Crea la macchina per il calcolo di Pascal con del cartoncino e prova a utilizzarla con delle semplici addizioni o sottrazioni!

Per costruire gli ingranaggi ho usato Inkscape.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Do the Math!

Turn the gears clockwise and remember the order: units, tens, hundreds.(gira gli ingranaggi in senso orario e ricorda l'ordine: unità, decina, centinaia)

Step 2: Further Instructions

Per l'utilizzo devi muovere le ruote numerate in senso orario leggendo i numeri che scorrono indicati dalla freccia in basso.

Per rappresentare un numero partendo da 000 basta muovere la ruota in senso orario facendogli fare gli scatti del numero richiesto per la somma e procedere in senso antiorario per la sottrazione. Se il numero è di due o più cifre bisogna comporre il numero scomponendolo in centinaia, decine, unità e rappresentarle sulle rispettive ruote che devono essere un po' sollevate una rispetto all'altra con un cartoncino posto sotto ognuna. Si può fare anche livisione come sottrazione ripetuta (divisione euclidea con significato di resto).

************

To use it, you need to move the numbered wheels clockwise by reading the scrolling numbers indicated by the arrow below.
To represent a number starting from 000 just move the wheel clockwise making it click the required number for the sum and proceed counterclockwise for the subtraction. If the number is two or more digits, you must dial the number by dividing it into hundreds, tens, units and represent them on the respective wheels which must be raised a little with respect to each other with a cardboard placed under each one. You can also do balancing as repeated subtraction (Euclidean division with meaning of remainder).

    Hw doe the gears turn freely? It seems in this configuration; all gears connected, they cannot turn. They are locked together. Each gear should connect to one adjacent gear, but not a second gear. As soon as you have 3 gear connecting at once, they would be locked.
