Url: http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/winch_in_a_pinch/index.htm
Creator: Chaney, Robert
Publisher: Math Machines
Sinclair Community College
Description: In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "construct a function to automate the Pointer/Power Pulley to move a toy truck up a ramp." The class will program a calculator to control a stepper motor. This classroom activity will give students experience constructing functions. They will input the distance the toy truck's operator wants the truck to travel and output the steps the motor needs to turn in order to travel.
A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. Links to calculator programs and PDF files with details on the stepper motors required are also included.
