Today, we'll start with test corrections.  Then, we’ll first discuss what you learned about elastic and inelastic collisions in the video and then do a few problems.  Remember that momentum is conserved in all collisions, but energy is only conserved in elastic collisions.  

Then we'll do Page 2 in Momentum Packet (SOLUTIONS).  If you finish early, you can move on to page 3.
