WINDOWS--ALL VERSIONS

ALL THE SOFTWARE AVAILABLE HERE FOR DOWNLOADING IS INTENDED FOR NON-COMMERCIAL EDUCATIONAL USE ONLY. NONE OF THE SOFTWARE SHOULD BE REDISTRIBUTED WITHOUT THE WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE AUTHOR.

{ALL FILES ARE WINZIP SELF EXTRACTING}

JANUARY 2015: TO SIMPLIFY THIS LIBRARY (AS I AM NOW RETIRED) AND TO PREVENT THE WASTEFUL DOWNLOADING OF IDENTICAL FILES, THE AVAILABLE DOWNLOADS HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO THE COMPLETE SETS LISTED BELOW. MOST SOFTWARE WILL RUN IN THREE SCREEN RESOLUTIONS: 1024x768, 1280X960 AND 1600X1200 WITH 800x600 SUPPORTED IN THE ANIMATION SOFTWARE. THE SOFTWARE WILL OPEN THE LARGEST WINDOW THAT WILL FIT YOUR CURRENT SCREEN.

LABORATORY SIMULATIONS click for details

The set includes 14 experiments. The software is designed to simulate the actual experimental setup and data collection. Data analysis and report writing is left to the instructor to define. See the link above for more details.

THE ANIMATED CHALKBOARD click for details

These short animations are designed to be used in a classroom setting, but can also be used individually by students to enhance the understanding of basic principles. See the link above for more details.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT SIMULATORS click for details

These programs offer game style simulations that model the supply and demand systems for energy distribution and use in the United States and the World. The International Energy program also offers a number of other countries and/or regions for modeling. Use the link above to view details. There is now a single download that contains all available simulators. A recent update has fixed an error in the MODEL 3 simulation and has added new instruction files with screen shots for the 4 newest simulators.

NEW: WORLD ENERGY COMPLETE COURSE

This is a 14 lesson course based on one I have taught often. Here the target audience is more general so the amount of physics and math has been reduced. The lessons are Office 2010 Power Point Shows which should run on most Windows and Mac computers. There are a number of embedded animations included in the set. For those with Windows computers or access to Windows computers there is supplemental materials that include more complete and additional animations and the updated International Energy Simulator described elsewhere that can be used as a capstone learning experience for the course. The Power Points can be downloaded separately or in a set with the other software, and that other software can also be download separately.

NEW: THE PHYSICS OF MOTION

This is a semester of material aimed at a general student. There is a considerable amount of Algebra involved, but those segments are mostly optional. The focus is on the conceptual understanding. The course concentrates on motion since this is a common phenomenon and experience for all students. The course examines ideas about motion from Aristotle through Newton to Einstein. The Power Points used include embedded GIF animations on many topics. The Lab Simulation software and full Animation packages available above are recommended for Windows users. The Power Points are self-running and should display on both Windows and Mac machines.

See the download section above.

 

OTHER SOFTWARE PACKAGES

TWO PARAMETER FITTING AND PLOTTING

WHILE USING EXCEL OR DEDICATED GRAPHING SOFTWARE IS MORE THE NORM TODAY, I WROTE THIS SIMPLIFIED PROGRAM TO GIVE ALL STUDENTS EASY ACCESS. THERE ARE CERTAIN FEATURES NOT AVAILABLE IN EXCEL.

 

MACINTOSH

My animation software no longer runs on the Mac so most software is Windows only with the exception of the new Power Point based courses. These should run (even without Power Point on your computer) on both Windows and Mac machines.
