A teacher at Lisgar Collegiate Institute had linked to my Line Rider blog post on a wikispaces.com site for an advanced function math course. My post is listed as a resource for determining where the Line Rider .sol file is located. What a nifty way of teaching math. Create your own Line Rider track.
Here’s a snapshot of the Line Rider assignment for Mr. Tang’s math class:
Goal 1: Create a course that illustrates the different functions that was covered in the course.
Goal 2: Describe in mathematical detail the course.
Goal 3: Calculate average and instantaneous rate of change of the line rider.
Criteria: Each course needs to have the following functions:
- Two different polynomial functions (degree 2 or greater)
- One rational function (that is factorable)
- Sine function
- One logarithmic function
- One composite function ( )f g
PS: I have absolutely no idea what any of this means :-)
