The grade 11’s (TEJ3M) are to work on the worksheet titled “Binary to Decimal (and vice versa)” first. I have posted 2 wiki links below to help the students learn independently how to convert binary to decimal and vice versa. I also posted a lesson titled “The Binary Code System” below to help the students learn these conversions. Once the students are finished this worksheet, then they can read the next 2 lessons titled “Octal to Decimal (and Vice Versa)” and “Hex to Decimal (and vice versa)”. After going over these lessons, the students can then complete the worksheets “Octal to Decimal & Decimal to Octal Conversions Worksheet” and “Hex to Decimal & Decimal to Hex Conversions”. Once the students have completed all of the worksheets listed above, then they are to complete the worksheet titled “Binary, Octal, Hexadecimal & Decimal Review Worksheet”

The grade 12’s (TEJ4M) are a race bot (dragster) which will be timed. 30 tiles have been measured in the hallway and marked off with tape. The students will be give 3 chances to get their best time (I will time the students and take the best of 3 to be marked).

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

**Grade 11 (TEJ3M):**

Apr 22 – Lesson – The Binary Code System (Here is a lesson I did with my students a few years ago. I would like the students to read over independently to learn how to convert between binary to decimal & vice versa.)

**The 2 links below are related to Binary/Decimal Conversions needed for the worksheet listed above:**

Apr 26 – Binary, Octal, Decimal & Hexadecimal Conversion Table (This is a table I gave the students as a resource which gives them conversions for decimal values from 0 to 32.)

Apr 26 – Binary, Octal, Hexadecimal & Decimal Review Worksheet (The students are to do this worksheet once they have finished the worksheets “Binary to Decimal (and vice versa)”, “Octal to Decimal (and Vice Versa)” and “Hex to Decimal (and vice versa)”.)

**Grade 12 (TEJ4M):**

Apr 25 – TEJ4M – Race Car-StepByStep (This the step by step instructions the students can use to help them get started with their race robot.)

Race Car Bot Times (example) (This is a sample of the robots my past students made and the times their got when they raced them.)

Various NXT step by step builds (There are various step by step instructions for building all kinds of different nxt robots.)

Lego NXT robots using NXC tutorial – Part 1 (Tutorial 1 for the nxc programming language.)

Lego NXT robots using NXC tutorial – Part 2 (Tutorial 2 for the nxc programming language.)

Lego NXT robots using NXC tutorial – Part 3 (Tutorial 1 for the nxc programming language.)

RobotC Curriculum (The students can go to this resource to help them review and learn some new concepts related to the coding language for the nxt robots.)

Gear Ratios Resource #1 (This resource will help the students learn about the various gear ratios when making their race bots.)

Gear Ratios Resource #2 (This resource will help the students learn about the various gear ratios when making their race bots.)
