Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey everyone,

I am currently taking College Physics I which covers basic mechanics, Newtonian physics, and some other various topics. It is algebra based, as I didn't have physics in high school. I was wondering if there are any good YouTube channels that you all find helpful? I normally watch KhanAcademy, or (for math) PatrickJMT before my lectures so I have a general idea of what will be covered. I find this works well for me on top of reading the book before class.

However, I haven't really found any good YouTube channels. The KhanAcademy one is okay, but it honestly seems a little bit below College Physics, even though it should be the same since its basically high school level physics. I am comfortable with calculus (I'm enrolled in Cal. 2), so I've tried Walter Lewin and the likes, but I feel like focusing on calculus based physics currently will be a mistake. It seems to make more intuitive sense to me, but I think it'll work better if I avoid it until next semester when I am in engineering physics.

Thanks.

MIT doesn't offer algebra based physics.
