Richard Byrne has updated his list of sites that provide free videos. His top five list is below: * Next Vista * PBS Video * Explore.org * The National Film Board of Canada * Vimeo Each link provides a short description of what the site has to offer. You will also be able to access the fill list of sites through this post. Videos are a great tool to quickly engage students in learning and this list of websites as well as this search engine are great options to put in your toolbox.

I will certainly be sharing this with staff at my school! The list is thorough and gives a brief desciption of each of the sites mentioned. The list is also uptodate, having just been checked and edited by it's original creator.

Balancing concise mathematical analysis with the realworld examples and practical applications that inspire students, this textbook provides a clear and approachable introduction to the physics of waves. The author shows through a broad approach how wave phenomena can be observed in a variety of physicalsituations and explains how their characteristics are linked to specific physical rules, from Maxwell’s equations to Newton’s laws of motion. Building on the logic and simple physics behind each phenomenon, the book draws on everyday, practical applications of wave phenomena, ranging from electromagnetism to oceanography, helping to engage students and connect core theory with practice. Mathematical derivations are kept brief and textual commentary provides a nonmathematical perspective. Optional sections provide more examples along with higherlevel analyses and discussion. This textbook introduces the physics of wave phenomena in a refreshingly approachable way, making it ideal for first and secondyear undergraduate students in the physical sciences. Table of Contents1 The essence of wave motion
