These are all great questions! We all want to have fun, do well, and be safe in any activity in which we participate. Many sports, hobbies, interests, and activities rely heavily on the principles of momentum and impulse to guarantee safety. To flesh out our study of momentum, we are going to focus in on some applications as they apply to YOUR sports, hobbies, interests, and activities. You will be completing several preliminary tasks, including some research, some practice problems, and some online simulations in order to prepare you for the final task, which will be a detailed analysis of a physical activity of your choice! Task #1: Momentum
Download the Task #1 Answer Sheet at the bottom of this page. You may also create your own blank document if you prefer. However, you do need to ensure that the numbers of the questions match between this site and you answers.
Save it to your USB drive or your own school server folder (somewhere you can access it again easily). You will be answering questions INDIVIDUALLY as you go through these activities.
Open the Task #1 Questions document from the bottom of this page. DO NOT TYPE THE QUESTIONS INTO YOUR ANSWER DOCUMENT.
Using one or more of the following sites, answer the questions in Section A and B:
When you have completed sections A and B, take your answers to #1-11 to your instructor. One of the questions will be selected and you will be asked to clearly explain your answer.

We're ready to move on to Section C! Open the following simulation to answer the questions in Section C:
When you have completed Task #1, take some time to discuss your answers with your group members. If you and your neighbors disagree with anything, make sure you work until you determine who has the correct/most complete answer before you move on. Then check in with your instructor to have your progress recorded.
If you have extra time, begin our WebAssign assignment related to momentum and it’s conservation: "Momentum and Conservation of Momentum."
