Assign the following problem:
If a US Olympian releases the discus at an angle of 32 degrees with a velocity of 85 ft/sec how far does it travel before it hits the ground?
Assign students the following tasks in groups of three –
1) As if you were competing in the shot put, push a tennis ball off your shoulder at an approximate angle of 30 degrees. One group member times from release of the ball until it hits the ground. Other group member measure this horizontal distance. Determine the ball's velocity.
2) Repeat this process at angles 60 and 45 degrees. Which angle provides optimal distance and why?Authentic Assessment: Math
