This activity introduce the Cartesian coordinate system and allows the user to practice their point plotting skills by having them move a robot through a mine field to a target location. Moves are accomplished by specifying the coordinates of the new location. In order to win, the path must not cross a mine. This activity would work well in groups of two for about thirty minutes if you use the exploration questions and fifteen minutes otherwise.
You can play right away or start first with the LEARNER page.Also,you will find more help in the HELP and INSTRUCTOR pages.
Algodoo is a 2D simulation environment for creating interactive scenes in a playful, cartoony manner, making use of the physics that we use to explain our real world. Algodoo is designed to encourage young people’s own creativity, ability and motivation to construct knowledge.With Algodoo kids learn by designing, constructing and exploring physical systems.
You can download a full version that will work for 14 hours or you can try Phun,a the previous of Algodoo which is still free.
