The Trig Game

Filed under: Uncategorized — dtengineering @ 12:18 pm

Okay… this is not really a robotics thing, per se, but it is a little piece of code that I threw together for my Essentials of Math 10 students to practice their trigonometry skills. It works, but isn’t completely finished in the sense that there are no directions or no start screens, and I want to improve the animations a bit.

But for a few hours work with Game Maker, it does what I needed it to do. And speaking of Game Maker… I’ve used it for two years with Grade 10 and 11 animation students… it is a fabulous way to introduce students to programming. The free download will work for most kids, but the upgrade to the full package is a very good value, too… even within my budget!

Feel free to use the Trig Game, and definitely take time to check out Game Maker. Download Trig Game 4 as a zip file here.
