    All programming languages have built-in math functions. This unit teaches kids about some of Python's built-in functions along with user input and casting as it reinforces code organization and the concept of designing user friendly applications. It also covers assignment statements, global, local and constant variables, variable types, several built-in math operators, math module built-in functions as well as an introduction to the Decimal module. Everything is included: student handouts, answer keys, PowerPoint lessons, assessments, a culminating activity and a test. Turtle Unit 6 Word Problems is the next step in this series.

    Concepts & skills have been broken down into short chunks. Students are given short code fragments to explore, followed by questions to consolidate their learning. Three 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 bundle ends with a culminating activity followed by a test so students can demonstrate their mastery of the concepts and materials presented in this unit.

    Duration: Ten 75 minute periods.

    This unit bundle requires NO PREP! The student handouts will require photocopying but that is all!
