Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles

Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles is a Concept Builder that takes a numerical approach to the trajectory of a projectile. There are three Activities in this Concept Builder, leaving learners do three different things. First, they do comparisons of the horizontal and vertical speed of a projectile for three different locations along its trajectory. Second, learners must identify the proper vector diagram for a projectile at three locations along its trajectory if given the appearance of the vector diagram at a fourth location. Finally, learners must identify the numerical value of the horizontal and vertical component of a projectile's velocity at 1-second intervals of time. There are multiple questions in each Activity. Student progress through each Activity is denoted using a system of Stars. Question-specific help is provided. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
