Mechanics ReView– Prof. Dave Pritchard
Start: Jan 11, Monday
End: Jan 29, Friday

Building on Newtonian Mechanics at the 8.01 level, we will offer a unified view of how to solve real world mechanics problems that involve several concepts at once. We will emphasize several themes: modeling reality, making sense of the answer, approximations/estimation, how to approach problems and decompose them into simpler pieces, and a teacher-authored and student-modified WIKI on problem solving using models.

Limited enrollment – sign up by 12:00 noon Thursday Jan. 7
