Milestone 1: Two PagesMilestone 2: Two PagesMilestone 3: Two PagesFinal Project: Four Pages
Milestone One: Qualitative Description Of Rube Goldberg Device Step In Module Three, you will submit the qualitative description of the Rube Goldberg device. This milestone will provide a basis for the development of the final project by describing in words (but using the concepts from the class) what is going on in the selected stage of your device. If you have not begun the design, provide a description of a device that you have found (in this case, provide a reference). The discussions from the first two modules of the course can be incorporated into this document. Your submission will describe qualitatively what is going on during the selected step and at the transitions to/from the neighboring steps. This milestone is graded with the Milestone One Rubric.
Milestone Two: Setup of Quantitative Description of Your Rube Goldberg Device Step In Module Five, you will submit the setup of the quantitative description. This milestone will provide an additional step toward the completion of the final project. This step should be fully analyzed in the final submission. Your submission will demonstrate your knowledge of how to calculate the values that give a quantitative description of what is going on during the selected step and at the transitions to/from the neighboring steps, using the quantitative description as a starting point. This milestone is graded with the Milestone Two Rubric.
Milestone Three: Constructed Rube Goldberg Device In Module Six, you will submit your Rube Goldberg device. For the completion of the final project, the Rube Goldberg device must be constructed using Algodoo. This assignment ensures that you have a workable device prior to the due date for the final project. This requirement is assessed by completion only, but is an important step to complete the final product submission. This milestone is graded with the Milestone Three Rubric.
Final Submission: Analysis Report In Module Seven, you will submit the analysis report, which includes a full description of your Rube Goldberg device steps. Make sure to add Critical Element V, which was not part of the milestones. Your report should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the critical elements of the final product. It should reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. This submission will be graded using the Final Project Rubric.
