Adventures in Computational Thinking By Mandy Huey Computational Thinking This course is about building skills in multiple computer applications, including MS Excel, Power. Point, and Word. It also encompasses webpage programming using HTML and Java. Script, and writing basic code in Python. Making Info Available with HTML and Web Pages We created webpages using HTML and CSS. We learned proper formatting and style for coding. We also created a webpage that links to all of our projects throughout the quarter. Presentation with MS Power. Point We used the functionalities of MS Power. Point to create a cohesive presentation. We complemented themes with graphs from Excel to create a visual presentation. IDLE Programming with Python We learned basic programming in Python, mainly based off loop and conditions. For example, we created a program that prompted the user with questions about when they were available. Desktop Publishing with MS Word We learned different formatting techniques in MS Word to organize our documents better. It also made them more appealing to look at. We then uploaded the PDF file to the page with all of our projects to preserve the format of the documents. Data Analysis & Visualization with MS Excel We learned how to use formulas and various Excel functions to analyze and organize information. This is much easier than doing it manually. We then used the graphical components of Excel to visually represent the data. Webpage Programming with Java. Script We combined our HTML, CSS, and Java. Script knowledge to create dynamic programs. For example, we created the Black Jack game where the player plays against the dealer using randomized numbers.
