Recap of Week 3

Recap what we've covered this week, and find out what's in store for you in Week 4.
This week we explored how pseudocode helps you plan scripts you want to write. We looked at different data types in Python, and you wrote a script to calculate how old you are in dog years. You rewrote nursery rhymes, and improved your debugging proficiency in another challenge.

  • How might these activities be of use to you in the classroom?
  • Will you use them directly with your students?

Tell us and your felllow learners what you’re planning in the comments.
