1. Describe horizontal projections and the kinematic assumptions they involve.

2. Resolve the horizontal and vertical components of projectile motion.

This packet contains concept definitions provided by my own students through Twitter and curated by me through Storify.com. Please go and check them out here: http://sfy.co/TP4 (Please feel free to follow them, they are truly amazing kids!)

It also includes a snapshot of our class taken by a student´s cellphone and emailed to my Flickr account as well as videos with developed problems.

Hope you enjoy!
