Customer Reviews

Wonderful, engaging lectures

I'm an independent study student for Physics because they don't offer AP at my school, and I'm also a lab specialist for the science pod. Professor Lewin is the best teacher I can have for this - his lectures are ordered well, have proofs when I need them, and use memorable demonstrations to help integrate the concepts into my head. I have suggested some labs based on his lectures to the Physics teachers and they are very effective. I also use his examples when I tutor kids in Physics and they always understand and enjoy them better than whatever the textbook says.

So these lectures help more than those who watch them. Thank you for putting them here in iTunes U. I really appreciate it. Professor Lewin is brilliant.

Very helpful

I don't attend MIT, but I watched these lectures in conjunction with my E&M class and they cleared up all the confusion I had. Prof. Lewin knows the common hang ups that students have with this material, and he clears them up nicely. I highly recommend these lectures.

Gotta watch if you're taking a physics course!!

The best lecture I've ever seen. I hope the rest of the lectures are as informative as the first!!!!!
