Progression Steps


I can follow algorithms to determine their purpose and predict outcomes.


I can use conditional statements to add control and decision-making to algorithms.


I can identify repeating patterns and use loops to make my algorithms more concise.


I can explain and debug algorithms.


I can use sensors and actuators in systems that gather and process data about the systems’ environment.


I can select and use multiple sensors and actuators that allow computer systems to interact with the world around them.
