CS 1150 Programming Environments for Elementary Education

J. Philip East (Spring 2017)

What's New?

April 13   We are working on robotics activity, either the Dash robot or the Lego EV3 robot. You will be expected to recreate some of the suggested activities on the final exam. We have started on one robot and will swap off next Tuesday.

April 11   I have updated and posted an anonymized version of the grade book. Note that the score for Exam II is reported but not included in the exam score total—there were errors on the exam that made it unusable (in my opinion).

Course Text

At the moment, I do not plan to formally adopt a text. I will ask you to read a couple manuals/tutorials on NetLogo.
