Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rockets Educator Guide

The 17 resources in NASAâ€™s Rockets Educator Guide allow young scientists and engineers to engage in experiments as they examine images of more than 2,00 years of rockets. Scholars then read articles that provide an overview of the next...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Projectile Motion

A unique and useful presentation, this covers projectile motion for your general physics class. Many graphs display the vectors involved, and some even act as animations. Motion is broken down into its components and only then are the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Aerospace Engineering

Twelfth graders examine the physics of rocket flight. They build and launch model rockets to measure their performances.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Ace in the Hole

How does inertia affect an object's trajectory? After watching a video on safety belt use, pupils discuss the notions of inertia. Using their knowledge, individuals try to drop a ball on a target while running, and classmates observe the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### On Target

Crash into engineering by sending a marble to land on a target by way of a zip line. Using a zip line, pupils put engineering design processes into practice by modifying a cup to carry and release a marble onto a target. Scientists test,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Throwing a Football

Use mathematics to help the football team. Pairs brainstorm how to approach finding a solution to a problem to help the quarterback complete more passes. By researching and collecting data, the teams derive an equation to represent the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### How a Ball Falls

Discover the power of mathematical modeling using a hands-on activity. Participants collect data on the height, velocity, and time to model the height of a tossed ball over time. Collaborative groups toss a ball and use video analysis as...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Stomp Rockets

Watch the excitement grow as learners experiment with homemade rockets. Pupils create their own rockets from a soda bottle and experiment with launch angles. They discover the launch angle has a significant effect on the distance the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Walled-Up Parabolas

Jump at the chance to use parabolas. Young mathematicians apply trigonometry to explore the trajectory of a ball in different situations. Some walls cause the ball to bounce, so participants must consider all possibilities.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Planetary Rescue Squad

Ready, aim ... learn! Increase scholars' understanding of force, mass, distance, and angle using an engaging interactive. Pupils participate in a series of rescue missions where they launch supplies at a target with an adjustable cannon....

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles

Horizontal and vertical speeds change as projectiles move through space. As part of a series on vectors and projectiles, scholars create vector diagrams to compare these speeds at various locations. They they determine the values for...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Trajectory - Horizontally Launched Projectiles

Everyone enjoys projectiles, and predicting where they land helps with future hands-on labs. Incorporating gravity into horizontal trajectories through both conceptual and mathematical practice helps scholars understand real-life...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Catapult

Studying levers couldn't be more exciting! Learners build their own catapults and test the results as they make adjustments to the fulcrum. They compete against other groups to create the most accurate apparatus.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Medieval Archer

Class members determine the distance a video game character must move to shoot an arrow over a castle wall. Players determine the new equation to enter to represent the trajectory of the arrow and find all the distances the character can...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Foam Rocket

When going for distance, does it make a difference at what angle you launch the rocket? Teams of three launch foam rockets, varying the launch angle and determining how far they flew. After conducting the series of flights three times,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Desktop Catapult

This is bound to be the favorite lesson of the year for your physics class since they design desktop catapults. They can experiment with angles, weight, and trajectories. Instructions are provided for making the catapult out of a plastic...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Desktop Catapult

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Planet Impact!

An amazing information-packed lesson plan allows your space scientists to crash a virtual comet into Jupiter and learn how the angle, distance, speed, and mass influence the outcome. Click on "Back to the Lesson" to access the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Jump! An Exploration into Parametric Equations

Explore parametric equations in this lesson plan, and learn how to determine how much time it takes for an object to fall compared with an object being launched. high scoolers will use parametric equations to follow the path of objects...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Trajectory and Range of a Projectile

Young scholars investigate the factors affecting projectile trajectory. For this physics lesson, students calculate the range, time and speed of projectiles using mathematical equations.
