Product Description
How do we use vector components to analyze motion of objects launched at an angle?
This question exploration explains how to resolve the force components of the initial thrust on a projectile to calculate its trajectory, range, height and time aloft.

Question Exploration Routines are instructional methods that teachers can use to help a diverse student population understand a body of content information by carefully answering a critical question to arrive at a main idea answer. Students taught using the content enhancement routines earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.

Personally, I use Concept Enhancement routines to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. I keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 2-3 page for the Question Exploration. This product includes the completed routines, and the student guide blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in.

These Concept Enhancement Routines have the following learning objectives and outcomes:
SWBAT apply properties of parabolas to projectile motion
SWBAT model projectile motion using polynomial functions
SWBAT use the computer simulation to solve problems of projectile motion and practice resolving vectors into component methods.

These Concept Enhancement Routines are classroom tested to help students with the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science:
SC.912.P.12.2 Analyze the motion of an object in terms of its position, velocity, and acceleration (with respect to a frame of reference) as functions of time.
SC.912.P.12.3 Interpret and apply Newton's three laws of motion.
