Analog Clock Exploration Demo Video
Description:Students will build an analog clock from scratch that orients its hands based on input minute and hour variables. Students will have to use a series of translations, rotations, and loops to orient the clock’s numbers around the circle. They will have to write functions using math blocks to rotate the hands the appropriate number of degrees depending on the time.
