6th Period


EV3 Robotics

Are you ready to start learning about robotics?  In this assignment, you and a partner are going to build, program, test and improve designs for a robot.  Your ultimate challenge will be to build and program a robot that can autonomously complete a maze challenge.  You've got some work cut out for you!

We will be using the EV3 program installed on the classroom robotics computers.  This is not available from your Chromebooks.  You will need to make sure you use the same computer each day, and save your files to personal folder you create on the drive. 

Part one is to log in to your computer using temp and no password required.  Then create a folder with you and your partner's names, so you can both find it easily.

From there, you are to open the EV3 program from the desktop icon.  When it opens, go to the "Robot Educator" section and start learning with the "Basics."  There are nine (9) sections to complete.  As you work through these tutorials, make sure to stop often and try out what they have just shown.  Remember, "pause" when learning from a video tutorial is truly your friend.  Note, there is no voice with these videos, so you won't really need headphones. Just pay close attention!  As you complete each of the nine sections, make sure to show me your program and demonstrate your robot's new skills.  Completion of each section will make up your grade for this part of the quarter.

If you get ahead of the game, you can move on to the "Beyond Basics" section, which teaches more advanced robotics programming skills.  Once the majority of the class has worked through the basics, I will lay out your maze challenge, so you and your partner can start to develop your robot solution.

Always check the class calendar to make sure you are keeping up with expected progress.

Sign up for a eduCanon student account, 

Next add Mr. Reynolds ComTech class (you will need to search for this class, there is more than one Mr. Reynolds)

See this tutorial if you need help getting signed up to class.

Once your account and class are created, next view this video pausing to answer the short questions as it plays.

Khan Academy Programming Syllabus

You may continue working at your own pace as you master each topic of the Computer Science, Intro to Java Script Drawing and Animation.

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.

Be sure to save all Challenges (those with a star) as a Spin-Off so you can show me your work.
