This lesson has two resources.

The primary instructional materials are the PowerPoint/pdf files from EV3Lessons.

The PowerPoint (and pdf version) contains all the information needed for the lesson, inclduding EV3 code for the proportional line follower.  Sometimes, additional helpful tips are included the PowerPoint.  Students should use both materials.

  1. The lesson describes the purpose of calibrating a color sensor, and when this should be done
  2. Students should use the PowerPoint file and replicate the EV3 code.
  3. It is important that students read the comments.

Ensure students can explain the function of calibration with a color sensor and why/when it would be necessary
