Brain Pop Variables

Watch the BrainPOP movie on Variables
Var-oom! Variables are the key to making coding more efficient. These handy labels help programmers store important bits of information in coding languages like JavaScript. Declare a value for the variable; then access it anytime just by typing the variable’s name. No more repeating long strings of text! You can name variables anything you want, and add, remove, or modify values to suit your needs. But it’s not a total free-for-all. As with all coding, a bug can freeze a program in its tracks if instructions aren’t written in the right order.

A variable, in the context of programming, is a symbolic name given to an unknown quantity that permits the name to be used independently of the information it represents. Variables are associated with data storage locations, and values of a variable are normally changed during the course of program execution. Variables represent all kinds of data,

Computational Thinking

 Brain Pop Movie On Computational Thinking

An algorithm

is a list of steps that you can follow to finish a task. We follow algorithms every day when it comes to activities like making the bed, making breakfast, or even getting dressed in the morning.

Write an algorithm here for something you do in your life. If you changed the order would your program “run”?

Debugging

is the process of finding the part of your code that does not work. You go through the code you have written and look for the mistake in the code.

 

Persistence

Is when you attempt something it does not work and then you examine what you have done and try again.  Persistence is when you fail and it does not stop you no matter how many times you fail.
