Computational thinking and Coding

This week we had to make a grid in word and write instructions on how to make the grid. This was quite confusing at first but after about 2-3 minutes of figuring it out, it was easy.

Computational thinking is a way of solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior that draws on concepts fundamental to computer science.

An algorithm is a procedure or formula for solving a problem.

In class this week we used a few coding programs, i used the Code Monster. i found this very difficult to understand. It was just too complicated, the program didn’t make sense. i did sit there and try to figure it out with a few people on my table, but we just gave up in the end.

Also today in class we played a little game on the internet where we had to identify the internal parts of a computer. i had a few tries of this and in the end i got most of them right. It was quite difficult and i would not use this program in my classroom.
