Hello Seniors,

  • We start with a reflection
  • We will learn about the last control topic: GPS systems click here
  • We will tackle a pseudocode problem and discuss general problem solving:
    • Carefully read every single word in the problem.
    • Thinking through a problem without a computer (how would you explain this to a friend to solve this?)
    • Declare variables at the top of your code
    • Use comments liberally
    • Write legibly
    • Always ensure there is output to your code

Target.png How am I being assessed today?[edit]

I will assess you formatively today, and make a professional judgement to what extent you understand our learning material. I will use observation, your written work, answers to questions, and contribution to class discussions as data to make my decisions.

I will also ask you to complete a self-assessment which I will use to help me guage how well you think you understand our material in class.
