### 講義概要

In this class you will be introduced to the foundations of classical mechanics. We will start with basic dynamics; work through Newton’s law; discuss collisions and energy conservation; acquaint ourselves with rotational motion; and finish up with Newtonian Gravity. You will also learn some of the mathematical techniques of importance to physics.

### 講義の目的

Now, as one of my professors used to say, “my duty is to help you learn and your duty is to learn.” So with that in mind, my plan is as follows. I’m going to cover the text, following the below schedule to the best of my ability. Your duties include studying the text and handouts, reading other texts as necessary, working with other in the class, doing homework, and taking exams. I assign lots of homework (in relative terms), and you should work together to complete it. However, what you submit must be in your own words and using your own ideas. My exams are challenging but doable; if you have done all the homework as well as worked through the problems in the textbook, you should be able to pass. However, you are expected to attend class and enshuu (and be prepared!) and to participate: One of your main duties is to ask questions. If you don’t come and don’t participate, you won’t be able to succeed. It’s your choice.
