Title A Projectile Motion-Introduction (Inquiry Based)
Description The students will use the simulation to learn the goals through an inquiry approach. Learning Goal: Students will be able to: Predict how varying initial conditions effect a projectile path, Use reasoning to explain the predictions, Explain projectile motion terms in their own words, and Describe why using the simulation is a good method for studying projectiles.
