Mechanics 2

As with Mechanics 1, the approach in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics book was one of guided modelling supported by practical work with the same expectations that, in each investigation students would:
*define the problem that you are going to investigate
*set up a mathematical model of the situation
*analyse the situation mathematically
*translate the solution into everyday language
*use the solution to make predictions
*validate the solution and model.
