Teaching problem solving the unplugged way
This resource contains a variety of activities and teacher resources to help students develop their problem solving skills, these are mostly through the use of unplugged activities which also encourage the development of skills associated with creating algorithms. The resources consist of teacher guides for each of the five resources, and an associated resource for use in the classroom. The activities include:
- Stompy Zombie Robots: a Logo like activity
- Binary Bingo: students apply the algorithm to convert denary numbers to binary
- Getting the Message Across: which describes routing algorithms and networks, using flowcharts to describe dances
- Binary Bead Bracelets: which uses binary to encode messages in chains of two colour beads
