Becoming a digital maker involves a certain amount of math calculations to be completed. Some of which are too complex to do in the head.
Most programmers will use a calculator every day but why not create your own and in the process get a more in depth look into how to make multiple micro:bits communicate with each other.
The challenge is to create a calculator that can perform the basic functions of add, subtract, multiply and divide for two input numbers.
For this challenge you can use three micro:bits; one micro:bit to be a calculator and the other two to generate the numbers for the calculation.
- Adapt your calculator to be able to deal with three input numbers.
- Include some more complex calculations such as square root or ‘to the power of’.
- Use of radio send and receive
- Use and understanding of variables
- Use of IF statements
