Start with Micro:Bit
To begin using Micro:Bit, it's important to start with the first step. The activities in the learning book are specifically designed to help learners practice and comprehend how Micro:Bit works, based on its features and functions. I have designed learning books for both versions, V1 and V2. Simply click the link below to download. 👇🏽
In math classes, students in Y9 have been learning about trigonometry and the measurement of angles. As part of their practical work, they used micro:bits to make a clinometer and record the data. They then applied the equations they learned in class and used the data they collected to complete real-life tasks. In particular, they were able to measure the heights of various objects around the school by using the clinometer and applying trigonometric ratios.
Based on the features of data logging and accelerometer on Micro:Bit, I have created the instructions to help students make their own clinometers using Micro:Bit and collect data on the angles of objects. The instructions also include steps on how to use trigonometric ratios to calculate the height of the objects being measured.
I have created the instructions for both Micro:Bit V1 and V2.
