I told the grade 11’s (TEJ3M) that we would be doing 2 mini lessons on the “ASCII Code System” and at the start of class today. These were both fairly short lessons. After the lessons I told the students to work on the worksheet titled “ASCII Code Worksheet”. We then took up this worksheet together as a class. I then gave the students the worksheet titled ”Logic Gates Worksheet” to work on for the remainder of the period.

The grade 12’s (TEJ4M) are to make 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). Once the students are completed this task, they are to take apart this robot and create new bot with 3 sensors (light, proximity & touch). This new bot will have to complete the second task in which it will have to go through an obstacle course similar to the one they had to do last year for their final project (see attachment below). The students can use this same bot when we do “Battle-bots” which will be our third and final task in this unit.

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

**Grade 11 (TEJ3M):**

May 4 – Handout – The ASCII Code System (I gave this handout to the students at the start of class and then we went over it on the digital projector.)

May 4 – Handout – ASCII Conversion Chart (I gave this chart to the students which has conversions for ASCII, binary, octal, decimal & hexadecimal. We briefly went over it on the digital projector.)

May 4 – ASCII Code Worksheet (blank) (I gave the students some time to work on this in class and then we took up the answers.)

May 4 – ASCII Code Worksheet Answers (These are the answers to the ASCII code worksheet.)

May 4 – Lesson – Basic Logic Gates (This is the lesson I did with the students on the white board today.)

May 4 – Logic Gates Worksheet (blank) (I gave the students some time to work on this in class and then we took up the answers.)

May 4 – Logic Gates Worksheet Answers (These are the answers to the logic gates worksheet.)

May 4 – Logic Gates Worksheet (continued) (I gave the students that were finished everything this sheet to work on in class.)

May 4 – Logic Gates Worksheet (continued) Answers (These are the answers to the logic gates continued worksheet.)

May 2 – Binary Addition Worksheet (Once the students are finished the worksheet titled “Binary, Octal, Hexadecimal & Decimal Review” then they can work on this sheet.)

May 2 – Binary Subtraction Worksheet (Once the students are finished the worksheet titled “Binary, Octal, Hexadecimal & Decimal Review” then they can work on this sheet.)

May 2 Binary Addition & Binary Subtraction Worksheet Answers (These are the answers to the binary addition & subtraction worksheets.)

May 3 – Binary Multiplication Worksheet (Once the students are finished the worksheets titled “Binary Addition” and “Binary Subtraction” then they can work on this sheet.)

May 3 – Binary Multiplication Worksheet Answers (These are the answers to the binary multiplication worksheet.)

**Grade 12 (TEJ4M):**

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.)

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.)

Second Track Using all 3 sensors (The students are to create a robot using all 3 sensors and will then program it to go through this course. The students can use this same robot for “Battle-bots”.)
