Projectile Motion Animation

A screenshot of the Projectile Motion animation and 
simulation made by the University of Colorado. 
Projectile motion is one of the many fun topics in Physics. With projectile motion, you can let your students play volleyball, throw and drop coins, make parachutes for an egg and many more. You can even let them fire cannons!

Well, yeah, many schools would not allow cannons to be fired by their students. But you can do it with an animation, a simulation of projectiles.

When I first taught Physics for STI College Ormoc, I found the use of this animated simulation of projectiles like cannon balls, cars, baseballs or golf balls relevant to my students' course. They were after all, IT students.

However, when I reached this topic in my High School teaching in Western Leyte College, it's not that hard to immerse the students in the topic projectile motion by using this animation as one of my tools or materials. In fact, they were very interested to learn about the topic.

The times are surely changing. Show your students something that involves innovative technology and their interests are jump-started immediately!

Hence, for my fellow teachers and Physics enthusiasts out there, grab a copy of this animation and have fun firing cannons at different angles, with different air resistance and even with different projectiles.

This animation can be obtained from the website of The University of Colorado.
