The conference for all 11-19 mathematics teachers

28 - 30 June 2018

Keele University

A level mechanics: Projectiles

Kevin Lord

14:15 - 15:15 Friday 29 June

A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics

This session is one of four that consider how mechanics in the linear A level progresses from year 1 (AS level) topics, extending kinematics in 1-dimension to motion under constant acceleration in 2-dimensions. There will be an opportunity to look at the key features of projectile motion, try out tasks and discuss how to introduce projectile motion to A level students. The session is ideal for teachers with experience of AS level mechanics who wish to prepare themselves to teach the mechanics content in the linear A level.
