CODING IN THE CLASSROOM
Algorithms using Peanut Butter & Jam Sandwiches
Below is the information for the morning Algorithms activity:
For this 10 minute introduction activity, you should:
Join Breakout Room #3 to be with others doing this activity first.
Try and write up the explicit steps that would be needed to tell a computer how to make a peanut butter and jam sandwich.
Discuss the steps with some others in the breakout room.
Watch the embedded video.
Think about how you could use this in a classroom:
Could it be a good activity to spark discussion with students?
Could it be a good introductory activity for students?
What are the connections that you see to coding and computer science?
How could you adapt it and what could make it better? What are the drawbacks/issues with an activity like this?
Use the Breakout Room to discuss this activity with your peers.
