3rd Six Weeks
What is Coding? This six weeks we will learn how coding relates to writing steps that make our computer programs and applications work. We will write algorithms that detail exactly how to perform each step in order to make something work. Before writing directions we will learn how to use symbols to instruct characters and build games throughout this six weeks.
We will use steps in algorithm to instruct our classmates on how to dance.
