Progression Step Statement

 

Computation is the foundation for our digital world.

 

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.
