Algorithm Picture Lesson

The goal of this activity is to build critical thinking skills and excitement for Computer Science / Computational Thinking, while laying a foundation of fundamental programming concepts. By scaffolding basic concepts like sequencing and algorithms in an unplugged activity, students who are intimidated by computers can still build a foundation of understanding. In this lesson, students will learn how to develop an algorithm and encode it into a program.By "programming" one another to draw pictures, students experience some of the core concepts of programming in a fun and accessible way. The class will start by having students view a video of a simple program demonstrating how to develop instructions for building a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Students will start with simple shapes, and progress to the coding of a specific drawing that other students will then try to replicate (“running the program”). If there is a desire to have a more of a Math slant on the lesson, the drawing could take place on graph paper. Students would then use the coordinates to complete the drawing.

Students lean about proportions, ratios, and unit rate. It is important for connections to be made among ratio tables, graphing points, and slope of a line. Students make these connections through the first activity provided by the VDOE. The second task by Illustrative Mathematics is a way to assess student understanding.

Grade 7 Module 1: Ratios and Proportional Relationships
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In Module 1, students build upon their Grade 6 reasoning about ratios, rates, and unit rates to formally define proportional relationships and the constant of proportionality. In Topic A, students examine situations carefully to determine if they are describing a proportional relationship. Their analysis is applied to relationships given in tables, graphs, and verbal descriptions.

Grade 7 Module 4: Percent and Proportional Relationships
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

In Module 4, students deepen their understanding of ratios and proportional relationships from Module 1 by solving a variety of percent problems. They convert between fractions, decimals, and percents to further develop a conceptual understanding of percent (introduced in Grade 6 Module 1) and use algebraic expressions and equations to represent and solve multi-step percent scenarios. An initial focus on relating 100% to the whole serves as a foundation for students. Students begin the module by solving problems without the use of a calculator to develop a greater fluency and deeper reasoning behind calculations with percent. Material in early lessons is designed to reinforce student's understanding by having them use mental math and basic computational skills. To develop a conceptual understanding, students use visual models and equations, building on earlier work with these strategies. As the lessons and topics progress and more complex calculations are required to solve multi-step percent problems, teachers may let students use calculators so that their computational fluency does not interfere with the primary concept(s) being addressed.

Math and Art with Sol LeWitt's Sculpture: "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6"
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Using the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts website, students explore the sculptural work of 20th Century Conceptual artist Sol LeWitt to expand their understanding of geometric concepts, creatively play with mathematical ideas, and be inspired to make art of their own.

The website page provides a scaffolded approach to exploring Sol LeWitt's sculpture titled "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6." culminating in a challenge for students to build a 3-D Tinkercad model of a geometry concept of their own choosing.

Students use concrete objects, representation, and abstract (algorithmic) thinking to complete 3 percentage word problems. The CRA assessment provides teachers with a deeper understanding of students' thinking. Do your students understand the relationship between the proportional algorithm and proportional reasoning?
