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

#### 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

#### 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.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Space Shuttle Launch Trajectory-I

In this space shuttle launch activity, students are given 2 equations used to determine the space shuttle's trajectory in the first 5 minutes of a launch. Students use these equations to solve 3 problems including finding the shuttle's...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Kinematics Along with Work/Energy

In this kinematics, work and energy worksheet, students solve 16 problems given a diagram of a moving ball that has been launched. Students find the trajectory of the ball, the velocity of the ball and its potential and kinetic energy at...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Physics Lab Rockets

Students construct and test balloon rockets and a model rocket. In this rocket science instructional activity, students use an inquiry-based method to master balloon rockets and have a shoot-off with the goal of attaining the highest...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### General Launch WS II

In this launch activity, students calculate the speed of moving objects given angles above the horizontal and their time. They also calculate trajectories, magnitudes and direction of moving objects.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Navigating a Spacecraft

Students work with a partner to plot the trajectory of a spacecraft traveling between Earth and Mars in the 2018 and returning in 2020. They examine the key factors when planning a mission to and from Mars such as travel time, distances...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### TE Activity: A Roundabout Way to Mars

Students investigate Hohmann orbit transfers using cardboard and string while focusing on the orbits of Earth and Mars. They look at the planets orbits around the sun and transfer orbit form one planet to another to determine what a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Parabolas in Flight

Students utilize a trajectory formula in order to discover the physics of a thrown ball. In this physics lesson, students videotape the trajectory of a thrown ball or basketball shot and analyze the action by breaking the video down...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Aircraft Trajectory Problem Set

Students read text from a NASA Web-based textbook then demonstrate an understanding of the text by using it to complete an activity on aircraft trajectories.
