A full day of school today, and with taking a test on 2D projectile motion yesterday starting a new topic last period wasn’t going to be the wisest of choices. So Trinket.io hour of code to the (lesson plan) rescue.
Hope everyone has a happy, safe, and restful vacation.

they checked their work using this program I wrote for them using trinket.io in Python
