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, assessments, a culminating activity and a test. Unit 6 Problem 1 is the next step in this series.
There are several advantages of using 3 different versions especially in classrooms where the seating is tight. The versions would be given consecutively around the room so that students sitting together would each get something slightly different. This way students have different examples of the same exercise so they can work together to determine how something works. It also minimizes the amount of copying within the class.
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 ends with a culminating activity followed by a test so students can demonstrate their mastery of the concepts and materials presented in this unit.
The student handouts will require photocopying but that is all!
