The applet is enjoyable for both the instructor and students, and it is useful
in a variety of mathematics and physics/physical science courses. I recommend it
highly!

Technical Remarks:

In the comments before the applet, there are two typos ? in #1, "starting" is
missing the 't', and in #2 "successfully" is missing the 'ly'.

Great fun, as well as educational! You can change all kinds of variables and see what it does to the trajectory of the cannon ball. Nice exercises as well!

Learn about parabola and ballistic motion. Tristan De Frondeville has written a paper describing his use of this applet in his classroom.
