Repetition and Loops Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #10

by Owen

Published on: Sun, Apr 5, 2015

Objective

To introduce the concept of repetition and show how this can be used in computer programs.

To learn that repetition is more commonly called a loop.

To learn the different types of loops; to introduce the pattern for a loop that repeats while a condition is true.

The class will practice loops by adapting the previous timesquestion program.

Creating these program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

If and Else Fix and Apply Teacher Notes

Lesson #9

by Owen

Published on: Sat, Apr 4, 2015

Objective

To extend the pupil’s knowledge of if selection statements by introducing the closely related if else statement.

The lesson also introduces the concepts of boolean, negation and not equals to.

The class will learn the pattern for an if else statement in Go.

The class will practice using an if else statement and see the effect with the timesquestion program.

Creating these program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Selection Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #8

by Owen

Published on: Fri, Apr 3, 2015

Objective

To learn what selection statements are and how to use them.

The class will learn that selection statements are how computer programs make decisions.

The class will learn the pattern for an if statement in Go.

The class will practice using an if statement and see the effect with the worldtemperature program.

Creating these program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Keyboard Input Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #7

by Owen

Published on: Thu, Apr 2, 2015

Objective

To learn how to use variables to read input from the keyboard.

The class will learn one pattern for reading strings and numbers that have been typed at the keyboard by the user.

The class will then practice these patterns with the hellostranger program.

Creating these program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

More Variables Fix and Apply Teacher Notes

Lesson #6

by Owen

Published on: Wed, Apr 1, 2015

Objective

To practice using the patterns for integer and string type variables in Go.

The objective is to get the class to write a Go program that use variables.

Creating these program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Variables Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #5

by Owen

Published on: Tue, Mar 31, 2015

Objective

The objective is to introduce the concept of a variable to the class.

The objective is to get the class to write a Go program to print strings to the terminal using the two different approaches that Go provides.

Creating this program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Further Words Fix and Adapt Teacher Notes

Lesson #4

by Owen

Published on: Wed, Mar 25, 2015

Objective

The objective is to reinforce the classes knowledge of strings and how they are printed in Go. This is achieved by correcting a program that will not run. This is used to introduce the concept of a syntax errors. Syntax errors are a prelude to debugging.

The example program will again require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Words Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #3

by Owen

Published on: Wed, Mar 25, 2015

Objective

The objective is to get the class to write a Go program to print strings to the terminal.

Creating this program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

More Numbers Fix and Apply Teacher Notes

Lesson #2

by Owen

Published on: Tue, Mar 17, 2015

Objective

The objective is to reinforce the class knowledge of numbers and simple sums in Go and to reinforce the skills needed to create and run a Go program.

The pupils are introduced to brackets and shown how to use them to group terms. The pupils are also introduced to the idea of operator precedence.

Creating this program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Numbers Teach and Try Teacher Notes

Lesson #1

by Owen

Published on: Tue, Mar 17, 2015

Objective

The objective is to get the class to write a Go program to solve simple mathematical problems. The program will only use addition (typed +), subtraction (typed -), multiplication (typed * not ×) and division (typed / not \ or ÷). Creating this program will require the class to use the text editor (either Atom or LiteIDE) to create and save the source code file and the terminal/command line to run their program.

Each subsequent lesson will require the class to use both the text editor and the terminal.
