Concept Checker for Projectile Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Projectile Simulator consists of 24 questions organized into 6 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker. The simulation is a multi-faceted simulation; this particular Concept Checker is restricted to horizontally-launched projectiles.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Projectile simulator. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to describe the horizontal and vertical components of the velocity and the acceleration of a projectile.
  • The student be able to identify the effect that a varying horizontal launch speed has upon the horizontal displacement and the time to fall.
