Planet Impact - Gravity

A primary objective of this lesson is to allow students to investigate the effects of gravity on a comet's trajectory by changing the angle of approach, the speed, and the masses of the large and small bodies. In the assessment activities, students will use their knowledge to crash a comet into Jupiter or make a comet fly past the planet without colliding with it. Students can work through "Planet Impact!" independently or in groups. The lesson is designed to be user-friendly for all levels of computer accessibility. Teachers Notes and Lesson Plans are available as well as a selection of downloadable resources.
