L2: This block we'll begin the learning that is assessed by the mechanics external 91171. Students will use the kinematic equations of motion to describe motion in one and two dimensions; including projectile motion. They will investigate Newton's Laws of motion.

In 2.1 we'll look at energy and impulse applied to a system. The will calculate torque and establish the forces needed for torque balance.

L3: This block we'll begin the learning that is assessed by the mechanics external 91524. Students will investigate momenta in two dimensions, torques and gravity.

In 2.1 we'll look at angular motion and simple harmonic motion such as pendula, and springs.
