Success in the portion of our class covering an Introduction
to Newton's Laws of Motion is determined by your being able
to accomplish the tasks listed below.  The major objectives are
listed by number.  The list under each major objective includes
both subtopics of that objective (usually topics which are
required for a complete understanding of that major objective)
and also the multiple representations of the task in which you
are expected to be proficient.

1. Understand and apply Newton's Third Law.
Recognize when equal and opposite forces are, and are not,
Third-Law partners.
Identify the Third-Law partners in any system of particles.

2. Understand and apply Newton's Second Law in situations of
forces which are constant over time
Newton's First Law
Limits of applicability (inertial frames of reference)
Understand the nature of contact forces between unattached
surfaces (both normal and frictional components)
Understand the nature of pulling forces at points of
attachment for strings, rods, chains, etc. (tension forces)
Apply knowledge of kinematics to the acceleration side
of the Second Law.
Apply knowledge of vector addition to the sum-of-forces
side of the Second Law.
Free-body diagrams and extended free-body diagrams
Rotating coordinate systems for convenience
Motion on slopes
Pulleys (frictionless and massless so far)
Working outside of accelerated frames of reference
(e.g. accelerated elevator cars in two dimensions)
Systems of objects (each treated as a particle) moving as
a unit in some manner (moving as a unit only at this point)

3. Apply the Second Law to cases for which the coefficients
of friction between various pairs of surfaces are known
or can be determined.
Understand the definitions of coefficients of friction,
and the experiments from which those coefficients are
determined
All the subtopics of item 2 also apply here
Systems of objects (each treated as a particle) either
moving as a unit in some manner, or not (i.e. slipping).

4. When forces are changing with time, apply Newton's Second
Law at particular instants of time when either some forces
and/or the acceleration is knowable.
Horizontal circular motion
Vertical circular motion
All the subtopics of items 2 and 3 also apply here
