Hi
I was wondering whether or not you can use other methods of doing projectile motion questions. Could I use the calculus based method I learnt in extension 1 maths?

Pretty sure you can't. You have to use the formulas on the formula sheet.

No you can't, you have to do the way the syllabus teaches you.

Euugh, using the formulas is so clunky.
It's usually actually easier, since the only difference with the calculus method is that you derive the equations of motion first. In HSC Physics, you're allowed to just quote them. And you don't need to use the exact symbols in the formulae as printed in the formula sheet (like with etc.), you can use more convenient symbols if you like, like saying etc.
