LIVE Code - Focus on Pattern Recognition (Grade 4-6)
Rating

"In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of pattern recognition.

Pattern Recognition occurs when you can identify patterns. When you identify patterns, you can create rules that allow actions to be repeated automatically. Pattern recognition can also improve how quickly a problem can be solved."

The teacher's guide walks you through exactly how to use the broadcast in your classroom.

As part of their reporting process, they are required to report on participation and impact of our programs. If you could please take a moment to complete the following short survey with your students, it would be greatly appreciated.

LIVE Code - Testing and Evaluating: Grades 4-6
Rating

In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of testing and evaluating.

Testing involves trying something and observing what happens.Evaluation is about using critical thinking and judgment to determine if a set of criteria are met. If not, then correction or improvement may be required. Computer programming tends to be an interactive process in which testing and evaluating are constantly occurring.

A teacher guide is also included.

Live Code with Let's Talk Science - Abstraction: Grades 4-6
Rating

"In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of abstraction.

Abstraction reduces how hard a problem or task is by focusing on what's important. We do that by deciding what the important information is and then removing all the unnecessary details. Abstraction is also used when we want to have one object or word stand for an action."

The teacher's guide is available to download from this link as well.
