and Projectile Motion
This four-part activity uses parametric equations to simulate horizontal
motion, vertical motion, and more general projectile motion. These simulations
include conditions of no gravity and gravity, and no drag and drag.
Mathematics Topics: Mathematics topics addressed include linear,
quadratic, and exponential equations and graphs, parametric equations,
real-world simulation, and
Students will generate algebraic
and parametric equations, and interpret
and compare various graphs.
Graphing calculator features include Cartesian
and parametric graphs, and tracing
and generating tables, and calculating
