Jessica does a fantastic job explaining each step of the navigation. I have a question about the maze setup. She says,
"Although this code was written specifically for the maze shown in Figure 2 (previous section), it can be adapted to a variety of other situations as well as expanded for more complex mazes."
Why is this code specific to the maze in Figure 2? Why wouldn't it work for any maze with T intersections and dead ends (no loops)?
I have made maze sections on cardstock, and we usually piece them together for our line following. I have straight lines, turns, T-intersection (new for this project) and dead ends (new for this project). These are similar to the attached picture. Can I use these to make up a random maze, or does it need to look like the one in Figure 2? And I need to be able to explain why, cause there's always a kid that asks...
Thanks for your help! This is my fourth time teaching the class and it's getting so much better.
