The first lesson on measuring distance asks students to experiment measuring speed and distance using the Sphero robot ball and a piece of tape on the floor. Using easy to follow step by step directions, the students will use both experimentation and math to learn about linear relationships and the fact that when something travels twice as long at the same speed, it will travel twice as far.
Some of the features of Sphero that I find most appealing are:
