On The Written Homework The purpose of the written homework problems is to show me examples of how you think. You can get the right number in CAPA without having a clue how to actually work the problem and when the test comes around you won’t be very happy with the outcome. You can’t show me how you think by writting down a bunch of equations and things like x q = 57.6 furlongs ê fortnight. Your goal (and the way you get credit for the problem) is to give me a reasoned argument that should convince me that your answer is correct. Look at the example problems I put on the website, look at the solutions to the battleship problem and the jumping problem that I’ve emailed to everyone. Your answers should look like those. Do not just write down (1) h top = 1 2 gt 2 write down “But this is free fall and at the top, the velocity is zero, so for the segment of the curve from the top down to h top below that, (2) x - x 0 = v 0 t + 1 2 at 2 implies that - h top = 0 t - 1 2 gt 2
