I told the grade 11’s (TEJ3M) that I wanted them to work on the 7 segment LED countdown activity using their arduino boards today. The links to the resources needed to complete this activity can be found below. Once the students are finished the 7 segment LED countdown, then they are to work on the arduino assignment titled “Nursery Rhyme – Baa Baa Black Sheep Assignment”. A copy of the this assignment can be found below. Also, I will post a youtube video below as an example of what the students should be doing for the “Nursery Rhyme – Baa Baa Black Sheep Assignment”. This will be the last tutorial/assignment for the unit.
I told the grade 12’s (TEJ4M) that they would be participating in “battlebots” today. Those students not ready today will be disqualified from the task and will receive an incomplete grade.
Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
Grade 11 (TEJ3M):
MEGA2560 Starter Kit Tutorial (This document contains the tutorials the students will be working on with the arduino board.)
7 Segment LED Configuration (The students can go to this link to help them connect their 7 segment LED to their breadboard. I will take a picture once they have completed this.)
Arduino & 7 segment Display Countdown (Step by step instructions for doing a countdown using an arduino & a 7 segment LED display.)
Nursery Rhyme – Baa Baa Black Sheep Assignment (The students are to work on this once they have completed all of the arduino tutorials and the 7 segment LED display countdown.)

Grade 12 (TEJ4M):
Lego Mindstorm Robot Wars Rules (Students are to read over these rules so they know the expectations for “battlebots”. I told the students we would have a 1m by 1m square arena instead of a 1m in diameter circular arena.)
Lego Sumo Challenge (2012) (This is a YouTube video of a robot challenge from 2012 that the students can watch related to the third and final task “battlebots”.)
Battle Bot Arena (This is a picture of the arena I made for the students in class for “battlebots”. Students MUST be ready by Wed June 1 to participate in the “battlebots” tournament.)
Battlebots Round Robin Schedule (This is the round robin schedule for the “battlebots” tournament scheduled for Wed June 1.)
