Using A Simulation to Test the Predicted Ranges of Angry Bird Launches

Unit 3: Projectile Motion
Lesson 5 of 16

Objective: Students will calculate the ranges of three angry bird launches and test their calculations for range using a projectile motion simulation.

Big Idea: The maximum range of a projectile corresponds to a 45 degree launch angle.
