Projectile Motion - Lesson Guide

Activity Overview

In this Science Nspired module, students will explore projectile motion through simulations, a data-collection lab, formative assessments and summative assessments.

This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishviewTM document.

About the Lesson

The students will expore the vectors, angles and flight path of a projectile in a simulation. They will use motion analysis to determine a flight path of a ball. Students will mark points on the flight of a ball where the angle will be known and find the equations of the path. They then will have to setup equipment to repeat the process to see if they can hit a target based on what they learned.
