Exploration of Robotics SyllabusINSTRUCTOR:Mr. VaughnCONTACT INFORMATION:The best way to contact me is by email,mailto:[email protected]?subject=Exploration of RoboticsIf you would like to phone, I may be reached during the day by calling the main school number: 330-948-2500x30158. I am usually available 7:00-7:30 am and 2:50-3:00 pm.Course Description/OverviewThis course is designed to give students an introduction to the field of robotics. Through the use of technology, studentswill learn to program robotics functions through the use of LEGO EV3 robotics kits. Utilizing different problem-solvingtechniques, students will work in teams to make small robots maneuver different challenges making use of varioussensors and programming logic. Fundamental physics and math concepts will be through application in robotics.Students in the class should be self-driven as most of the curriculum is at their own pace. Prerequisite: None Opento: All Credit: 1/2 Fee: $20.00 Course Length: 1 SemesterCourse Objectives/Big IdeasBig Idea #1: Programming is PreciseIf you want a robot to do something, you need to communicate that idea with mathematical and logicalprecision, or it won’t quite be what you intended.Big Idea #2: Sensors, Programs, and ActionsData from sensors gives a robot information about its environment. A program uses that data to make decisions,and the robot Acts on those decisions. Data underlies the core of the entire process.Big Idea #3: Make Sense of SystemsTo understand the way something works, construct a mental “model” of it in your head that captures theimportant features and rules of the system. This helps you make sense of it, and also gives you a tool to “playout” (similar) new scenarios in your head to predict what would happen.Big Idea #4: Break Down Problems and Build Up SolutionsTo solve a difficult problem, try breaking it down into smaller problems. Then, solve the smaller problems,building up toward a solution to the big problem.Big Idea #5: Computational Thinking Applies EverywhereThese skills – mathematical and logical clarity, using data, systems thinking with mental models, and problemsolving – are not just for robotics. They are key to solving many problems in the world.REQUIRED MATERIALS1. Internet access when not at school.2. Pen or pencil- Every student must bring a pen or pencil to class every day.
