Projectile Motion - SENIOR PHYSICS - This physics lesson package covers projectile motion when velocity initial equals zero and when it doesn't equal zero. It also overviews what projectiles are, how they are impacted by gravity, and includes many example questions with fully worked answers. It is geared towards students who are in high school senior physics.

This package includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation), fully worked practice questions, and a student lesson handout as a document. The presentation is fun and applicable with many opportunities for inquiry-based learning and discussion.

In order, the lesson covers:

  • Projectiles
  • Components of motion
  • Types of projectiles
  • Gravity and projectiles
  • Projectiles with Vi = 0
  • Practice
  • Projectiles with Vi not = 0
  • Practice

Included in the lesson package is:

  • The teacher version of the presentation
  • The student version of the presentation
  • Student lesson handout
  • Student homework questions with fully worked answers


Google and Distance Learning Ready

  • This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

This lesson is part of my Motion and Force Senior Physics Unit which includes the following lessons plus many activities, assessments, etc.

  1. Speed and Velocity in One and Two Dimensions
  2. Acceleration in One and Two Dimensions
  3. Acceleration due to Gravity
  4. Projectile Motion
  5. Frames of Reference
  6. Forces and Free-Body Diagrams
  7. Newton's Laws of Motion
  8. Exploring Frictional Forces
  9. Circular Motion
  10. Universal Gravitation
