Diagnostic Quiz on Projectile Motion
Subtopics of Projectile Motion
ME-V1 Introduction to Vectors
The principal focus of this subtopic is to introduce the concept of vectors in two dimensions, use them to represent quantities with magnitude and direction, and understand that this representation can allow for the exploration of situations such as geometrical proofs.
Students develop an understanding of vector notations and how to manipulate vectors to allow geometrical situations to be explored further. The example of projectile motion as an application of vectors is then introduced. These concepts are explored further in the Mathematics Extension 2 course.
