Day 7 - PHYS 201

Today in Physics 201 the 8:00am section finished up the TST activities and then did some nTIPERs related to the 1-D motion.

In the 10:00am section we looked at python for the first time.  I stole material from Rhett Allain's introduction to coding - starting with the class looking at constant velocity and constant acceleration motion.  We used, which I think I'm going to stick with as long as possible.  Here's the code we started with:

One note - there was a bit of trouble running the code on the classroom laptops. I'm not sure if it is becuase we use Internet Explorer or because I chose to use GlowScript instead of straight python. I'll need to look at this more.
