Title Exploring Vectors and Projectile Motion
Description This is an inquiry based activity that's designed to introduce students to projectile motion, calculating time of flight, and exploring acceleration and velocity. It's designed to be similar to a "Gizmo" in providing students a chance to explore, make predictions and derive conclusions. It's the first iteration of the assignment, and will likely be modified as data rolls in on its effectiveness. It will last between 30-45 minutes.
