Math with Spheros at Memorial

Mrs. Olshaw’s 5th grade math class worked in groups with Mrs. Weldon and Mrs. Myer in the Memorial Learning Commons to graph a 3 or 4 line shape in Explain Everything, convert their shape measurements from inches to centimeters, create the shape on the floor and code a Sphero to follow the outline of the shape. Coding also included at least one change in color and a sound. Students worked diligently and assisted each other in order to complete the project. Once they completed the project, they were asked to make a mirror image of the shape and code the Sphero to follow the outline without crossing a line more than once.
