This is a set of resource materials for second-semester introductory physics, developed at the University of Virginia.  It would be appropriate curriculum material for AP physics or for students who have some preparation in the fundamentals of calculus.  The unifying theme of the course is applying Newton's Laws to a small segment of a large system to find laws governing the system as a whole.  Resources include complete lecture notes, demonstrations, links to related interactive simulations, problem sets/study sheets for students, and downloadable animated spreadsheets.  Physics 152 covers topics that include gravity, waves and oscillations, fluids, heat, and thermodynamics.

Please note that this resource requires Shockwave, or Flash.
