Unit 3 is an continuation into our look at motion.  Projectile motion is different from what we have studied so far in that it is two dimensional motion happening at the same time.  We will have to separate the motion into its horizontal and vertical components.  This means that we will be using some trigonometry again. This is an important topic as practically all of the relationships we will study are described with a formula. 

Table Code:  Many of the animations for this course are taken from Kahn Academy which is a science based tutorial.   These will be coded by KH.  Another series that will be used is The Physics Classroom which will be coded PC.
