Conceptual Physics Week Ahead: 9/17-9/21

Alright guys we are rolling along. You did well on your Scientific Method test last week even though some of you thought it was hard. We will do test corrections on Wednesday, and on Thursday you will do corrections on your cricket lab report for me. I will have a sample for you to look over before you do your lab report corrections. This week we will also review Dimensional Analysis. Next week we will look at kinematics (velocity and acceleration)!
