Roamer – Discovery at Every Turn

1520-401 Early Years Roamer

Roamer for students 3 to 5 years old

This is the simplest of the standard Roamers. It uses counting to determine the number of moves to make or how long to wait.  It turns in quarter turns.  It also has four user keys that the teacher can set up.  So for example if you are doing project about dogs, you can add a dog bark to the Roamer’s capability.

1520-403 Primary Roamer

Roamer for students 7 – 9 years old

Primary Roamer is the third step in developing coding skills. Students can give speed, volume and power different values.  This gently introduces the important mathematical idea of a variable.  You can also introduce Procedures: a basic idea of computing and problem solving.  The Input and Output features add to the range of applications suitable for this age group.   Importantly, Roamer does this in a way that meets the student’s immediate needs while building a foundation for their future studies.

1526-101 Clear Grid Line

Invaluable for Activities with Young Students

This line is 1 square wide and 10 squares long. Forward 1 will move Roamer to the next square.  Made, like the Clear Grid Mat, from a clear durable plastic it provides an ideal running surface.  It is nonslip and allows Roamer to run over pictures without damaging them.  You will find it useful for sequence work.  Put images under each square to create interesting tasks.  For example the pupils can draw houses or shops for a street scene.  You can then use this with number line work.  Or you can play with nursery rhymes like one, two, buckle my shoe.  The possibilities are endless.

1526-100 Number Line

Roamer and the Number Line – a Potent Combination

We pioneered work with robots and number lines.  You will find plenty of Activities in the Library and in the curriculum packs.   Together Roamer and Number Lines provide students with models of arithmetic.  For example older pupils might learn a rote rule like, “Two minuses are a plus”.  If they use Roamer to explore a Number Line they focus on key mathematical ideas: what is a negative number; what is a positive number; what does subtraction look like. Instead of learning a rote rule they gain a visual, spatial and kinaesthetic understanding.

On one side Number Line has 11 squares numbered 0 to 10.  The other side has numbers 0 to -10.  If you put two together you get a -10 to 10 line.  The Line provides Roamer with a durable nonslip running surface. Forward 1 moves Roamer to the next square.

1526-103 Clear Grid Mat

One of the Most Frequently Used Accessories

You can create environments for Roamer to explore with pictures or children’s drawings.  Made from a clear durable plastic the mat provides an excellent nonslip protective running surface for Roamer. Simply place it over the top of your pictures.  Forward 1 will move Roamer from one square to the next.  The grid provides a structure that helps younger children to solve problems in a way that develops their mathematical skills.  The mat is 5 squares wide and 5 squares long and at it fits on table arrangements normally found in classrooms.  The mats butt together so you can make bigger exploratory areas.
