Parallels Between Relativistic and Classical Dynamics for Introductory Courses
Fahnline, Donald E.
American Journal of Physics, 43, 6, 492-495, Jun 75
Rewriting the usual relativistic equations in equivalent forms can help students recognize the relation between classical and relativistic mechanics. The derivation of relativistic equations is facilitated by means of simple algebraic generalizations of proofs often used in teaching their classical analogs to students who have not studied calculus.
