PhysicsLAB
Welcome to the online physics program, PhysicsLAB™!

PhysicsLAB is starting its 19th academic year online! Begun in June, 1997, at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida, with the support of the school's CCTT grant and Volusia County Schools, the website now includes over 1000 lessons along with interactive labs and worksheets. You may examine the curriculum through any of the links provided on the sidebar.

On the Collegeboard AP Physics website links to PhysicsLAB can be found as Lecture Notes and Tutorials within each content area of the Topic Outline listed in the AP Physics Web Guide. The website is included, as Physics Lab Online, in the American Association of Physics Teachers' ComPADRE website for recommended instructional materials and in the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). The Maryland State Department of Education has included the labs in PhysicsLAB in its online instructional toolkit. Cambridge University's Department of Engineering has included resources from PhysicsLAB in their online undergraduate program. All of this in addition to the greatest affirmation that lies in the fact that countless teacher-based instructional websites throughout the nation link to PhysicsLAB to assist their school's students with its lessons, worksheets, and labs.

The Table of Contents presents the site's curricular materials in a chapter format, while the search engine will allow you to locate curriculum by course, curriculum group, topic, skill, and keyword. Please take a moment and generalize yourself with the directions on how to use PhysicsLAB. Any original curriculum that was not converted to our new XML format can still be accessed by visiting PhysicsLAB's first edition companion website, Curriculum Guide, where information is organized into content areas and instructional units for visiting educators.

Collateral math lessons, studyaids, and practice pages that support over 150 algebra, geometry, trig, calculus, and statistics topics needed for the successful completion of high school science courses are available through AlgebraLAB, an two-year project funded by Florida's Enhancing Education Through Technology grants.(2002-04)

PhysicsLAB will continue to be maintained and new curriculum developed each year. There is no fee to access these materials.
