(Hi there. I am an experienced writer of resources who has written two Computing text books for the Scottish education system. My resources are always designed to be engaging and exciting. As a result they are used in thousands of schools all over the world.)
Computational Thinking (learning to think in a logical/problem solving way) is the buzz word in the teaching of programming. By teaching students to predict the outcome of small pieces of code they naturally become better at building their own programs.
This homework is based around the programming language Python (version 3). Students are given small pieces of code and asked to predict the output when certain inputs are entered.
Python is an open source programming language. It’s use is not subject to Copyright.
Have fun. My students loved these!
