Have you tried Python and want to learn more? In this one-time class, we will learn the "next steps" in Python: if-statements and random numbers. We will learn how to get Python to make decisions and make a Rock-Paper-Scissors game by the end. Students will program in the class and will be challenged to apply concepts in many examples and challenges. Students will be introduced to a concept and then try examples, looking for patterns and drawing inferences. The teacher will insure mastery...
Students will learn how computers make decisions Students will create code with if-statements and logical operators Students will apply their programming skills to make a simple game Students will think computationally to solve programming challenges
I am a middle school and high school Computer Science teacher. Over the past 12 years, I have taught more than 100 beginners how to program in order to make their own games and other projects. I love seeing students make magic with computers!
Students will be encouraged to think about how to improve upon the Rock-Paper-Scissors game following the class
Students need a laptop or desktop with a full keyboard, not a tablet or phone. Students need to be able to type to complete this class. A handout will be provided and it is recommended that students print this handout.
Students are encouraged to finish their story after class, if it is not completed in class. Bonus challenges are provided in the student materials.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need a laptop or device with a full keyboard, and ideally will access the Outschool classroom on this device while also coding. Chromebooks are ok, tablets are not ideal.
