Dinner Robot Exploration Demo Video
Description: In this exploration students will set dinner tables by building and moving plates around using a first-quadrant 2D coordinate system. They will understand that translations from the origin define the x- and y-positions of a point in the plane. Students will create modules that allow them to quickly tell a “robot” where they would like a plate set so they can get out of doing the chore themselves!
CC 5.G.1: Use axes to define a coordinate system. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis.
CC 5.G.2: Represent real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
CSTA 2-AP-11: Create clearly named variables that represent different data types and perform operations on their values
CSTA 2-AP-14: Create procedures with parameters to organize code and make it easier to reuse
