Sinclair Community College
 Description: In this lesson from Math Machines, students will learn a practical application of the law of reflection. The class will program a SAM robot to pivot a mirror and reflect a light source. In addition to learning about robotics and gaining experience programming calculators, the students will also get to see geometry applied in a real world experiment. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. Links to calculator programs are also included.
