of physics? None that I know of.

Improved: I've update the burgeoning YouTube Physics page to include this video set, the Mount Tavurvur Volcano Eruption, the Victoria Phyz Falls Baird Bungee Bounce, and Bree's Color Subtraction videos, among others. Worth a visit if you've never been or haven't been in a while.

ClassicsThe Hewitt Drew It Physics Screencasts remain conveniently catalogued here.

Full Conceptual Physics Alive! Hewitt lecture videos are available for purchase on DVD or streaming from Arbor Scientific. My video question sets are also available at ArborSci. The videos and questions sets come in very handy for everyday lessons, and become golden in the event of unexpected absences (illness, jury duty, etc.).

Also classic: Cosmos. Cal Sagan's Personal Voyage and Neil deGrasse Tyson's Spacetime Odyssey.

Because there are so many flavors of video I like to have access to, I've created a separate index page (and removed most links from the home page).

The Video Index Page of Phyz. Now how silly do you feel for squandering that ski week that's coming to an end?

Got a hot tip for a pedagogy-rich video clip or series? Let us know!
