In the spring of 2007, I suggested to my principal that a robotics course would probably be of interest to the students were I teach.  Of course the biggest problem with a hands on course is the funding.  Shortly after that, a fellow teacher gave me an application for a grant of $2000 from ING.  I filled it out and sent it in.  In July I received notification that I had been awarded a $2000 grant.  The local paper ran a humbling article about my winning the award which can be viewed here.

As a service to my students, below you will find the notes from which I have been teaching.  I hope that you will find this to be of some benefit as you study for your EOC's!  Please note that my lesson plans are continuingly evolving - mistakes, when found, will be corrected.

The notes are in PDF format, which means that you will need Adobe Acrobat to be able to read them.  This is a free program available from Adobe.  Simple click on this icon Get Adobe Reader to be taken to the website - you will be asked for the language type (default is English) and platform type - most of you will be running some form of Windows, select the version you are using.  One more selection on this page - Full or Basic version of Acrobat.  If you have a high speed connection to the Internet and lots of disk space you can choose the Full version.  If you have a dial-up connection, or are running low on disk space, I would recommend that you choose the Basic version.  Click on the Continue button - on the next page you only need to click on the download button to start the download.
