1st Period


Coding Update

posted May 13, 2014, 7:56 AM by MrRob Reynolds   [ updated May 13, 2014, 7:56 AM ]

There have been some changes with our access to CodeHS, so your assignment has changed.
You are to finish any CodeHS challenge you have started, and still have access to, as well as correct any graded assignments that still show blue or red.

Once completed, you are to move on to learning some HTML and CSS website language using the tutorial site
You will need to create an account there, if you don't already have one.  I do not have direct access to your progress, so you will need to show me your work on your device.  I will be checking in on your progress after Memorial Day.

CodeHS Syllabus

For the next several weeks we will be returning to programming with CodeHS.

Weekly check points will be established for grading purposes (see the class calendar for check point due dates).  It it ok to work ahead.  But, make sure you are mastering each new skill as it is presented, and that you complete each tutorial and exercise with a passing review.

Sumo Bot Challenge

Your next robot challenge is to design, build and program.

Check the class calendar for due dates!  These weekly check points and final preparedness will make up a major part of your 3rd quarter grade

See our Rules of the Game document for details on building requirements, etc.

This is due and will be presented at the school-wide assembly on the 28th of this month.

Independent coding assignment.

Follow these instructions:

Sign up for a Student Account.
1. Students go to and sign up there. They will receive an email with instructions.
2. The instructions will tell them to go to
3. At this link, students can fill in their info. The class code should be something like MT0056 and will be told to them on the CodeMontana website. If they can't find it, they can just use MT0001 since it doesn't actually matter which class they are in.
4. Then, they should be signed up to get access for 90 days.
5. Students should now switch classes by visiting this link: and inputting your class code, 71D8

Quick How to: 


You will work through these coding challenges independently.  I will assign check points to let you know where you should be by certain dates. However, you may work ahead if you choose, but don't fall behind as this is part of your class grade.

Judging Rubric & Class Grade

posted Jan 16, 2014, 1:03 AM by MrRob Reynolds   [ updated Jan 16, 2014, 1:09 AM ]

How will your team be evaluated for your Robot, Project and Core Values?
Check this site and the linked Rubrics for guidance.  This will be the same Rubric used for your class grade.  Note,in order to be consistent, fair and reasonable, while this is a team grade, individual consideration may be applied for amount you contributed when determining your personal class grade.  This will be determined based on observed participation, document history contribution, other parts of your contribution, i.e. models or displays.

NOTE: To be considered an ACTIVE member of your team, and travel to Bozeman for competition, it is required that you attend and present your team project during the 4H Demo evening on Tues, Jan 21st.  5:30PM at LCHS Auditorium

Improve your Grade - Extra Credit

posted Dec 28, 2013, 4:29 PM by MrRob Reynolds   [ updated Dec 28, 2013, 4:29 PM ]

Working on a team, and 'earning' a team grade can be a learning experience in and of it's self.  Are you not satisfied with your mid-term grade for Robotics?  Not sure what you could personally do to help out your team?  Well, here is an opportunity to do a little extra credit work to improve your grade for the quarter.  If you already have created a account, go to your progress page, scroll to the bottom and  join our class using this code: For MS Robotics enter: GDMKBL.  If you don't already have an account, you can go to and create a new account using the same code MS Robotics enter: GDMKBLrk

Let me know if you need any assistance with this process.  Send me an email notifying me that you have 'joined' our class and wish to work on this assignment for credit.  I will then monitor your progress and keep you posted on your new and improved grade.

Remember, you get out of life (anything, actually) what YOU decide to put into it.  As the saying goes... nothing ventured, nothing gained. 

As always, let me know how I can help you learn.

Journal Entry - Midterm Grading

posted Dec 6, 2013, 7:05 AM by MrRob Reynolds   [ updated Dec 6, 2013, 7:05 AM ]

With nearly a month to go, your team should be progressing right along with both your robot missions and your project research and presentation. Use this Rubric to grade yourself as a member of your team.  Using your Shared Journal document, provide a short example of why you gave yourself this score for each category:  Contribution, Time-management, Attitude and Working with others.  Your final entry for today, should have, thus, four short paragraphs.
