iMecaProf and Basic Mechanics


Is iMecaProf really relevant when looking at a course on Basic Mechanics. 


These courses are usually taught everywhere to freshmen. What is taught is essentially the same everywhere. 


Let’s use the MIT Opencourseware as a reference: 


Below are identified below parts of the course that can benefit from the use of the iPhone4 and possibly others smartphones when taugth.

A typical course in Classical Mechanics  is

Mathematics: The Language of Science

» 3. Cartesian Coordinates and Vectors

Translational Kinematics

» 4. One-Dimensional Kinematics and Free Fall

» 5. One-Dimensional Kinematics: Non-Constant Acceleration

» 6. Two-Dimensional Kinematics

» 7. Concept of Force

» 8. Application of Newton's Second Law

Circular Motion
