<p></p><p>Abstract In this paper I present a proposition for the application of the Verlet algorithm to the two-dimensional projectile motion in College Introductory Physics Courses. This work intents to study dynamical process on a particle moving under the influence of a known force e analize the mathematical concepts of limit and derivative of a function. These mathematical concepts, besides fundamental and basic ones, present one more difficulty to students in Introductory Physics Courses, since it is probably the first time students have contact with them.</p><p></p>
