    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


    The study of physical phenomena by means of guided experimentation and experimental thinking, allow students to infer and understand the reason for the different variations that evidence. Parabolic motion of a projectile powered by a cannon under the spring mechanism, generates discussion regarding the choice of the proper angle, according to a certain distance, a known average initial velocity, and a given height. Give the blank is a great encouragement, however, being able to explain which conditions of the environment influenced the failed launches, generates a space of dialogue and a durable concrete learning.
