Projectile Motion and the Protractor: It’s all About the Angle

Student will be introduced and taught to use a protractor. Students will be asked to cipher angle measurements to demonstrate competency with the tool of measurement. They will be able to identify the angle that is already provided as well as construct a requested angle. Students will be introduced to the concept of force and a spring scale. Students will understand that the Newton is the unit of measurement of force and will be able to demonstrate different quantity of forces using the spring scale. Students will then apply their knowledge of angles of measurement and force to determine the optimal distance of horizontal travel given a set force and a varying angle. Student will be able to draw a conclusion as to the relationship between force and distance traveled at a constant force. Students will also be able infer real world applications that might be seen in everyday life.
