Monster Island is a fun online Physics puzzle in the style of games like Angry Birds. This will develop your puzzle-solving skills while you think about the implication of physics concepts such as trajectories, force, velocity and gravity. There are many increasingly challenging levels to complete in this fun online game.
Instructions: You need to take out the enemy monsters by throwing mini-monsters at them. Think carefully about both the direction (the trajectory) and the strength you will throw it (the force).
Learning objective: To develop an awareness of the Physics term ‘Force’.
(i) What does the term ‘force’ mean? How did you control the projectile’s force?
(ii) How does increasing the amount of force impact on the path and speed of a projectile?
(iii) What was your approach for successfully completing each level?
