* Students will use the Euler or Euler-Cromer method (see instructor's guide) to create an animation of projectile motion to see how the motion depends on initial conditions (Exercise 1) * Students will compare analytical results to the results of computation and use this to hit a target with a projectile (Exercise 2) * Students will generalize the derivation of the range calculation to cases where the target is not at the same height as the launch height of the projectile (Exercise 3)
