Student Instructions

Look at the code dictionary. Make sure you know what each code means. Click the add button to open the template Watch the video. When you are done, go to the next page. Get 4 cups Follow the algorithm to build a cup stack. Use the photo to take a picture of your cup stack. On the next page make use the move tool to rearrange the symbols to make your own cup stack algorithm for me. Your stack must use at least 3 cups. Your stack should have no more than 6 cups. Just be sure to tell how many cups I will need. You don't have to use all the symbols in your algorithm. Delete the extra symbols or move them out of the way. Remember you can click view directions if you need another look at the code dictionary. Click the draft to save this for later. Click the check when you are done. I will follow your algorithm and take a picture of the cup stack I built following your directions. You can add extra pages if you wish to continue making more algorithms.
