3 classes before Winter Break
No power / no internet today
Offline activity: Work with Tangrams to illuminate the value of Algorithms, directions, and listening.
Algorithm - a series of steps we use to complete a task
Ask if everyone has used Tangrams
Have everyone cut out their tangrams
Break into groups of 4
Everyone in the group gets a card
They take turns describing a single card to the rest of their groupmates. Can they build the shape correctly?
Make a new shape. What various steps can we use to describe?
Can you come up with new mystery shape, and have the rest of the class duplicate it correctly?
Do the assessment sheet
Discuss the answers
If you keep an algorithm simple there are lots of ways to use it. (an arrow, a pyramid, a rocket ship)
If you want to make sure everyone ends up with the same thing, then your algorithm needs more detail.
