Pseudo Code and the Engineering Design Process

Grades: Other, 9th Grade, 4th Grade
Subjects: Computer Science, Science, Math

Student Instructions

Pseudo Code is the PLAN for your Programs. Engineering Design Process is used to Design Programs too! Pseudo Code is a simple way of writing programming code in English. Pseudo Code is not actual programming language. It uses short phrases to write code for programs before you actually create it in a specific language. Once you know what the program is about and how it will function, then you can use Pseudo Code to create statements to achieve the required results for your program. Listen and Think about the Example Attached; How Pseudo Code and the Engineering Design Process work together? Using the Student Template Journal WRITE your own Pseudo Block Code using the Drag and Drop Tool crated in seesaw Reflect on the Questions about the outcome using any seesaw tools that you choose.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Pseudo Code is hos Programmers use the Engineering Design Process. While the Block Language on this activity is UKit's "Dialect" of Block Code, it can easily be used to implement other "Dialects" of Block Code. (IE: Scratch, LEGO, etc) The Thought Process and Application are the SAME.
