Class plan.png What are we going to learn today?[edit]

  1. We are going to test our understanding of simple math and loops in python. The loop part will be tricky.
  2. Everyone will be required to submit an answer to a question on our class wiki, and hopefully start coding.


Ourstandards.png Standards we are covering today[edit]


  • Apply analysis, design, and implementation techniques to solve problems (e.g., use one or more software lifecycle models).
  • Describe a software development process used to solve software problems (e.g., design, coding, testing, verification).
  • Describe how mathematical and statistical functions, sets, and logic are used in computation.


Planfortoday.png What is the actual plan?[edit]

  1. We will start with a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3aKKasOmIw
  2. We will then hack through mean, media and mode in Python. Mean, median, mode and other statistical functions
  3. We will then work on our design project

Target.png Is this graded?[edit]

  1. Students will receive a formative assessment for their problem set work. Please click here to see how you will be graded

Homework.png What is your homework and when is it due ?[edit]

  1. We must work on our design project. Everyone is required to respond to Mr. MacKenty's feedback on the discussion page for your project. This homework is due at the start of our next class.
