  Test corrections are due at the beginning of class on Friday- NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • To earn points, explanations of what was wrong (with the correct solution) needs to be provided.
  • If you scored lower than 75, you must discuss the test with me to earn the points.  Others are more than welcome to talk with me about the test, but arenít required.
  • You can earn up 25% of your missed points.

For Wednesday- read chapter 5, and work on the exercises.

If you wish to change your grading option for the dynamics unit (the default is whatever you chose for kinematics), you need to submit a new contract by Friday.


  • Look at several scenarios and discuss the eveidence for Newton's Laws.
  • Start defining terms such as force and mass.
