How can the laws and equations of Physics be applied to a runner on the track? or football player running down the field? or a hockey player skating & passing the puck?
In this project, students will study

kinematics (the what & how of motion) while analyzing the motion of MHS Hornet athletes, and then explain the motion in a series of videos entitled "The Science of MHS Hornets".
Students will explain the motion with graphs (made with Google Sheets or Excel) and equations. Students will ultimately explain kinematics through the lens of a student athlete (and make suggestions as to how to improve the times by applying kinematic analysis to the motion.)
