Students write their equation on their template then find: initial height, a good graphing calculator window, time to max height, max height, and total time in air. They also sketch and label their graphs.
An excellent inquiry project, something to introduce projectile motion, or just as a really cool activity in the classroom. Great for most ages. Full lab description available FREE, click to see. Credit - thehelpfulartteacher
Blast a Buick out of a cannon! Learn about projectile motion by firing various objects. Set the angle, initial speed, and mass. Add air resistance. Make a game out of this simulation by trying to hit a target.
