Transfer of knowledge. Learning how to solve problems. That's what kids need to be able to do in the real world. This unit is designed to see if they can take a word problem and design an entire program by themselves. Let's start by adding a main menu to Unit 7's Guessing Game. Kids have to redesign their plan and then update the code to include a 3 choice menu. This can be used for descriptive feedback or assessment: the choice is yours. Two rubrics are provided.
Then we move on to the main event! There are 41 different problems in this bundle arranged in order of difficulty: 28 conversion and 13 math. Most of the math problems require multiple user inputs so a lesson on multiple input error traps has been provided. Each student receives their own two page plan - carefully selected by the teacher based on their knowledge of their ability (differentiated instruction). A lesson is provided to demonstrate how to plan a full program - which increases in complexity through Units 10 and 12 (the final culminating activity). Everything is included: student handouts, plan exemplars, a code exemplar and a detailed lesson plan. Unit 9 Strings is the next step in this series.
Turing is a programming language that was written with high schools in mind which makes it ideal as a first language. This unit is the eighth of twelve.
The student handouts will require photocopying but that is all!
This unit includes:
This unit can also be purchased as three separate resources:
This bundle contains all 12 units.
This bundle includes units 1 to 12 with 3 different versions of the following:
This is ideal for classrooms where the seating is tight. There are three different versions of student handouts for these units. This includes the culminating activity! 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.
