This course on the fundamentals of classical physics comes from one of the best universities — MIT. Prof. The course features lecture notes, problem sets with solutions, exams with solutions, links to related resources and a complete set of videotaped lectures. The 35 video lectures by Professor Lewin, were recorded on the MIT campus during the Fall of 1999.

Prof. Lewin is well-known at MIT and beyond for his dynamic and engaging lecture style, which, I am sure you will notice. To find more lecture notes, study materials, and more courses at head here.

Here is an introductory video:
