Sphero RVR - Trig Triangle Paths

The teacher will print and hand out several triangle pictures to each group of students. They will calculate the side lengths and angle measures with only limited given information. This lesson involves using trig functions and formulas studied in Algebra 1 or 2 and is a great application of "Solving a Triangle". Once the triangle is solved, students will code the robot to move along the triangle's path.

Sphero RVR - Angle of Incline

Students studying trigonometry will apply their knowledge of solving a triangle to answer this question: What is the steepest angle of incline that the RVR can travel upwards? Students will work in pairs using a ramp and measuring tape to draw a diagram and calculate the angle, test driving the RVR in several trials.

Sphero RVR - Pentagon Paths

After studying interior and exterior angles of polygons, students will program their RVR to trace around the path of a large pentagon. This will involve speed and heading settings in the Sphero EDU blocks.

Sphero RVR - Right Triangle Paths

After studying interior and exterior angles of polygons, students will program their RVR to trace around the path of a large pentagon. This will involve speed and heading settings in the Sphero EDU blocks.
