    LHS: s, distance, has units of length L.

    RHS: ut = velocity*time has units of (L/T)(T) = L,

    and ½at² = ½ * acceleration * time² has units of (L/T²)(T²) = L.

    Therefore the equation is homogeneous.

    Homogeneity and isotropy are wrt space co-ordinates. In your case you have time. Therefore, the equation is neither homogeneous or isotropic.
