Archery--a Catalyst for Subject Integration.
Savoy, Gordon H.
Archery involves skill development in P.E., mathematics, and science. Archery taught at the high school level has 3 main objectives: (1) to determine the distance an arrow will travel if shot into the air; (2) to introduce and familiarize pupils with the metric system; and (3) to reach some objectives laid out in the curriculum revision guides in mathematics and science--to stimulate critical thinking, to develop a process of seeking answers, and to develop ability and skills in 20 objectives, such as observing carefully and collecting and organizing data. The method of approach involves 3 lessons: (1) shoot arrows at 30 degrees, using the metric system as a means of measurement; (2) vary the draw and measure distances and angles after firing arrows with 20, 30, 40, and 50 cm. draws; and (3) graphing draw distance to predict that, in all likelihood, with a 35 cm. pull the arrows would have an angle of impact ranging between 30-40 degrees.
