Paper rocket launches a product of physics, calculus, and student ingenuity
Students in the AP Physics (PACE) class designed and launched paper rockets as part of a class lesson. They considered design, weight, length, aerodynamics, and eventually the amount of air pressure needed to launch the rocket toward a target.
In the designing stage, students also had the opportunity to conduct a video analysis of their rocket and make adjustments.
PACE is a two-session class period combining physics and calculus, and is taught by Jeremy Scheffler.
