Class Experience

10 lessons//2 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
An introduction to the basics of JavaScript. Students learn string, integer, and float data types and operations to prepare them for future projects.
Lesson 2
Drawing Basics
Students begin using p5.js and learn to create simple shapes using the coordinate system and drawing functions. Project 2 – House design Students design houses with different features by using the drawing functions they have learned.
Lesson 3
Expanding on the previous lesson, students learn to move shapes and create animations. Project 3 – Snow Storm Students will animate their house drawings to create a snowy scene, with snow falling and accumulating on the ground.
Lesson 4
Booleans and Conditional Statements
Students will learn how to use conditional statements to make different choices in their programs. Project 4 – Bowling Game Students create an animated bowling mini game using conditional statements to take different actions in the game and check outcomes.
Lesson 5
User Input and String Manipulation
Students learn to write text, use prompts, and handle user input in programs. Project 5 – Chat Bot Students create a program in which they can respond to questions and get unique answers depending on their answers.
 Week 2
Lesson 6
Students learn about the syntax and applications of functions. The functions will be used to take complex drawings we have made before and allow them to be created with a single line of code. Project 6 – Build a bear Students will write a function that draws a bear. The drawing can be customized by providing the color, size, and more as parameters to the function.
Lesson 7
Loops and Arrays
Students learn about while-loops, for-loops, and arrays and apply these new concepts to create more complex drawings. Project 7 – Neighborhood Students will create a program that draws a house, similar to the second project, but uses loops and arrays to make a neighborhood and report back a value for each house.
Lesson 8
Students create a project that incorporates all of the things they have learned so far and practice designing, structuring, and writing a larger program. Project 8 – Calculator Create a calculator application using all of the previous JavaScript concepts.
Lesson 9
All previously taught concepts are reviewed, with special attention given to topics students wish to apply to their own final projects.
Lesson 10
Final Project
The students will create their own program applying what they have learned throughout the class. Upon completion, the projects are demonstrated by their creators.
  • In this 10-lesson project-based course, students learn JavaScript fundamentals, including variables, conditional statements, loops, functions, and arrays, to create interactive web elements and animations using the p5.js library.
  • Ideal for beginners and those with some HTML/CSS experience, the curriculum includes project-based learning, a final project presentation, and quizzes to reinforce skills and readiness for future programming endeavors.

Dear Parents

Welcome to the Project-based JavaScript Coding program. In this online live course, students will learn the most popular programming language for web design, mobile application, and various applications. All lessons are project based and each lesson contains one fun project. All students will be asked to finish a final project with their own ideas which will be presented on the last day. There will be some quizzes for students to finish at home. 

To get started, please set up a https://replit.com/  account, which we will be using both in and out of class for this course.
