This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:
- to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
- to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices
What is this problem set trying to do
This problem set is helping you learn pseudocode.
Given a collection with 10 numbers write a pseudocode algorithm to add them together and output an answer. You may only use methods available to a collection.
Those methods are:
Please carefully study page four in this pseudo guide.
numbers_to_add = [12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21] # Your pseudocode here. print("The answer is: ", answer")
- Input: A collection named "numbers_to_add
- Expected output: "The answer is: 165"
In addition to adding the numbers, average them. In this case, your output will be 16.5. Please remember, you can only use methods available to a collection.
How you will be assessed
Your solution will be graded using the following axis:
- To what extent does your code implement the features required by our specification?
- To what extent is there evidence of effort?
- To what extent did your code meet specifications?
- To what extent did your code meet unit tests?
- To what extent is your code free of bugs?
- To what extent is your code written well (i.e. clearly, efficiently, elegantly, and/or logically)?
- To what extent is your code eliminating repetition?
- To what extent is your code using functions appropriately?
- To what extent is your code readable?
- To what extent is your code commented?
- To what extent are your variables well named?
- To what extent do you adhere to style guide?
