Abstract: RILE is a Robotic Interactive Learning Environment to teach Physics at the middle and high school level. It consists of a set of custom made robots, which can be controlled by the teacher or student, via WI-FI, using a GUI. Each concept in Physics is expressed through multiple robotic activities. The environment includes a complete curriculum, consisting of instruction screens, background material for the teacher, experimental procedures, and an online student logbook, which the teacher can grade. The activities include exercises promoting multiple representations of conceptual knowledge - verbal, pictorial, graphical, and algebraic.
