HyperPhysics is an educational website about physics topics. The information architecture of the website is based on HyperCard, the platform on which the material was originally developed,[1][2] and a thesaurus organization, with thousands of controlled links and usual trees organizing topics from general to specific. It also exploits concept maps to facilitate smooth navigation.[3] HyperPhysics is hosted by Georgia State University and authored by Georgia State faculty member Dr. Rod Nave.[4][5]

In the early 2000s, various teaching and education facilitators made use of HyperPhysics material through projects[6] and organizations,[7] and also publishers which use SciLinks.[8]
