Post-it Notes animation

Artifact

This video of some amazing stop-motion animation using post-its dubbed ‘Deadline.’

Guiding Questions

  • How long did this take?
  • What’s the time-length of each frame?
  • How many post-its were used? How many of each color?
  • Something about coordinate transformation?
  • Can we do this?

Suggested Activities

  • Have students use coordinate geometry and transformations to make their own stop-motion post-it video. Or at least storyboard it. I imagine by the time something like this is planned out and storyboarded, there would be a TON of coordinate geometry and transformations involved. Even a 30-second stop-motion post-it video could probably involved dozens and dozens of coordinate transformations.

A single robot-made rainbow ; what does it mean?

Artifact

This amazing video of a rainbow-painting robot. (h/t: Science Friday.)

Guiding Questions

  • How much paint did this guy need of each color?
  • What’s the radius of the rainbow? or, What’s the length of the arm that moves in a semi-circle that paints the rainbow?
  • Which color will run out soonest? And how much sooner?
  • What would the rainbow look like if he peddlded while the spraypainting arm was in action?
  • Could we do this for our integrated Math-Science Engineering final project?

Suggested Activities

To be decided, but here’s a screen shot if it helps.
