Then we gave different instructions for the robot to follow. It was tricky because we didn’t know if we were doing it properly but we helped each other to work it out.
This week we returned to exploring spirolaterals – patterns formed by repeating simple mathematical rules. The first time we looked at these patterns we worked with pencil and paper. This time we used our understanding of coding to program a computer character to do the drawing for us…
