Instructional Ideas

  • Allow pupils to provide graphical explanations
  • Have individuals determine an equation that would allow the archer to remain in the same place but still clear the wall
Classroom Considerations

  • Individuals need to understand horizontal shifts

  • Includes a graphic that shows the set up, but does not give away the answers
  • Allows for part C to be an extension

  • None
