Projectile Motion

Students calculate the initial velocity of a stretched spring and use their calculations to predict where the spring will land. In this elastic energy lesson, students stretch and shoot a spring vertically and gather data to establish a relationship between height and stretch.  They use this data to calculate the initial velocity of the spring and apply the concepts to horizontal shooting of the spring.

Lesson Planet has helped me dramatically, giving me instant access to so many lessons, worksheets and rich ideas. It has helped me to continue to deliver high interest instruction to students with cross categorical special needs in high school inclusive settings, which is no simple matter. Due to the ease, quickness and richness of the materials on this site, my life as a first year teacher has been made infinitely better to say the least.
