Featuring Bee, this lesson focuses on
for loops and using an incrementing variable to solve more complicated puzzles. Students will begin by reviewing loops from previous lessons, then they'll walk through an introduction to
for loops so they can more effectively solve complicated problems.
for loops, are a very important topic in computer science. Not only are they widely used, but the process of learning
for loops enhances the learning of other important concepts (such as variables and parameters). Students will have plenty of practice critically thinking through problems by determining the starting, ending, and stepping values for each
for loop. This concept uses plenty of math as well, so feel free to pair it with a math lesson for an even deeper learning experience.
Students will be able to:
- determine starting value, stopping value, and stepping value for a `for` loop.
- recognize when to use a `for` loop and when to use other loops such as `repeat` and `while` loops.
