opening Opening activity:

Watch this video about Salto the jumping robot.

................................................................................................

The problem with the Finch robots seems to be that we are using Python 3.6 instead of 3.2

The laptops may have the old Python on them - we'll see.

Do assignment 1 from the programming lessons using the Edison.

Then do Assignment 5 - Python as a calculator (you don't need a robot)

And Assignment 6 Part 1 - Python Types (you don't need a robot for part 1)

.

Remember to check each program with me.

Turn your programs in as instructed on the lesson.

I will call you up towards the end of the period to explain how to do the Vocab Sheets.

 

closing Closing activity:

Open the Vocab sheet. Come to the front of the room, so I can show you how to do a vocab word for this class.

You will do the word autonomous. Save your vocab sheet to the Vocabulary folder you made (in your AI folder)
as the word autonomous. You will be making your own little dictionary.
