AlgebraBased Handwritten Problems and Solutions
NOTE TO STUDENTS: I have included these problems on my website
because in many cases they include a more thourough solution to the
problems (i.e., more discussions, added comments, and pictures) then
my LaTeXed notes. That
said, they also contain more typos. They were written hastily under
long stints of little or no sleep in my first semester of teaching
physics. So read them at your own risk!
Newton's Laws
Applications of Newton's Laws (part 1)
Applications of Newton's Laws (part 2)
Applications of Newton's Laws (part 2  extended version)
Work and Mechanical Energy
Shear, Stress, Elasticity, and Simple Harmonic Motion
Sound

5. Lecture Notes
See my lecture notes on my webpage for university physics. Although
these are calcbased notes, there is very little calculus in them, and
where appropriate, there are algebrabased versions.
