"My overall goal is to get the students to use Newton's Laws, Conservation of Energy and Conservation of Momentum (and in the second year course, Conservation of Angular Momentum) to solve a great many problems... that is, I try to get them to see the parsimony of physics. I don't do this by teaching a "conceptual" course."

I have been humbled.

I am eager to see your finals, I couldn't find your email address in the profile. Mine is, thanks.
