Task 1, part 2

Give an example of a daily activity consisting of multiple steps that could be replaced by a function.

Setting up the student’s table for the lesson could be used as an example, and brain storming on what subjects could be used as ‘if then’ statements, eg, ‘if biology, then take textbook and paper, else if…’ would could be formed into a complex system that checks the subject to the algorithm then acts accordingly. Extending students could add public holiday or school event parameters to the pseudo-code.

    I like your idea – it reminded me of the mornings in a JP classroom getting themselves organized with the materials they need was a big part of morning self-organization. Turning it into a digital technologies activity makes it very relevant to them all. Great!
