Assignment for Turning

After writing and running the program as written on the turning page, write programs that make your robot do the following:

A – Spin left for 5 seconds.

B – Pivot on the right wheel for a half a second.

C – Veer off to the left in a gentle arc (have one side move faster than the other).

Each task illustrates a different turning behavior.

Close this Tab or Window after the assignments have been completed.
Bonus:

Turn Radius.

When your robot turns, one or both of its wheels make an arc or part of a circle. The distance from this circle’s center to the wheel making the circle is called the turn radius.

By playing around with the different power levels, figure out what is the smallest possible turning radius. Figure out what the largest would be. One of these is kind of like a trick question.

Super-mathy bonus!
