I start off with the usual Serial commands to show the versatility. They will be involved in adding this code when they see that it needs it (as the lessons progress). It’s a learning moment. How to get past the obstacle. I wasn’t happy with how long my code was! It needs to be as compact as possible yet accurate. Turns out, the 9 year old that I started a year ago is doing about as good as I am with coding, so it’s not asking too much. They eat this stuff up!
It was kind of surprising they left this out because this is the greatest platform ever for this stuff. Hopefully the crew that upgrades the IDE can add this capability in for the Analog Pins the way they did for Digital Pins.
I even thought of putting it in a library format. #include would make it so if you wanted it, fine, if you thought it was a colossal waste of time, fine too. Not only do I not know how to do that, but I don’t think my existing solution (post 1) is good enough. Probably slows things down.
