Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

In order to create more interesting and detailed images, the class is introduced to the sprite object. Every sprite can be assigned an image to show, and sprites also keep track of multiple values about themselves, which will prove useful when making animations. At the end of the lesson, everyone creates a scene using sprites.

Grade: 6
3) Create pseudocode that uses conditionals.

Examples: Using if/then/else (If it is raining then bring an umbrella else get wet).

Evidence Of Student Attainment:
Students will:
  • compile a set of steps that contain conditional operations to include if, then, and else.
Teacher Vocabulary:
  • pseudocode
  • conditionals
Knowledge:
Students know:
  • that conditional statements provide options for how a process is completed.
Skills:
Students are able to:
  • communicate a process and its available yes/no or true/false options.
Understanding:
Students understand that:
  • conditionals are limited to options that are either true or false.

5) Identify algorithms that make use of sequencing, selection or iteration.

Examples: Sequencing is doing steps in order (put on socks, put on shoes, tie laces); selection uses a Boolean condition to determine which of two parts of an algorithm are used (hair is dirty? True, wash hair; false, do not); iteration is the repetition of part of an algorithm until a condition is met (if you're happy and you know it clap your hands, when you're no longer happy you stop clapping).

1) Design a function using a programming language that demonstrates abstraction.

Example: Create a program that utilizes functions in an effort remove repetitive sequences of steps.

Unpacked Content
Evidence Of Student Attainment:
Students will:
  • design a function that demonstrates the removal of repetitive sequence of steps.
Teacher Vocabulary:
  • function
  • abstraction
Knowledge:
Students know:
  • that a function can be called into a programming while abstracting out the details contained within the function.
Skills:
Students are able to:
  • create a function that can be called into a programming while leaving out the details contained within the function.
Understanding:
Students understand that:
  • abstraction is a way of hiding the details of a complex function and being able to quickly make use of the complexity that has been hidden abstraction by calling in the function.
