Here you find links to videos I make that will show how to solve a particular kind of problem or how to use a piece of software. I will only make one video for each topic (usually covering basic examples we do in class), because watching me solve the problem is not the same as solving it yourself. These are only intended to help you over the initial hurdles.

The videos are hosted on YouTube, but they are unlisted, which means that you can only get to them through the links below. Physics students looking for demos will have to go to their solutions page.

This is a text-heavy page. The best way to find something is to do a search (ctrl-F on a PC). I've included the flipped lessons here, but they are also listed on a separate page.

Obviously, this page is a work in progress. I will keep adding to it as time goes on, so check back every now and then. I am looking for helping in putting captions on the videos if you need volunteer hours.

(CC) means English captions have been added. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of whatever YouTube thinks I'm saying. Hint: it's usually not what I'm saying.
