This interactive video tutorial allows students to explore projectile motion. After making predictions about the horizontal and vertical motions of a ball, the student performs a video analysis of horizontal and then vertical motions to discover that in Projectile Motion an object undergoes two independent motions. The analysis illustrates the constant horizontal velocity and changing vertical velocity.

This vignette was studied and found to have a significant effect on learning. See Research Outcomes for details.
