Lesson Plan in Grade 9 Science
Date: February 9, 2015 (Aluminum, Yttrium, Chlorine); February 10, 2015
Unit 3: Force, Motion, and Energy
Subunit 1: Forces and Motion
Lesson No. 9
I. Targets: Given the necessary materials, at least 75% of the students should be
able to:
1. analyze and solve problems on the motion of a projectile launched at an angle
from the horizontal .
II. Learning Task:
A. Topic: Projectile Motion Projection at an Angle from the Horizontal 2
Subtopic: Kinematics Equations on Projectile Motion
B. Concepts:
Real-world problems on the motion of a projectile launched at an angle from
the horizontal are solved using a special set of kinematics equations. Each
equation ultimately quantifies a particular parameter of projectile motion, both
its horizontal and vertical components, provided that other relevant
parameters are identified.
These kinematics equations establish the relationships between and among the
quantities displacement, velocity, and time.
C. Skills:
Analyzing and solving word problems on the motion of a projectile launched
at an angle from the horizontal using relevant mathematical equations
Manipulating mathematical variables, deriving equations for projectile
D. Interdisciplinary Integration:
Mathematics students manipulate variables algebraically and use equations
to solve projectile motion problems
E. Materials Needed:
Recall: golf ball, chalkboard
Lesson Proper: chalkboard, problem set on projectile motion
Generalization: chalkboard
Evaluation: completed students outputs (worked solutions of the problem

III. Teaching Strategies:
A. Daily Routine: opening prayer, classroom cleanliness and attendance checking
B. Recall:
Recall the conceptual background on the motion of a projectile launched
at an angle from the horizontal, focusing on:
a. constant horizontal velocity;
b. changing vertical velocity through the parabolic trajectory;
c. maximum height reached;
d. ranged covered; and
e. time of flight.
Verify further students understanding and/or misconceptions by asking
them to cite other real-life examples of projectiles launched at an angle
from the horizontal.
C. Lesson Proper:
1. Introduce and give the general instructions in performing the activity to the
Activity Proper:
1. Introduce the kinematics equations for the motion of a projectile launched at 0
from the horizontal to the class.

2. Describe briefly each variable in the equations by referring to the following


3. Discuss briefly each of the following sample problems on projectile motion.

Sample Problems:
(1) A soccer ball is kicked at ground level with a speed of 20 m/s at an angle of
45 to the horizontal. How much later does it hit the ground?
(2) A long jumper leaves the ground with an initial velocity of 12.0 m/s at an
angle of 28 above the horizontal. Determine the (a) time of fl ight,
(b) horizontal distance/range covered, and the (c) peak height of
the long jumper.
4. Ask the students to solve the following problems.
Problem Set:
(1) The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 1.67 m/s 2. Suppose a
football player kicks a football with an initial velocity of 20.0 m/s at 37
above the horizontal, (a) what maximum height will the football reach? (b)
how far will the football land?
(2) A stone is launched from the ground into the air at an angle of 38 toward
the vertical brick wall that is 15.0 m horizontally away from the launch

point. If the stone takes 1.3 s to collide with the wall, with what speed was
the stone launched?
Discuss the analyses and solutions of students to each of the seatwork problems


Summarize the key points covered in the lesson, focusing on the (1) strategy
in solving projectile motion problems and (2) choice of the appropriate
kinematics equation(s).
To be based on students activity outputs (worked solutions of the problem
