This 2-DAY, 30 slide Projectile Motion lesson package examines the Components of motion, Types of projectiles, Gravity and projectiles, Tackling projectile motion problem strategies as well, it looks at more difficult situations where the projectiles have a vertical component. There are many opportunities for students to test their knowledge through "Check Your Understanding" slides with the teacher version containing the answers. There is 1 simulation embedded in the PowerPoint. Simply start the slideshow and click the image and it will open in your browser. The PowerPoint contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint) and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
- The teacher version of the PowerPoint
- The student version of the PowerPoint
- 1 simulation embedded into the PowerPoint
- Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
- Components of motion
- Types of projectiles
- Gravity and projectiles
- Tackling projectile motion problems
- Projectiles with an upward vi
- Practice, Practice, Practice!
The student version of the PowerPoint 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.
