Lesson: How Far?

The goal of this explicit math lesson is to apply proportional math skills to calculate required Move block Duration parameters for different size wheels. NOTE: This lessons assumes students have access to wheels beyond those available in the base kit. The challenges can be modified to use only the stock wheels.

Students will be able to:

1. Calculate the distance a robot will travel in one rotation of the wheel

2. Predict the distance a robot will travel based on the size of its wheel

3. Calculate how many rotations/degrees are required to travel a given distance

4. Demonstrate actual robot travel distance versus calculated values
