Today we started a conversation. We asked the question, "What makes a computer a computer?" The students created posters categorizing different, everyday items labeling them as computers or not. We then defined computers as things that take input, process and store data, and output new information.
Here are the best looking posters of the day.
Review the problem solving process that we were introduced to the other week. Try applying it to a problem of your choosing.
Use the problem solving process in the activity below.
I will be posting after most assignments so that students who are absent can follow along at home and students who want to extend their learning will have a chance.
