Write your own definition of Computational Thinking (in your own words).
7th Grade Below 8th Grade: Globaloria
I CAN…examine (look at; inspect) the algorithm functions then sort (organize) and sequence (put in order; put in a series) wood blocks by classification (categorizes).
1. Finish Computational Thinking from yesterday.
2. As a class discuss Algorithms: A set of calculations, instructions or rules that a computer would use to solve a problem.
3. You and your partner will follow the directions here: L2_Sorting Machines
4. Then you will sort cards using algorithms. Recreate some of the sorting algorithms from this youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/Shishberg/videos
