Automation & Robotics
- Students will explore mechanical systems, energy transfer, machine automation, and computer control systems. Using the VEX Robotics® platform, students apply what they know to design and program a variety of systems to complete a fictional mission to explore and colonize the exoplanet, Gliese 832c.
Students work will be turning in all their work in their OneNote Notebook.
- All student grading is done through standards based rubrics using standards from Common Core State Standards and International Technology and Engineering Educators Association. Student projects and assessments have their own rubrics which are located on pages within student Microsoft OneNote Notebooks. Please also know that grades are weighted, assessments are worth 30% of the student’s overall grade and projects are worth 70%.
Class proficiency scales are based on a 4-1.
3= Proficient/Meets Expectations
Based on West Ada School District guidelines, the proficiency scales is translated in the following percentages to be entered into Power School.
If you see that your grade (or your student's grade) in Power School show a majority of 90s then they are proficient for that assignment. You (your student) are right where they should be based on the standards assigned to that project or assessment.
Every assignment has a corresponding rubric in your OneNote Notebook. When graded, the appropriate scales are marked, and an overall score is given.
If you have questions, please ask me and I will be happy to discuss them with you.
