Expanded Accelerometer and Gyro Lab

My students need supplies to expand our accelerometer and gyro lab

My Students

I teach Algebra 2, Honors Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus. I have an engineering background so I teach from more of a practical perspective. In my Honors Pre-Calculus and AP Calculus classes I have the top math students in the school.

My students want to connect the in class learning to practical applications.

They can pick-up the class work quickly, but they need to be challenged on how to use the material.

I love the practical applications questions my students have and having a lot of practical experience I am happy to feed their interest. They are the future technical leaders of our society.

My Project

As an extension to our AP Calculus class we have a robotics lab where students are able to implement real-world applications of our lessons. We have worked as part of the FIRST Program to build robots, but are looking to expand the lab to make it more practical for exploring real world applications of integration.

Using Arduino technology we plan to record accelerometer and gyro inputs from sensors and use them to compute position and orientation that we will use to drive a car.

We already have many of the supplies, but are looking to acquire more / different types of sensors to use in our lab. We also have connectors, cables, and simple calculators we use for the work.

This project will enable us to expand to at least 6 stations for our work.
