Robot Virtual Worlds Standards

Standards for Mathematical Performance (CCSS.Math.Practice)
Standard (CCSS.Math.Practice) Robot Virtual World App
MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them Chapters are all based around solving real-world robot problems; students must make sense of the problems to inform their solutions
MP2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively Programming requires students to reason about physical quantities in the world to plan a solution, then calculate or estimate them for the robot
MP4 Model with mathematics Many processes, including the process of programming itself, must be systematically modeled on both explicit and implicit levels
MP6 Attend to precision Robots require precise (and accurate) input, or their output action will be correspondingly sloppy
MP7 Look for and make use of structure Understanding the structure of the physical environment, the interrelated components of robot hardware and software, and commands within a program are vital to successful solutions
MP8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning Any programmed solution to a class of problems relies on the programmer recognizing and exploiting important patterns in the problem structure. There is also an emphasis throughout the module on recognizing common programmatic patterns, as well as patterns within a solution that invite the use of Loops.
