(Rover) Drive the Line Challenge with TI-Nspire CXII (Math in Motion Plus)

Students will apply their knowledge of the relationships between position vs. time graphs and velocity vs. time graphs, and their verbal descriptions, to write programs for Rover to drive.

Overview

In this Math in Motion Plus activity, students will write their own program for the TI-Innovator™ Rover. They will explore multiple representations of position, velocity and time to write code that will navigate a set of challenges. Students will apply their knowledge of the relationships between position vs. time graphs and velocity vs. time graphs, and their verbal descriptions, to write programs for Rover to carry out the motion described. The “Challenge” cards provided can be printed and/or cut into individual task cards and distributed to students (optional).

 

Goals

Students will:

Use their knowledge of position vs. time and velocity vs. time in the context of Rover motion challenge problems

Create and edit Python programs that include several commonly used Rover and calculator functions.
