Scratch Maths Quiz Selection
This Barefoot Computing resource for upper-primary computing lessons uses the creation of a Scratch maths quiz as a basis for learning about algorithms using selection.
Children are asked to create an algorithm that mirrors the quiz given orally by the teacher. Once they have developed the algorithm it is programmed using Scratch – either online or offline.
This collaborative tasks involves many of the concepts and approaches of computational thinking, and is suitable for children with some prior experience of Scratch programming. The resource includes Scratch files to aid both the main and extension tasks.
Formal and informal assessment of understanding and programming skills are well suited to this task.
