** VECTORS AND KINEMATICS IN TWO-DIMENSIONS**

**ESTIMATED TIME: 1 WEEK**

**Reading Assignment: **

**Giancoli's 5/6e: Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6**

**Walker 2e: Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.5 and 3.6 and 4.1 through 4.5**

**Homework: **

**Giancoli's 5e, Ch. 3: 11, 20, 21, 24, 27, 28, 31, 35, 36, 43, 45, 49**

**Giancoli's 6e, Ch. 3: 10, 18, 19, 21, 23, 27, 30, 31, 32, 39, 41, 45**

**Walker 2e Ch. 3: 31, 33; Ch. 4: 5, 9, 13, 19, 21, 23, 25, 33, 34, 35**

**TEACHING RESOURCES:**

**- Dropped and Shot Balls**

**- Monkey and Hunter**

**- Relative Velocity **

**- Determination of Range, Angle Launch and Velocity**

**LAB 3. ****Projectile Motion**

**Objectives: ****To determine the initial velocity of a projectile and the angle **

**at which the maximum range can be attained.**

**Equipment: ****A projectile launcher and a meterstick.**

**Type of Lab:**** Open ended**

**- Graphical Analysis and Vectors **

**- Motion in Two Dimensions **

**- Relative Velocity**

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

**10 interactive problems with hints and detailed solutions.**

**- Multiple Choice Interactive **

**2 sets of 10 interactive problems with immediate feedback.**

**KEY ITEMS:**

**• The key to problems involving projectile motion is to treat the horizontal **

** motion and the vertical motion separately.**

**• There is no need for students to memorize the 'range' formula, it is much **

** better to have them practice deriving the equation. This helps the students **

** in being comfortable manipulating symbols rather than just numbers.**
