Ollie (or Sphero) for Interior Angles of Regular Polygons
1 Create Code - Challenge
Students use the Tickle app on phones or iPads to complete a challenge.
Try putting the challenge like this:
You are challenged to figure out how to make Mr. Ollie create a regular polygon with 5 sides using the TickleApp. How about 6? 7? 8? 21? Is there a way that the same program (code) could work for all regular polygons if you entered in the number of sides?
Students share their codes and show their Spheros traveling the polygons. Teacher consolidates the codes into formulas for students.
Students can do some practice questions finding the interior angle of regular polygons and self-assessing their work.
