We will be learning how to use vectors to solve physics problems. Extending our range of motion from one-dimensional motion into two-dimensional motion brings us into the realm of projectile motion.

**Helpful Videos: **

- Vector Basics
- Vector Components
- Vector Addition (perpendicular vectors)
- Example – Projectile on Flat Ground
- Example – Projectile from High to Low

**Helpful Information:**

Motion in 2D (PhET) – A simulation showing two dimensional motion using vectors

Ladybug Motion 2D (PhET) – A simulation showing a ladybug moving in two dimensions using vectors

Projectile Motion (PhET) – A simulation of projectile motion. Allows you to calculate velocities and ranges and then launch a car to check your work.
