EV3 Activity 1.1 (Move from Start to Finish)
The goal of this activity is to move your EV3 Robot from the start line to the finish line. First place your robot on the arena with the tires on the starting line. You will need to write a program using the "Move Tank" block. Leave the power at 50%. Change the revolutions to 2 to start off. Download your program to your brick and run it. See how far it goes. Adjust the revolutions until the robot stops with the tires on the line. You will likely have to use a decimal and hundredths to accomplish this.

Better yet, Figure it out MATHEMATICALLY (It is Faster)
Step 1: Program your robot to turn the wheels 4 revolutions.
Step 2: Measure the distance your robot has traveled and divide it by 4. This tells you how far your robot travels in one revolution more accurately then just moving one revolution and measuring it.
Step 3: Measure the distance you want the robot to move.
Step 4: Set up this easy formula, cross multiply and divide.
