     Ever since Isaac Newton's publication of The Principia in 1686, humans have looked at the universe as a big machine.  In this unit you will learn the rules that govern the machine.  Exciting stuff! Please click the Unit 2C Mechanics Introduction in the workflow to begin.

Suggested timeframe: 3 weeks

Big Ideas:
1. Newton's Laws of Motion are used to analyze how force affects the state of motion of an object.
2. Motion is always measured relative to an arbitrary frame of reference.
3. All uniform circular motion requires a centripetal force.
