Programming and algorithms

- Sequencing instructions

- Giving unambiguous instructions

 

We have been giving our partners instructions to help them build Mr Potato Head. 

 

We we tested our instructions on our teacher and each other to see if they followed them as we expected. 

 

We we found that we have to give specific instructions so the potato parts end up the wrong way round, in the wrong place, the wrong colour or are wrong piece for the job.

Programming and algorithms 

 

We have been learning how to program humans to do different things. 

 

We had to give input like a tap on the head or a clap or a signal word to get output from our robot. 

 

They followed our sequence of instructions.
