Due today:

- standard-2nd order ODEs:
I can model a system with a second order differential equation.

- Model a parachute jump where an updraft occurs before opening the chute.
- 2.4.8 (archimedian principle and oscillations)
- Give both the full analytical solution and an Euler solution in Mathematica for problem 2.8.8.

- discussed how to use my gradebook (specifically how they see my feedback)
- decided to tackle the Archimedes problem
- had them draw shapes
- really broke down how buoyancy works
- had them predict the force vs displacement for different shapes

- tackled a damped/driven problem at the end.
- really hit hard the notion that the homogeneous solutions provide the flexibility to match the initial conditions

- Quiz on the parachute problem (fill out the first 2 rows of the spreadsheet for euler)
