Goals

To understand the motion behind a projectile from a catapult or trebuchet

To comprehend the mathematics behind parabolas

To apply cosines and sines to aid in finding the initial velocity in both the x and ydirections
Objectives

Students will observe and describe the projectile motion of a catapult shot

Students will apply previous height and rate formulas to the catapult problem

Students will determine that gravity does not affect the velocity in the xdirection (horizontal direction)

Students will describe the graph of a projectile and accurately label its relevant parts

Students will determine the angle that will give the maximum distance to a projectile

Students will create a formula to predict the landing area of a catapult shot
