Python List Practice Problems

(0)
A couple of my Python students were having trouble with lists in Python, so I wrote this worksheet to have them work on in class. I think it could be a good homework sheet as well. It goes over lists, type casting, ascii, and uses the basic math operations (+,-,/,*). The zip file includes the following documents Python List Practice Problems.pdf, Python List Practice Problems.docx, and python_list_practice_problems.py. I used python 3.6.3, but any 3.X version should work (it will work with Python 2 with only minimal changes (if you buy it and want Python 2, just let me know and I can make the changes for you).

I am running a special Christmas holiday web development class, so I needed to make a worksheet for it. This worksheet isn’t too long, but it’s a good review of the basics of HTML and CSS. Included is an answer key, and also two versions of the same worksheet. One was designed for higher level students, and one for younger students. I teach two different age groups for this class, so I needed an easier one.

Newsela Article Writing Worksheet

(0)
This sheet was designed to be used with newsela.com material. I have students read an article, then answer the questions on the worksheet. It is useful for encouraging students to read an article analytically. I also have students list new words that they don’t know, so that later I can make sure to review these words. Including reading time (which can vary) I estimate most my students spend about 30 minutes on this worksheet.
Introductory Arduino Quiz

Introductory Arduino Quiz

(0)
This is a quiz I made for my Arduino students. It’s not very long, but it does test if a student has a good understanding of the Arduino basics. I would say it takes an average student around 10-15 minutes to do. So, I recommend using this as more of a pop-quiz. Included: 1 .docx file which includes the quiz and answer key, and 1 .pdf file which includes the same. Note: You will need the ability to open zip files to use this. If you are unable to that, you can message me after buying and I will send you the files individually.

Though, it does encourage them to use other variable types, and there are multiple right answers. There are 6 questions which cover variables, and a little bit of how output works in Java. Note: You will need the ability to open .docx files to use this product. Included is a total of 4 pages, including the answer key.

Simple Machines Word Scramble

(0)
This is a word scramble I use with my 1st - 3rd grade students who are learning about simple machines. I have used this in my English classes (when we learn science vocabulary), and for my lego SPM class where we learn engineering concepts. It is not a very difficult word scramble, but it’s good for practicing simple machines, and should take around 15-20 minutes to do. Note: You will need the ability to open .zip files (which almost all computers can do), inside are 4 files. The worksheet and the answer key in the following formats .docx and .pdf.
Coding and Computer Science Word Searches

Coding and Computer Science Word Searches

(0)
I created these 6 computer science and coding word searches to help my students learn programming vocabulary. I also thought it was a fun C.S. unplugged activity. Included inside are 6 word searches which are all using different vocabulary words (besides one overlap). They vary a lot in which words were chosen, I chose the words based on which come up most in my class. Inside are pdf and .docx versions of each word search. You also will need the ability to open .zip files.
Scratch Coding Matching Game

Scratch Coding Matching Game

(0)
A matching game I play with my younger students to help them remember where each Scratch block is. I removed the colors from the blocks, so they have to try and work together to figure out which category a block belongs under, and then (if they want), color the block the proper color. The files included are a .pdf and .docx of the game, and also a .pdf and .docx file of the answer key sheet. You need a program capable of opening either one of these file types.
C++ Coding Beginner Programming Assignment: Make a Morse Code Encoder
donald_buhlbrowndonald_buhlbrown

C++ Coding Beginner Programming Assignment: Make a Morse Code Encoder

(0)
A great programming assignment for entry level C++ students who have learned about arrays and strings. I begin by teaching a simple example of a ROT-13 cypher since a similar algorithm can be used to solve both problems. This gets students very comfortable with C++ array syntax, and parallel arrays. You can also use this to make sure students are comfortable with the different data types in C++. Product Info: You will need the ability to extract zip files to use this product, it comes with a PDF and .docx of the programming assignment, and also includes two C++ solutions. One which is the basic solution, and one which is the solution to the extra challenges. The code for the extra challenges is commented. I coded this using Visual Studio, but besides the “system(‘pause’);” code it should work on other operating systems.

Note: You will need the ability to open .zip files, and .pdf or .docx files. Any modern computer can open these files, but if you have any issues with it. You can message me and I will do my best to help you.

I decided to create a harder version of my original HTML & CSS worksheet. This one adds in form elements, and requires some conceptual knowledge of languages like PHP. This is great for students who are beyond the basics of HTML & CSS, and need a bit more of a challenge. Included is a .pdf and .docx of the worksheet. An answer key is also included. You will need the ability to open .zip files to access the files.

This worksheet covers converting binary numbers to denary (decimal) numbers, and also converting denary numbers to binary numbers. There are also a few short write in questions as well to test general binary number / computer data storage concepts. I would estimate this should take your students about 30 minutes. Files Included IGCSE Computer Science Binary Review Worksheet.pdf IGCSE Computer Science Binary Review Worksheet.docx Note: You will need the ability to open either .pdf files or .docx files. You also will need the ability to open .zip files. Any modern computer can open .zip files by default, but if you have any issues please leave a comment and I will do my best to help you.

Minecraft - Command Block Assignment

Minecraft - Command Block Assignment

(0)
This is designed as a take home assignment for students learning programming through Minecraft. I tried to make it in a way that it can be used for students of varying age. I used Scriptcraft with this assignment, but mostly any Minecraft server should work. Note: You must be using a custom Minecraft server of some kind to use command blocks, so I would recommend only buying this if you are.
