Product Description
This is a tremendous opportunity to integrate subjects in an Algebra 2 or PreCalculus classroom. Hands-on STEM based learning for hands-on student. Along using quadratic functions skills to solve projectile motion physics problems, students will engage in reflective writing and construction and design.

In this 25 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use in collecting data and an optional follow-up inquiry.

Of course I did not invent the idea of the Catapult Project, but I have extended it into my Algebra 2 / Pre-Calculus classroom.

Download the Preview to see everything that is included (besides the answers!)

-- In “Weapons Test”, students begin practicing using quadratic equations to model position functions. Students will determine which of the 6 functions has a path that goes over a castle wall. Determining the vertex is an important skill that they must practice.

-- In “Incoming”, students use the Kinematic Projectile Motion Formulas. A reference sheet to describe the variables is included and careful explanation of these are suggested.

-- and finally in “Quadratic Catapult”, students will design and build their own catapult device for a competition.
