LIGHTBOT

WE ARE WORKING ON LIGHT BOT CODING APP. THE THING THAT I LOVE ABOUT THE LIGHTBOT APP IS IT REALLY EXERCISES STUDENTS DEBUGGING AND TROUBLE SHOOTING SKILLS.

THE OTHER THING IS IT CLEARLY GIVES A WORK OUT IN THE THREE FLOW CONTROL STRUCTURES OF CODING

SEQUENCE REFERS TO THE ORDER IN WHICH WE DO THINGS. IF A CODE IS NOT IN THE RIGHT ORDER THE ALGORITHM WILL NOT RUN OR AT LEAST GIVE THE DESIRED OUTCOME

LOOPS ARE SHORTENED CODES THAT CAN BE REPEATED BY WRITING A MUCH SHORTER CODE THE ORIGINAL CODE WRITTEN AGAIN AND AGAIN.

CONDITONALS. ARE ” IF AND THEN” STATEMENTS. THEY ARE CAUSAL IF I DO THIS THEN THAT HAPPENS.

WE ARE WORKING ON SEQUENCE AND SOME WILL BEGIN LOOPS TODAY IN THIS APP

IN LIGHT BOT LOOPS ARE CALLED PROCEDURES AND YOU CREATE THEM IN A SEPARATE CODING SPACE CALLED P1.
