It IS Rocket Science

Mufti day doesn’t get in the way of science at the Chalfonts. In classic IB interdisciplinary style, MYP3 took their knowledge from their trigonometry in Mathematics, and applied it to determining the apogee of rockets in Physics, part of an investigation into Newton’s laws.

The factors affecting the achievable apogee of a rocket under different conditions put Newton’s laws and trigonomety together into an engaging, real world scenario, developing good scientific technique, whether controlling variables, accurately collecting and processing data, working as a team to test the validity of their hypotheses.

It’s also really good fun!
