In this Math in Motion Plus activity, students will write their own program for the TI-Innovator™ Rover. They will use several commonly used Rover Python functions while exercising their knowledge of polygons, the coordinate plane, and equations of lines to write code to have the Rover complete a series of challenges. Students will progress through a series of challenges to build skills and then attempt a more complex final challenge. Student “Challenge” cards have been provided and can be printed/cut into individual task cards, and distributed to students (optional).
