Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, im confused in some areas of this topic at school and i was wondering if you guys knew any good tutorials online that i could learn from. Tried a few sites but they are "wayyy" above my head.

The things i need to know is like, the angles in radians, diplacenment, acceleration, speed, damping etc.

thanks

Hrmm? I'm not sure if I understand what exactly you need to know about simple harmonic motion. What level are you at with math?

Tried a few sites but they are "wayyy" above my head.
I did a Google search and got dozens of good hits. Have you tried any of those ?

How are they above your head ?

Have you tried the http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/Hbase/shm.html" [Broken]. Do you have a course text? I'm assuming that your doing your A-Levels, in which case many examination boards publish their own textbooks, which detail exactly what you need to know and explain concepts in the appropriate depth. You should be able to get your hands on a copy from your school (ask your tutor) or even at your local library.
