5 Extra Credit Points Each

Part 1: Complete Tynker lessons 1-11

  • Tynker is a visual programming language that uses drag-n-drop logic blocks to teach you programming concepts and provides step-by-step instructions.
  • The sequencing skills will help you think like a programmer.
  • Learning these skills visually will make it easier for you to transition to Scratch (a similar block coding program) and eventually "write" in coding languages such as Javascript and Python.
  • Each lesson completed in Tynker is work 5 extra credit points.
  • You must complete the entire lesson.
  • Moodle message me once you complete a lesson to receive points or if you're having any problems.
  • If you have already completed one or more of these lessons, you do not need to re-do it. You already have credit for that lesson and will not receive additional credit for re-doing it.

Logic Gate Examples

AND: If both A & B are true, the output (C) is true!

  • I like pizza (true) AND ice cream (true) = output is true
  • I like liver (not true) and pizza (true) = output is not true
OR Gate: If A OR B are true OR if both A AND B are true, the output (C) is true!

  • I like pizza (true) AND ice cream (true) = output is true
  • I like liver (not true) and pizza (true) = output is true (only 1 needs to be true)
NOT Gate: If A is NOT True, B is True!

  • I like liver (not true). I like pizza (true because liking liver (input A) is not true)
