Graphing with Sensors (Gr. 8)

Using Clever Programming to Graph the Output of the mBots Sensors

Description

The mBot and the mBlock software are both perfect tools to explore graphing. In this lesson, students will learn how to graph the data coming in from their mBot's sensors onto the screen in front of them. After that, students will take it to the next level by being critical about the way they display their data, and explore the effects of offsetting, and exaggerating their data.
