4.1 Input, Output & Variables Unplugged (ECS+Python)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will use a model of a computer, taking the form of a sort of board game, to explore writing programs that include input, output, variables, and arithmetic. Students will read, write, and debug pseudocode as they work on solving simple programming problems using manipulatives. This lesson is part of the ECS+Python lesson set, providing supplemental Python curricular material for the Exploring Computer Science curriculum.

4.2 Input, Output & Variables Coding Practice (ECS+Python)
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

"In this lesson, students will read and trace a “Hello World'' Python program to learn how to display simple output. Then, they will create an “Addition Calculator” to learn how to work with variables and arithmetic operators. At the end, students will modify and complete partially-written Python programs, applying their knowledge of variables and arithmetic operations. This lesson is part of CodeVA's ECS+Python lesson set, providing alternative units for the Exploring Computer Science curriculum covering basic Python coding concepts.

4.5 Conditionals & Randomization Coding Practice (ECS+Python)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students will explore the “Testing Random Numbers” program to learn how to generate random numbers and use if-statements to make comparisons. Then, they will create a “Roll the Dice Game” to learn how to work conditionals and random numbers. At the end, students will create a simple program applying their knowledge of randomization and conditional control structures. This lesson is part of CodeVA's ECS+Python lesson set, providing alternative units for the Exploring Computer Science curriculum covering basic Python coding concepts.

Micro:Bit Puzzle Box Lesson Sequence (ECS+Micro:Bit)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson sequence, students will work in teams to learn the MakeCode and Micro:Bit Development platform. They’ll develop basic programming skills, implementing input, output, variables, and conditional control structures. At the end of the sequence, students will compete in a “puzzle box” challenge, attempting to create a puzzle using their Micro:Bit, code, and craft supplies and earning points based on how challenging their puzzle is to solve.
