The development of algorithms
1 hour to 2 hours
Goal for students:
To become familiar with the development of an algorithm and the use of flowcharts and pseudo-code for describing an algorithm.
Prior knowledge needed to use/complete WebQuest:
* Students need to be able to use a computer on their own (mouse, keyboard, printing, on/off, etc)
* Students must be able to read and comprehend the text
* Students would already be familiar with the terms Input, Process and Output
* Students are familiar with the process of defining and analysing of problems on their own
Plan for illustrating WebQuest and providing explanation of task:
I demonstrate to the student how to navigate through the WebQuests on the Zunal Website. When I present this WebQuest for them to complete on their own, I would remind them that they should find everything they need on the WebQuest page, apart from the notes and class exercises I would pass out in the beginning of the lesson. I would also remind them to ask questions to their peers first before coming to me.
