## EDU5170 Lesson Plan

ISTE Standards: 1. Creativity and Innovation-Students will use a computer simulation to explore projectile motion 2.Communication and Collaboration-Students will communicate with the teacher through EdModo. 4. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making-Students will use these criteria to complete the quiz in this lesson. 5. Digital Citizenship-Students will participate in the online forum in a positive and constructive manner through EdModo and PHET. 6. Technology Operations and Concepts-Students will proficiently use technology to complete the activities and learn the subject matter. NYS Standards: 1. Analysis, Inquiry, and Design-Students will use the given equation and simulations to solve quantitative and qualitative problems. 2. Information Systems-Students will use EdModo to access and submit their findings. They will use Excel to interpret the numerical results of a problem. 4. Science-Students will use and explore the concept of projectile motion through activities and interactive simulations. 6. Interconnectedness: Common Themes-Students will understand that math, science, and technology can be used in combination to solve a physics problem. 7. Interdisciplinary Problem Solving-Students will see how math, science, and technology can be used in conjunction with each other to solve everyday problems.

Lesson Objectives: Students will become familiar with projectile motion through the range equation. The student will be able to describe the effect of launch angle, initial velocity, and mass on the trajectory of a projectile. Learning Activity Students will be reviewing the Range Equation webpage on my website. This should only take a minute or so and will provide an introduction to todays topic and the equation that they will be learning about. Students are then to log onto my EdModo page using the code provided on the Range Equation webpage. There is an Excel spreadsheet titled Projectile Motion that they are to open. I expect the students to use the information in the Excel spreadsheet to create a graph showing the trajectory of a projectile. The students are allowed to ask for help and help each other during this section of the lesson. Students should be able to complete the graph and label it entirely in 5 minutes or less.
