"Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think." -- Neil deGrasse Tyson

Lecture is a conversation. It is boring otherwise. I encourage all students to be active, ask questions and argue your point. I also encourage (and give extra points) for study groups. Students learn from their peers much better then from any instructor. I am here to help you to learn! It is fun!

Math is fun! This class requires the knowledge of the vector algebra. I do explain all the math, which is needed for understanding physics, but you will do yourself a big favor if you refresh your memory on the subject. Besides, forces, acceleration, and velocities are all vectors, they have directions. It matters where you going, to the left or to the right.
