Topic:  Mathematics

Tags: Acceleration, Algebra, Angles, Distance

Students will apply their knowledge of the relationships among distance, rate and time to write equations to optimize routes through a “city” or maze with obstacles.

Overview

Students will explore measurement of distance and angles to write code to navigate a set of challenges. Students will apply their knowledge of the relationships among distance, rate and time to write equations to optimize routes through a “city” or maze with obstacles. This activity is appropriate for students familiar with modeling and solving relationships involving distance, rate, and time.

Goals

Students will:

  • use their knowledge of angles, writing equations, and the relationship  in the context of challenge problems.
  • create and edit TI-BASIC programs that include several commonly used Rover and calculator commands.
