All the key terms given

Theory summary (Does not include all theory)

 

You need to know how to convert text to binary and back. (The ASCII table)

You need to know how to convert numbers to binary using both methods

You need to know how to convert images to binary and back.

You need to know how to convert sound to binary and back.

 

As You notice some of what you need to is a repetition of the last half term. I will not ask you any theoretical questions about converting numbers and text. You will only need to know how to convert them. This does not apply for images and sound. For this you will need to know both the theory as well as application.

Good afternoon year 8,

I have corrected your homework. The work is incomplete in many of your books. I have noticed that many of you just wrote down the answers without trying it for yourself. If you do not understand how to properly execute pseudocode you will not succeed in programming.

You need to consider the right indentations

You need to consider your capital letters

And you need to consider your loops

I will come to school on Monday for the pupils who need extra help. Please see me during the lunch break. You will be in charge of your own learning. Lesson 1 and lesson 2 will go towards your GPA. If you do not do any corrections you homework as well as classwork grade will be a 0. If you know that you did not do the work on your own do it again, as I will know who attempted it and who did not.

This week’s homework:

Create a pseudocode for getting to school on time

Rewrite the pseudocode with an if statement: If you miss the buss you need to wait for the next bus to come.

Rewrite second pseudocode and include a while loop for walking. See lesson 2 example of the game and picking up coins.

I need to see 3 different pseudocodes in your books.

I need to see corrections with green ink of lesson 1 and lesson 2

The work needs to be completed by the next class.

Regards,

Ms. Brewster
