This new physics application for Windows, Projectile Motion 1, was designed for students to practice problem solving, and for teachers to use it as a motivating teaching tool. The application has a unique and simple design. It presents random numerical problems for the students to solve without writing anything. All the projectiles are ejected horizontally. Some problems can be solved mentally, while others require the use of calculators. Most exercises take 30 seconds or less to solve. In addition, if a digital projector is used with the entire class, try pressing ALT-ENTER to use the full screen, for the text to appear larger on the screen.
The application shows several types of problems, and this is the way it works. By just pressing one key, the number 1, the application brings more problems of the same type. By pressing the number 2, the value of gravity is changed, and by pressing 3, a different type of problem can be selected. It is that simple. In a few minutes, the use of this application can be mastered. Nevertheless, it is important for the teacher to be alert, to work out the correct answer before pressing “1” for the computer to display the answer.
Again, this physics application is for computers using Windows 10 or newer.
