Collection of Freshman Physics Labs

These are a series of python lab worksheets I wrote for my freshman lab students (either calculus or non-calculus based courses would be fine). There are five labs in total, and each is designed to complement a standard two hour lab period. I did not include the actual labs, but we run pretty standard labs with pretty standard Vernier lab equipment.
I used modified the curve fitting algorithms from:
Title: Curve Fitting (PICUP Code Library)
Author: Eric Ayars
Code version: Published in the PICUP Collection, August 2016.
I also modified the code from:
Title: Projectile Motion: Experiment and Computational Model(PICUP Code Library).
Author: Todd Zimmerman
Code version: Published in the PICUP Collection, July 2016
Finally, I'd like to thank my colleague Carl Ferkinhoff at Winona State University, for the template to make pretty Jupyter worksheets with a nice table of contents.
