Conditionals

Before we start conditionals lets review Sequence and Loops

Programming Flow Control Structures: The flow control structure is 3 ways that programers make computers do things.

  • Sequence refers to the order a code is written in often called order of events.
  • Conditionals Today we look at Conditionals. 
  • Loops repeated lines of code.

What is a conditional?

Conditions (conditional expressions) are the second of three basic flow control structures in programming. Like sequence, conditions influence a computer program’s decision-making process.

“Condiionals are If, then” Statements

PastedGraphic-1

Also known as “if, then” logic statements, conditions enable a computer program to act differently each time it is executed; depending on if an input is evaluated to be either true or false.

In a programming language, conditions are classic “if, then” logic statements and possess both a hypothesis and conclusion.

What is a hypothesis: It is an educated Guess. You predict what will happen (conclusion) based on what you observe.

Hypothesis: If I have the proper ingredients for my sandwich… .

Conclusion: Then I can make my sandwich

Why are conditions important?

Conditional statements are important to any computer program because they enable programmers to develop more dynamic programs. What makes computer programs so great is that they can interact with the user. Without conditions, this type of interaction would be impossible.

Evaluating Conditional Expressions

In order to prepare our peanut butter and jelly sandwich, we had to evaluate ( judge) whether or not the necessary conditions were met as we went through

our algorithm. If any of these conditions were evaluated to be false, then our peanut butter and jelly sandwich could not be made.

The exact same principles apply when using conditions in computer programming:

Simple Conditions: Passwords

A classic example of a simple condition is a password. A password secures your computer and all of your personal information. When a user enters a password, the program needs to evaluate this input, and check whether or not the password entered matches the correct one saved for the user.

Hypothesis:

If the user input matches the password stored in the database…

Conclusion:

then the user can access their profile and personal information.

Rules

A rule is a set of guidelines in a programming language that instruct a computer program what operations to execute or perform. For example, the rule in a password program is to never let users access secured and private data.

Conditions modify programs and are rule breakers, or exceptions, to the rule.

For example, we would create a condition for a password program that would enable specific users to access their secured information.

Hypothesis:

If a user input matches the password stored in the database…

Conclusion:

…then the user can access their secured profile/information.

GOOGLE DOODLE REMIX

LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE GOOGLE DOODLE AGAIN

GOOGLE REMIX MOVIES https://csfirst.withgoogle.com/c/cs-first/en/create-your-own-google-logo/create-your-own-google-logo/create-your-own-google-logo.html

TAKE A LOOK AT THE MOVIES AND CHOOSE ONE OR MORE OF THESE CODES TO APPLY TO THE GOOGLE DOODLE.


Ms. Cook’s Class

So far for our come code with me day we have reviewed and planned 3 stations.

STATION 1

Makey Makey set up as vote for your favorite fruit station

Wire Makey Makey and the basics of circuits with parents.

TELL THEM WE LEARNED ABOUT CIRCUITS,

1 CIRCUIT NEED A POWER SOURCE THAT CREATES AN ……..

2 …..ELECTRON FLOW,

3. TEH ELECTRON NEED …….

4. A PATH INTO THE LOAD

5. THE LOAD THEN NEEDS A PATH FOR THE ELECTRONS TO FLOW BACK INTO THE POWER SOURCE.

MAKEY MAKEY TAKES THE CIRCUIT OUTSIDE THE COMPUTER AND MAKES YOU AND A CONDUCTIVE ITEM PART OF THE CIRCUIT. YOU CAN CONTROL THE COMPUTER BY TOUCHING THE CONDUCTIVE ITEM. TWO SUBSTANCES ARE CONDUCTIVE METALS AND WATER . THE REAON YOU CAN BECOME PART OF THE CIRCUIT IS YOU ARE MADE OF 98 PERCENT WATER. HAVE THE PARENT SETUP THE MAKEY MAKEY USING THE HAND OVER HAND METHOD.

STATION TWO

OZOBOTS;: HERE WE WILL SHOW WHAT THESE OPTICAL ROBOTS CAN DO

DRAW YOUR NAME ON THE IPAD. DRAW YOUR NAME ON PAPER MAKE A TRACK ON THE IPAD

OZOBLOCKLY CODE AND CONTROL THESE MINI ROBOTS WITH AN IOS DEVICE. HAVE VISITORS WRITE THE CODE IN OZOBLOCKLY WRITE A CODE AND SEND IT TO THE DEVICE AN RUN THE CODE AND CONTROL THE ROBOT.

GOOGLE DOODLE

CREATE AND MODIFY THE GOOGLE DOODLE USING SCRATCH. Introduce parents to the world of scratch. Block Code to create anything you want. Take the through the Google Doodle.

We will choose our final station when we get back from break
