#### Projectile Motion and Quadratic Functions

Model the flight of a ball. Small groups collect time data for how long it takes to toss a ball between two people. The teacher leads a discussion about projectile motion to get the class thinking about how to calculate the equation of...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectiles: Target Practice

Angry Birds prepared them, but now pupils must prove their skills with projectiles! Scholars test different variables to determine which ones impact the distance the projectile flies. The experiment provides connections to kinetic and...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile Motion

Have you ever wanted to shoot someone out of a canon? This simulation gives you that chance! In addition to a human, you can shoot a car, a piano, a cannon ball, and many other items. Scholars set the angle, initial speed, mass, air...

Lesson Planet

#### Exploring Projectile Motion

Live action Angry Birds is sure to be a popular STEM lesson plan. Young physicists differentiate between potential and kinetic energy, calculate speed based on distance and time, create graphs, and design and complete their own...

Lesson Planet

#### Free-Body Diagram

Preparing for an AP test is about more than bubble sheets and memorization. The two activities in this resource require a direct application of skills learned throughout an AP Physics course.

Lesson Planet

#### Physics Skill and Practice Worksheets

Stop wasting energy searching for physics resources, this comprehensive collection of worksheets has you covered. Starting with introductions to the scientific method, dimensional analysis, and graphing data, these skills practice...

Lesson Planet

#### Figure Skating Physics—Science of the Winter Olympic Games

Learn about the center of mass and projectiles by examining the movement of Olympic figure skaters! Physics and skating fans will be delighted as they watch super athletes perform unbelievable feats. Arrows and text appear to highlight...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile Motion

A unique and useful presentation, this covers projectile motion for your general physics class. Many graphs display the vectors involved, and some even act as animations. Motion is broken down into its components and only then are the...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile Motion Lab

Employing their knowledge of projectile motion, physics masters form a hypothesis about how far a metal ball will fly after rolling down a ramp and off of a tabletop. Their goal is to predict correctly and catch the ball at the right...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile Motion Review

Launching Fluffy, the Wonder Hamster, in a catapult might not be humane, but imagining the action to analyze projectile motion should be acceptable. This physics resource injects a little silliness, yet is quite serious about assessing...

Lesson Planet

#### Projectile Motion

Here is a rare gem for physics teachers! An engaging collection of slides opens with a question about aiming a slingshot at a monkey as it lets go of the branch from which it hangs. Projectile motion concepts are presented with graphics,...

Lesson Planet

#### Qualitative Examples of Conservation of Mechanical Energy

Instructions for series of six activites, a reading of scientific literature, and a choice of six assessments await you in this physics resource. Well-written plans guide you in guiding your pupils to experiment with levers, pulleys,...

Lesson Planet

#### Motion in Two Dimensions

Two activities employ the use of kinematic equations for determining projectile ranges. They both require the use of a toy dart gun. Included in this resource are both the teacher's guide and student laboratory sheets. This is an...

#### Regents High School Examination - Physics 2010

Give every type of learner in your physics class an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the year. From analyzing tables and graphs, to evaluating diagrams and solving problems, there is an outstanding variety of...

Lesson Planet

#### How to Calculate and Analyze the Equation for a Parabolic Path

Working in groups, pupils plot three points on the coordinate plane representing three different parabolic paths. Using a calculator, they determine the quadratic regression equation for their models. Each team then figures out the...

Lesson Planet

#### Throwing a Football

Use mathematics to help the football team. Pairs brainstorm how to approach finding a solution to a problem to help the quarterback complete more passes. By researching and collecting data, the teams derive an equation to represent the...

Lesson Planet

#### How High Can You Throw?

Find heights by measuring time. Teams collect data to determine the height that a tennis ball is thrown. Classmates measure the height of the initial release of the ball and how long it stays aloft. Using a projectile motion equation,...

Lesson Planet

#### Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles

Horizontal and vertical speeds change as projectiles move through space. As part of a series on vectors and projectiles, scholars create vector diagrams to compare these speeds at various locations. They they determine the values for...

Lesson Planet

#### Leap the Jeep

Will harm come to the child in the video? Find out by modeling the scenario mathematically! Learners represent the situation with a quadratic model before deciding on a maximum height and time the person is in the air. Too low or not...

Lesson Planet

#### Blob Jump

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In the case of the blob, that reaction is a trip several feet in the air! Learners begin by watching the world-record blob jump. They then analyze the flight of the person using...

Lesson Planet

#### Small Trebuchet

Travel back to medieval time where learning is just a stone's throw away! A video introduction shows a trebuchet (catapult-like machine) as it launches a rock into a lake. Learners use their quadratic modeling skills to predict the...
