Students use a parametric plot to make a graph of the path of a projectile.
In this activity, students investigate how various characteristics of a projectile's initial motion affect its path. They begin by studying the characteristics of a simple projectile fired at an angle to the horizontal.
They create a parametric graph of the equations describing the projectile's horizontal and vertical motion.
Finally, they vary the initial conditions of the projectile's motion and observe the effects on its path.
