"The principle of science, the definition almost, is the following: The test of all knowledge is experiment . . . But what is the source of knowledge? Where do the laws that are to be tested come from? Experiment, itself, helps to produce these laws, in the sense that it gives us hints. But also needed is imagination to create from these hints the great generalizations; to guess at the wonderful, simple, but very strange patterns beneath them all, and then to experiment to check again whether we have made the right guess."
. . . Richard Feynman

Here is the Final Review Powerpoint shown in lecture on 12/11.
End of Semester and Final Exam preparation
Wednesday 12/12: Last Day of classes: Recitations are cancelled.
Pre-finals Help Session at the MSLC are in ARC 326 on Monday 12/17 from 10 AM - 6 PM and Tuesday 12/18 10 AM - 2 PM
Here is final exam information.
UPDATED: Here you will find practice exams and their solutions from the past three years.
This is the supplemental reading on projectile motion which provides extra help on projectile motion problem solving.
HOW TO LEARN FROM THE TEXT: There are many examples to work through in the textbook, and you are expected to be working through them as part of your reading assignment. You will not be tested on all of the Guided Review, but doing them is an excellent way to be studying for this course. To encourage you, I have posted the answers to most of the questions. The idea is to work hard at doing them on your own, and once you are confident about your answer, then compare your work to the solutions. Reading solutions without the struggle will not teach you anything, and will not prepare you for the exams.

Here is the equation sheet that you will be permitted to use during the exams. Try to familiarize yourself with it BEFORE THE EXAMS by using it during Summary Problems instead of your book.
Check your grades in the Gradebook. Please contact your TA if there are any errors.
The simulations that we use in class can be found at the University of Colorado PhET page. We'll use: Moving Man, Vector Addition, Ramp Forces and Motion, and Energy Skate Park: Basics. You can either run them from their website, or you can download them and run them from your own computer.
