-  * [[..:..:activities:vfact:vfgauss|Gauss' Law]] (SGA) //90 min// - students solve for the electric field due to a charged sphere or an infinite cylinder. Emphasis is made on students making symmetry arguments (proof by contradiction) for using Gauss' Law.+  * Lecture - 20 min
+    * What is the difference between the line integral and the flux integral (given that both use the dot product)
+    * What does it mean for a field to be conservative?
+      * Path independent
+      * Corresponds to a surface (scalar field) that it is the gradient of
+      * //Is curl free// **Note:** Curl is needed for 3 different ideas in this class: Conservative Work, Going from $\vec A$ to $\vec B$, and getting from $\vec B$ to $\vec J$.
