Johanna Emptage▸ U4: Math Connections

Last year I was fortunate to ask for and receive a grant from the School Council at my school which enabled me to buy several Dash and Dot robots, as well as accessories for them. It means that I have enough Dash robots for 2 children to share 1 robot and enough robots for the whole class to use at the same time. We have been using different apps and different activities at various year levels, so my students (Prep to Year 6) have learnt some coding skills using the robots.

There are many excellent lesson plans available on the Wonder web page and there is an excellent one about geometry using Dash – it has some excellent task cards which can be modified to suit any class – and also has links to 2 very useful web sites to use as an introduction –

This lesson plan would meet the Digital Technologies outcome – Follow, describe and represent a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve simple problems (VCDTCD017

and the Maths outcome – Recognise and classify familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using obvious features (VCMMG098).
