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

Hello Class!

  • We will touch on data migration (thanks to Marcin for noticing)
  • We will again review some basics of computational thinking:

Thinking procedurally[edit]

Decisions[edit]

Thinking logically[edit]

Thinking ahead[edit]

Thinking concurrently[edit]

Thinking abstractly[edit]

Connecting computational thinking and program design[edit]

Homework.png What is our homework?[edit]

In our next class I will expect you to describe to the class one aspect of computational thinking.

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 normally record my observations in a "evidence of learning" spreadsheet, which I will happily share with you privately if you so wish. I usually need a day or two notice.

Computer1.png As a computer scientist, you have:[edit]

  • Confidence in dealing with complexity
  • Persistence in working with difficult problems
  • Tolerance for ambiguity
  • The ability to deal with open-ended problems
  • The ability to communicate and work with others to achieve a common goal or solution
