Lego Mindstorms Robot Workshop

This is a five-part tutorial to learn to program Lego Mindstorms robots. The five parts include: basic movements, movement sequences, loops, sensors and conditionals. Just as with human movement, any complicated robot movement can be broken down into a series of simpler movements. We’ll start by getting familiar with the basic building blocks of robot movement.

Lessons to teach Ohm's Law, parallel and series circuits, and combination circuits

These are lesson plans and handouts for teaching ohm’s law, series circuits, parallel circuits and combination series/parallel circuits. I wish to thank Randy Storey at Thistletown CI for sharing his resources. Much of the content in my handouts was derived from Randy’s resources.

Number Systems

Students develop an understanding of the relationship between the binary number system and computer logic. Also, students learn how to convert Base 10 numbers into binary and vice versa. Character representation of binary codes is explored. Students have the opportunity to experiment in writing their own message and decoding. No computer necessary. Grades 9-10.

Overclocking a CPU

Overclocking a CPU For the Grade 12 TEJ (Old ICE) course, I have created an activity that encourages the grade 12 students to explore the concept of overclocking a CPU. This Activity gives the students a lot of leeway in terms of how and what they need to do. It was my intention to make this activity very similar to an "independent study".

Introductory assignment, Programming a Planned Picture, can be given to grade 10 (ics20) students after introducing the basic concepts in programming such as input/output, graphics, selection, repetition.

Setting Up A Computer

Students set up a computer including installing available software and an operating system. Students connect, configure, and test all peripherals. Finally, students troubleshoot any problems that arise. All students set up a PC. Grades 9-10. Prior knowledge: components of a computer system, correct terminology
