Confused by Physics? Let's Figure it Out

In summary, the conversation discusses the topic of relativity in school and the speaker's lack of understanding. They ask if there are any good online resources to explain the concept, as they do not want to ask the teachers directly. Some recommended websites for understanding relativity are mentioned, with the caveat that they may require a certain level of background knowledge to fully comprehend.

The least technical site I know of about relativity which still might be useful:

http://www.onestick.com/relativity/ "Winner of the Pirelli relativity challenge"

If you have the background the other sites mentioned are good, but since you are having trouble understanding your teacher I suspect you may not have the background to understand them, either :-(. (I don't know for sure, of course, since I don't have any real idea of what your background is).
