It is emphasized that Problem Based Learning (PBL) and Cooperative Learning( CL) take part in one of the important applications provided active learning in physics teaching. Despite having paid attention to the positive affections of researches based on practicing in the subject of education, literature do not include developed source materials in the context of related researches at expected level. The purpose of this research is to introduce developed activity by detailing gradually based on the principle of Cooperative Learning ( CL) and PBL in the unit of 'Motion on the Earth' in the topic of 'Movement of Vertical Shooting' on physics course in the second grade of high school.
