Foreword

I am experimenting with using the VEX Robotics V5 platform as the foundation of the Robotics 10 course. I would greatly appreciate any constructive feedback you may have while taking this course to help me fine-tune the direction I will take it in the future. Best of luck and have fun!

Organization

Cleanning Up

Yes, I know, but these kits are incredibly expressive. It is very important that we do not mix the pieces and generally put back what we use. This is included in the outcomes of every CTS modules as demosntrat[ing] basic competencies. In generally, basic competencies are worth about 10% of each module, it should be a free 10% if you are respectful to the lab and the kits you are using.

Storage

You will receive a storage cupboard when you receive your kit. It is your responsibility to store all your projects in their cupboard at the end of each class. Again this is part of your basic competencies mark.

Marking and Credits

Marking

This class is marked on a continuous-basis; this can differ from a traditional class. Typically a traditional course is focused on an outcome or final product, meaning your final product determines your mark. While products do matter in robotics, the outcomes concentrate more on your growth over the course. Meaning a substantial part of your grade will be determined from your daily activies.

Credits

To the uninitiated, this course covers a variety of modules in the Alberta CTS curriculum. Each completed module is equal to one credit; the minimum goal each semester is to complete five modules. After five modules are completed, the course opens up to a student lead project, in which the student must design and complete a project-based on their interests. Credits for students that complete projects vary by project. In this unit the following modules will be completed:

  • ETL 1130: Robotics 1
  • CSE 1110: Structured Programming
