Conceptual Physics Podcast
|The Ursinus Conceptual Physics Podcast is a project started by Prof. Tom Carroll in 2008. The goal of the project is to provide a series of short (7-10 minute) podcasts that can supplement the lecture portion of the course. They are short enough that you could conceivably listen between classes. Each podcast will typically ask at least one question for you to think about. A brief musical interlude will follow such questions; this is your signal to pause for a moment and think about your answer.
The project is still experimental an open to feedback. Feel free to comment at this page or to send email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Podcasts are currently being made only for General Physics I, though if there is interest, podcasts could be produced for other classes.
