This is the first part of the algebra-based (non-calculus) course sequence for a science majors. Newtonian mechanics is examined and applied to situations including gravitation, rotation and oscillations, with a focus on being able to apply a few general laws and definitions to a wide variety of novel situations. Experimental skills will be developed with an emphasis on the interpretation of data, such as the identification of patterns and uncertainties in the data and calculations and testing possible mechanisms consistent with those patterns.
