Your Physics students will love learning about projectile motion with the help of these doodle notes. Students will be able to identify features of the parabolic motion, label a parabola with key features like maximum height of a projectile, and solve three different types of problems. Two pages are notes about the motion and its features, six notes give the students opportunities to learn about different types of launches (level ground, unlevel ground with initial vertical velocity = 0, and unlevel ground with non-zero initial vertical velocity). My answer keys are suggestions based on my class needs, annotate notes your way to suit your curriculum needs.
This note delves into the mathematics behind projectile motion. Students will require trig identities and the quadratic formula. For a simpler version, please see Projectile Motion Doodle Notes for PHYSICS
This resource is included in my Kinematics and Motion Doodle Note Bundle
and my amazing, cost-saving Physics Bundle.
This ZIP file includes:
★ 8 Doodle Notes, with suggested answer keys
★ 8 Doodle Note Anchor Charts, sized at 24”x36” (Print at copy center as “engineering prints”)
★ Tips on printing and laminating the anchor charts
All files are PDF.
I have used ALL of the notes from the Kinematics and Motion Doodle Note Bundle
with my Physics classes over the past year. The students and I really prefer this method to traditional note-taking. Physics students often struggle with concepts because they focus on the mathematical side of things. Doodle notes provide an opportunity to look at relationships in multiple ways, while activating both sides of the brain through the creative doodling, annotating and coloring. Doodle notes have been shown to:
★ increases retention
★ activate the whole brain, the logical left side and the creative right side.
★ improve focus, people who doodle recall more than those who daydream
★ calm students and reduces stress
★ add novelty to the class, which in turn helps to engage students
