The first edition of Physlet Physics was an interactive book and CD for the teaching of introductory physics on the high school and college level. Physlet Physics was originally published as part of Prentice Hall’s Series in Educational Innovation. The second edition to Physlet Physics represents a major change in how the 800 Physlet-based interactive materials are delivered to teachers and students alike. Instead of accessing materials off of the CD that came with the first edition, now users simply access the Physlet Physics 2E AAPT ComPADRE web site via a Java enabled browser on desktop and laptop computers.
The Java-based materials described in this book do not run on most tablets. However as described in the Preface, the book can be run from desktop/laptop computers via a browser that can access the Google Play Books section of your Google account.
