Look at a pinball table calculus in 4 dimensions, vectors, velocity, acceleration, direction, force, mass, gravity(special acceleration), Newtonian mechanics at its best.
Ball Vectors, Thumper Vectors, resultant vectors, friction,angles,springs,levers, elastic collisions, inelastic collisions. air pressure, etc. Kinetic energy, potential energy. wood type, coefficiant of heat expansion, bumper age hardness of rubber, you could go on and on.
