These sequence of videos cover variables (data storage), calculations, some elements of good programming practice, decision making with the IF statement, boolean logic and the significance of zero.
- Concepts: Storing information, manipulating and making decisions on it.
- Skills: Apply fundamental programming constructs
Resources required: Computer workstation – it’s not strictly necessary to download these exercises to the micro:bit.
Pre-requisites: The knowledge & skills from the first session
The scripts are shared if you wish to tinker with them yourself:
- Variables – intro
- Variables – temperature conversion
- The IF statement
- Boolean logic
- Numbers start at 0
The boolean logic & numbers start at 0 aren’t strictly necessary if time is short.
