Wake Forest Physics
Physics Education Resources
The faculty in the Physics Department at Wake Forest University are actively involved in physics education. We have developed a series of resources that should be useful to any person interested in physics and these resources are provided here.
For the development of these resources, the support of the Wake Forest University IS Department, through their STARs and Tablet PC programs, is gratefully acknowledged.
This is a series of videos involving specific lecture demonstrations useful for understanding physics concepts. Each demonstration focuses on one or a small number of important concepts.
Watch Wake Forest University Department of Physics professors lecture on various concepts typically covered in a two semester general physics course.
Watch videos in which Wake Forest University Department of Physics professors narrate, with notation and speech, derivations and problem solutions.

UPDATE for Instructors: A new version of the i>clicker software is now available. The biggest change is in the file structure. You will no longer need to keep separate copies of the MyCourse folders. A single copy of the new executables will provide you with a menu to choose which course you want to access. You may continue to use the older versions of the software if you prefer the old method. If you would like to use the new software and access your old course folders, read the following conversion guide first.
Instructors: Download the following zip archive file ONLY if you would like to continue using the old method. The extracted archive will be a folder with the files necessary to use the i>clicker system. You need to save a copy of this folder to your hard drive for every section you teach. Name each folder accordingly.
In Olin Hall, frequency AA is reserved for Olin 101. For any other room in Olin , see Eric Chapman for the appropriate frequency.
The faculty have agreed to use the student's WFU login name (email less @wfu.edu) for the student roster ID.
