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

Welcome to IB Computer Science!

Today we will:

  • Register for treehouse
  • Ponder a reflection question: Is the effort I put into this class going to get me to my desired grade?
  • Refresher on Pseudocode
  • Read some code
# Python program...what does this program do? 

# To take input from the user

x = input('Enter value of x: ')
y = input('Enter value of y: ')

temp = x
x = y
y = temp

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.
