Physics Anyone?

Earlier today I was doing some surfing and happened upon a link to The Mechanical Universe. The Mechanical Universe is a series of ~30 minute segments which comprise an overview of the 52 sessions of what was, at the time, the Freshman Physics curriculum at Cal Tech.

The series features Dr. David Goodstein, and the material is presented with explanations of abstract subject matter that a layman with entry level Differential and Integral Calculus can understand.

The best feature of the site at the link above is that you can click on the VoD icons and view streaming videos of each of the sessions. Very nice, and quite generous considering the 25 year old series still costs $450USD if you purchase it on DVD.

An outstanding series.
