DETAILS

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}

WITH MANY OF THE SOFTWARE PACKAGES UPDATED IN EARLY 2019, ONLY THE LAB SIMULATIONS AND THE ONE ENERGY MANAGEMENT SIMULATION REMAIN AS TRUE BASIC PROGRAMS. THESE REQUIRE AT LEAST 1024x768 SCREEN RESOLUTIONS BUT WILL DISPLAY AT HIGHER RESOLUTIONS IF AVAILABLE. THESE PROGRAMS ARE SENSITIVE TO WINDOWS SETTING, ESPECIALLY IN WINDOWS 10. SEE THE WARNING ABOVE.

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. I have started posting newly formatted files using GIF format (this precludes some interaction) that will run in both the Windows and Mac worlds. These are supplied both as raw GIFs for your own applications and in short, self running Power Points with accompanying instruction. The older True Basic, Windows only animations have been discontinued since newer versions of Windows and the current Mac OS have added difficulties to running the old software that can no longer be repaired.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT SIMULATORS click for details

AS OF JANUARY 2019, ONLY THE INTERNATIONAL SIMULATOR WILL BE OFFERED. IT DOES CONTAIN THE UNITED STATES AS ONE OF THE COUNTRIES/REGIONS FOR STUDY.

NEW: ENERGY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY 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 the International Energy Simulator is highly recommended as a capstone exercise.

The whole course has been updated with some new animations and some updated data as of January 2019.

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 available above is recommended for Windows users. The Power Points are self-running and should display on both Windows and Mac machines.

[THIS FILE HAS BEEN UPDATED JANUARY 27, 2019 WITH NEW ANIMATIONS.]

See the download section above.

AGAIN, SEE THE NOTE AT THE TOP OF THIS FILE ABOUT LATER VERSIONS OF WINDOWS. CHANGING THE SCREEN SETTING TO ABOVE 100% FOR TEXT AND APPS CAN INTERFERE WITH SOME OF THE WINDOWS SOFTWARE. RESETTING (RIGHT CLICK ON THE DESKTOP AND CHOOSE DISPLAY SETTINGS) TO 100% (TEMPORARILY) SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM. THIS SHOULD NOT AFFECT THE POWERPOINT BASED PACKAGES.

MACINTOSH

While I did offer a full set of MacIntosh versions, my development software was never updated for system 10 and beyond. The lab simulations and energy management simulators are consequently Windows only. However, both of the new full courses and the new Animated Chalkboard software are offered in a Mac friendly format. Converting all the animation sequences into the GIF format and embedding these in Power Point Shows (with appropriate choice of fonts) should allow Mac users to use this newer software.
