I usually give a short lecture in class about this topic, but since we already touched on it – here is a link. Read if you like.
First, the scores weren’t so hot (for the most part). I guess you know that since I posted the scores on the moodle site.
Second – don’t wait to do a screencast. Do it now. Have some friends look it over (or even have some enemies look over it). Send it to me.
Third – I typically look at screencasts on Fridays. I will expect more from you on the screencast if you did poorly on the in-class assessment. If you scored really low, it will likely take more than one screencast to get the score you like.
If you don’t like my stuff on screencasts, here is someone else’s site with useful info.
These aren’t exactly the same as the gravitron, but still cool.
Here is an example where fake forces are useful
Just a reminder. I will be in the Pursley hall computer lab on Friday at 9:00 (room 109) if you need help with your vpython stuff or other physics stuff.
I said I would be in the computer lab (Pursley Hall room 109) on Friday at 9:00 AM. I will be there. If you need help getting started, this would be a great time. The computers there already have vpython on them – or maybe you would like to bring your own laptop. Whatever makes your boat float.
