Instruction Guide: EV3 - Proportional Gyro Turns

Printer-friendly version

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.  The corresponding EV3 code demostrates the various gyro control techniques.  Sometimes, additional helpful tips are included the PowerPoint.  Students should use both materials.

  1. The lesson describes gyro lag and  different  techniques for dealing with it
  2. Students should use the PowerPoint and replicate the EV3 code.
  3. It is important that students read the comments.
  4. The lesson first covers parameterizing the offset technique learned earlier in the Wait for Gyro lesson
  5. The lesson then covers proportional control techniques to deal with gyro lag

Ensure students can explain the purpose and functionality of each technique.

The second-to-last slide contains a questions suitable for a Formative Assessment
