As AndyMark continues to support robotics education in the FIRST platform, we have extended our support to curriculum. We are happy to share with educators our first curriculum for the AndyMark C-Base Drive Chassis. This comprehensive curriculum is designed around common core standards for 11th and 12th grades, and focuses on building, manufacturing and applying physics to design and testing in Technology Design or Robotics Education classes. This is a complete curriculum packet developed specifically for the am-2239 C-Base Drive Chassis. The curriculum includes 4 complete lessons that will allow teachers to provide hands-on learning for students while teaching engineering and design concepts. The curriculum includes student assessment and evaluation tools and fulfills requirement for the ITEEA and Common Core Standards. The curriculum is provided at no cost with the purchase of an am-2239.
Below is the curriculum overview. You can find resources for this curriculum on the 2013 Curriculum page.
