Test 1
Lab edit
Go over test?
Report longer than a half page.
Do assigned circuit
Make a quick circuit diagram.
Most important part: Document with greek letters.
Thursday:
 Group reports encouraged.
 You must do the assigned circuit, unless you choose to do no circuit.
 Most of the time, you can do a report on something else.
 Choices: Previous test or Area of a sphere using calculus.
These images illustrate the physics version of spherical coordinates on a globe (angular part only)]]

_____
 Answer without using calculus
 Do a first order approximation (whiskycigar w/o the cigar) and compare the answers.
 Can you define an intrinsic variable for the bent/wrinkled tape?
Set the radius at the freethrow be nominally R= 2m and let the tape width be W=4cm. Express all your equations using the symbols (R,W) in order to app

Start lab schedule edit
 Unless I change my mind, you are all allowed to do this lab by doing an assigned lab and the report. The only complication is that I might not have enough "traditional" labs for you to do. I might be forced to make you do one of my projects on one or two lab sessions.
 For that reason, I need a list of people who wish to do a project leading to a symposium poster.
 There is a shortage of people who want to do the Thursday late lab (4:255:20) due to a difficult class that follows. We will devote that timeslot to a project related to materials, and set aside time for study if you have an exam just after the test.
 I have two "engineering projects":
 Upside down goggles
 Gridiron pendulum: wikipedia:Gridiron pendulum and also Lake Campus Gridiron page
 My most exciting project is essentially a this technical writing problem. If this is successful (and it probably won't be), you could be a coauthor on a refereed journal article.
