### Golf Range

UPDATED HTML5

Try to get a hole in one by adjusting the velocity and launch angle of a golf ball. Explore the physics of projectile motion in a frictional or ideal setting. Horizontal and vertical velocity vectors can be displayed, as well as the path of the ball. The height of the golfer and the force of gravity are also adjustable.

### User Lesson Materials (3):

• ##### Golf Range Projectiles at Angles Concepts

This has be broken down to focus on vecolity and acelleration vetors, along with angle manipulation results. No math. Students complete prior to class as part of their "flipped" classroom experience.

Designed For:  Physics

• ##### Golf Range Tournament

This activity has become a tradition in my classroom that the students look forward to at the end of the year! By the end of the activity my students actually believe they have the skills to get a hole-in-one...ahhhh, it should be that easy :)

Designed For:  Middle School Physical Science

• ##### Golf Range Lesson - Original Explorer Guide Format

This lesson uses the original Explorer Guide that has been reformatted to better break out the instructions from the questions and provides students space to make their answers.
