Lesson Plans
Week of 11/2-11/6
Day 1
Essential Question: How can I predict where something will land?
Learning Objective: Use graphical methods to determine a vector
State Standard:
SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the
motion of objects.
f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by
using component vectors.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Bellringer: Answer a Kahoot relating types of vectors
Activator:
Begin the “Conquest of the Seas” activity (also known as “Vector Battleship”
Summarizer: Students should be able to explain how a (x,y) coordinate is related to a polar coordinate
Differentiation: Small group work in determining vectors; Visual is the PowerPoint Notes
Day 2
Essential Question: How can I tell where something will land?
Learning Objective: Use graphical methods to determine a vector
State Standard:
SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the
motion of objects.
f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by
using component vectors.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Bellringer: Given the x- and y- component of a vector, determine the magnitude of the resultant
Activator:
Complete “Conquest of the sea” activity
Students will learn how to take component vectors to make a resultant vector
Summarizer: Students should be able to determine a resultant vector
Differentiation: Group work
Day 3
Essential Question: How can I tell where something will land?
Learning Objective: Use kinematic equations to evaluate 2D motion
State Standard:
SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the
motion of objects.
f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by
using component vectors.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Bellringer: Given a vector, determine the x- and y-components
Activator:
Students will learn how to use vector components to determine the magnitude and direction of
the resultant vector.
Students will then work on 2 worksheets related.

motion of objects.
f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by
using component vectors.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Bellringer: Answer a question involving using x- and y-components to determine resultant vector
angle
Activator: Class will discuss the classic physics thought experiment involving shooting at a
hanging monkey
Student volunteers will conduct a demonstration showing a moving object and a stationary
object leaving a surface and falling to the ground.
Students will then learn about how to solve projectile motion questions.
Students will work on the worksheet: Projectiles fired horizontally
Summarizer: Students should be able to describe the path an object takes when launched with
horizontally
Differentiation: Class discussion, demonstration, seat work
Day 5
Essential Question: How can I tell where something will land?
Learning Objective: Use kinematic equations to evaluate 2D motion
State Standard:
