##### Learning Objective:

We understand that the motion of projectiles is dependant on the angle from which it is fired and the force

##### Intended Outcome:

To provide a practical introduction to the motion of projectiles with a focus on angles. It is designed as a lead in to parabolic and quadratic functions

##### Game Objective:

To make a projectile launcher and use it to investigate trajectories

##### Materials:
• Launching Cannon (Instructions to make it are on the next page)
• Protractor
• Ping pong ball
• Markers
• Tape measure
• Ice cream tub
##### Instructions:
• Students get into groups of 3 or 4
• Using the Launching Cannon students will fire the ping pong ball at different angles
• Students will record the distances of 3 angle shots and then work out the average distance for each angle
• Once they have done this they can work out which angle travels the greatest distance
• After this is completed students can then have a go at hitting a target by trying to get the ball to land in an ice tub
