Projectile Motion

High schoolers determine the angle of launch that will give a projectile its greatest range. In this projectile motion lesson, students recognize that the motion of a projectile results from the combined horizontal and vertical velocities. They experiment to realize that the greater the angle of launch, the greater the vertical velocity.

I have really appreciated the connecting links to a variety of sources (i.e. National Geographic) and the teacher-tested lessons have been very helpful for me in planning my units. Thanks Lesson Planet!
