5/4 -- Beginners Circle: Physics experiments first, taxicab geometry later. (Vitaly Kresin and Oleg Gleizer)

A USC physics professor and the father of one of our students, Vitaly Kresin, is going to show the class some cool experiments related to the Newtonian Laws of motion we studied at the end of the 2014 Winter quarter. Once he is finished, we will get back to the 15 puzzle and learn the last tool we need to unravel it, taxicab geometry.
