TEJ3M/TEJ4M – March 22, 2016

REMINDER:  PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEWS ARE WEDNESDAY MARCH 23 FROM 4 PM TO 7 PM.  STUDENTS ARE REMINDED TO GET AN INTERVIEW TIME BEFORE THIS DATE.  ALSO, STUDENTS ARE TO RETURN THEIR PROGRESS REPORT SLIPS SIGNED.  

The grade 11’s (TEJ3M) were put into pairs yesterday and were given a lego mindstorm kit.  Their first task was to organize their kits based on a photocopied sheet I provided for them (a majority of the groups were still doing this yesterday).  Once they had their kits organized, I asked the students to read the pdf instructions for building their first robot.  This pdf was titled “Express Bot Driving Base – Step By Step”.  Once the students were finished building this robot, they were to read over the pdf titled “Lego NXT robots using NXC tutorial – Part 1″.  I asked the students to write the code for “The First Program” using the program called “Bricx Command Centre”.  Once the students were able to do the first program I then asked them to write code to have their robot move forward for 4 seconds, stop, turn left, stop and then go forward for another 4 seconds.  I then made a track for the students using electric tape and told the students that I would like them code for this track.  Once the students have finished coding this track I will take a video of a successful run of the track.

I told the grade 12’s (TEJ4M) that I would be first going over a presentation with them at the start of class today titled “Network Topologies”.  The students were given a worksheet that they were to make notes on as I went over the presentation on the digital projector.  The presentation went a little longer than anticipated, so I told the students that I would give them an extension on their networking assignment from yesterday. Then I told the the grade 12’s were to work on the networking assignment titled “TEJ4M – Router Emulation Assignment”.  This assignment is due tomorrow by the end of the period.

Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.

Mar 21 – TEJ3M – Lego NXT robots using NXC tutorial – Part 1 (this is the coding examples for the “Bricx Command Centre” software – The TEJ3M students only.)

Mar 21 – TEJ3M – Express Bot Driving Base – Step By Step (instructions for building their first robot – the TEJ3M students only.)

First Track for Lego Mindstorm Robotics (The students have to code their bot so it goes around this track 1 time.  Once they have done this, they they have to do it 2 times continuously.  I will take video of this for a completion mark – TEJ3M students only)

Mar 21 – TEJ4M – Router Emulation Assignment (This assignment is due by the end of the period tomorrow– The TEJ4M students only.)
