line rider in scratch (part one)

Rob Costello came up with the idea of incorporating the popular game line rider into the maths curriculum

When I mentioned this to my year 8s quite a few of them already had it on their memory sticks

I've developed a very simple version using Scratch. I discovered that Scratch comes with a ready made drawing pencil sprite (in the Things folder), with a drawing script. So I only had to write a script for the character to fall and then move along the pencil line.

I've written a worksheet. Send me an email if you want a copy.

I'm working on a part two, which introduces arrows for upwards motion and speed variations.
