 SAM Plays T-Ball Classroom Activity In this lesson from Math Machines, students will calibrate a servo motor to be used as an arm for a SAM robot. The calculator program SAMPUTR will be used to operate the servo motor. This classroom activity will give students experience with programming calculators, collecting data and using linear functions. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available... http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/sam_plays_t-ball/inde...
 Winch In A Pinch Classroom Activity 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... http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/winch_in_a_pinch/inde...
 Light Rays Classroom Activity 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)... http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/lightrays/index.htm
 Color Sines Classroom Activity In this lesson from Math Machines, the class will use an RGB Color Mixer and a graphing calculator to control the color of a single pixel. In addition to learning about color, the students will gain experience using and programming calculators.
