Miller Single Concept Films in Physics

Franklin Miller

The video clips on this page have been digitized from the DVD available from Ztek, Co.( and are used with permission. The following description is taken from the cover of the DVD case: "The videos in this collection are transcribed from the film series produced by Franklin Miller, Jr., Kenyon College at the Ohio State University under a grant from the National Science Foundation. These are copies from the original negatives that were made in 1962-1963. The transfers to videotape and videodisc were made in 1993 under the supervision of Professor Miller, with the expectation that many of them would prove to be still useful in teaching elementary physics at various levels...The films were originally designed to be silent, to encourage use of the same footage in classrooms at various levels, at the teacher's choice. A sound track has been added with the narration being written by Professor Miller. The use of the recorded narration is optional."

To view the following videos, you must have QuickTime installed on your computer. The pages are designed to be viewed at 1024x768 screen resolution. At the moment, we recommend you use Internet Explorer, rather than Netscape to view the movies.
