What will be done with my students

The CORTEX Video Trainer using ROBOTC for VEX Robotics provides step-by-step videos, PDFs, rubrics, and so much more to get you up and running with the VEX CORTEX platform. The video trainer includes tutorials around Programming Fundamentals, the Engineering Process, Cortex Setup Instructions, Building Guides, Movement, Sensors and Program Flow. The VEX Cortex Video Trainer has been recently updated to include new features and topics, including:

How the Gyro Sensor works:
How to account for the momentum of the robot when turning
How to use the Gyro Sensor to reduce accumulated error
How to use the Gyro Sensor to increase turning accuracy
How the LCD works:
Displaying a custom message
Displaying continuously updating sensor values
Using the LCD to debug your program
Competition Programming which includes:
Creating a Competition Legal Program with the ROBOTC Competition Template
Performing a hardware-based test of a competition program with the VEXnet Competition Switch
Testing a competition program through the ROBOTC Debugger with the Programming Hardware Kit
Improved Interface
Updated to be compatible with the Curriculum Companion Robot Virtual World (Robot Virtual World for VEX license required)
Completely redone in HTML5 for maximum compatibility with browsers

 

 

Benefits to my students

Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that includes some characteristics, such as logically ordering and analyzing data and creating solutions using a series of ordered steps (or algorithms), and dispositions, such as the ability to confidently deal with complexity and open-ended problems. Computational thinking is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem-solving across all disciplines, including math, science, and the humanities. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between subjects as well as between school and life outside of the classroom.
