Test corrections are due at the beginning of class on Friday- NO EXCEPTIONS.

Since you won’t have a chance to earn correction points on the final, I wanted to give you the opportunity to earn some points another way. On Friday we will take the diagnostic quiz which we did at the beginning of the semester. For every question you get right on that quiz, I will add a point to your final score. This is meant not only to help you earn some points, but also encourage you to avoid last minute cramming for the final. The quiz covers most of what we’ve discussed this semester- kinematics, forces, Newton’s Laws, conservation off momentum, etc.


The next few days are our grand finale of the semester. Here we combine nearly everything we have studied- Newton’s Laws, circular motion, conservation laws and gravity. With all of these tools we can now explain the motion of the planets and other astronomical bodies. No small feat!
