View Resource One-Dimensional Motion Classroom Activity

In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "analyze, predict and control the motion of a motorized vehicle as it travels in one direction along a one-dimensional path." The activity will demonstrate how three separate one-dimensional motions can be combined to produce complex controlled motions. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for...

View Resource 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)...

View Resource Servo and Stepper Motors

In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "compare and contrast hobby servo motors and small stepper motors in terms of the type and range of motion, precision, feedback and speed." The exercise is divided into two parts, the first dedicated to servo motors and the second to stepper motors. Step by step instructions are included for each section. A participant handout (including...

View Resource In The Right Place Classroom Activity

In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "use specified design criteria to compare and contrast four proposed software solutions for a control problem."
