The Python Turtle module is an excellent introduction to programming with a concentration on graphics. This bundle covers program planning, debugging, multiple functions, syntax errors, co-ordinate math, for loops, tracing, as well as the basic graphics commands within the Turtle module. Everything is included: student handouts, answer keys, tests and assessments.
It is intended for students with little or no background in computer programming. Concepts & skills have been broken down into short chunks. Students are given short code fragments to explore, followed by questions to consolidate their learning. Four assessments have been provided at appropriate intervals. They are also asked to reflect on their learning and provided terminology to begin a programming dictionary. The unit ends with a culminating activity followed by a test so students can demonstrate their mastery of the concepts and materials presented in this unit.
