Use your knowledge of math and geometry to create a working analog clock with moving second, minute, and hour hands. You'll need to calculate the angle that each hand should point based on what time it is. When you're done, you can add in reminders about what you need to do throughout the day to make your own alarm clock!
Students follow step-by-step instructions to code an analog clock. This project requires a working understanding of angles and geometry and an ability to apply critical thinking to set up and solve geometry problems.
