Lesson Plan: Resolution of Forces Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to solve problems about the resolution of a force into two directions.


Students will be able to

  • understand the definition of the resolution of a force into two given directions,
  • resolve a force into two components in given directions,
  • resolve the force created by the weight of a body on an inclined plane into two components that are parallel and perpendicular to the plane,
  • resolve forces in a real-life context.


Students should already be familiar with
