 Monster 3-D Classroom Activity In this lesson from Math Machines, students will use the SAM stepper motor robot to follow a path and fire a laser at several cutouts of monsters. In doing so, the class will "calculate angles in the XZ-coordinate plane so that the movement of both the robot (aligned along the Y-axis) and a pointer (aligned along the X-axis) will combine to aim the laser and shoot each monster as the robot passes... http://www.mathmachines.net/pactivities/sample/index.htm
 Bug Zapper Classroom Activity In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "use trigonometry to automate the calculator-controlled Pointer to shoot a laser at a bug target." The activity will allow students the chance to practice constructing functions. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. Links to calculator programs are also included. http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/shoot_the_monster/ind...
 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." The class will take a look at an engineering problem and try to come up with a creative solution for it. A "Smart SAM" robot with a graphic calculator will be used in the exercise. A participant handout (including worksheets) and... http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/right_place/index.htm
 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... http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/1dmotion/index.htm
 Sam Come Home! Classroom Activity In this lesson from Math Machines, students will "use algebra and trigonometry to automate SAM the Robot to complete a right triangular path." The class will use the program SCHOME to perform the task. A participant handout (including worksheet) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. Links to the necessary calculator programs are also included. http://www.mathmachines.net/Activities/Right_Triangle_SAM/in...
