Students are divided into groups of 2-3.
Prior to the project, it is important that students have worked with terms such as sample space, frequency and relative frequency. On the assignment sheet, there is a description of how a frequency table can be set up, but it may be a good idea to review the design of the table together as a class.
Students develop a throwing robot using a joint module and a platform for the ball made of LEGO bricks. It may be a good idea to start by doing an activity in which various designs are tested and the class subsequently decides upon a standard design.
The robot is built, programmed, and tested before students begin the actual experiment.
An example of what the code could look like is included under solutions.
Class evaluation where students present their results.
In addition, students complete a self-evaluation form.
This evaluation is intended for the students’ own use but can also be used by the teacher in connection with future lessons.
