Let's try below (use Active Inspire to annotate over desktop):
Does order matter when you are writing an algorithm?
We can write algorithms for many of the things we do every day. Let's list a few:
How to make breakfast
How to make a Loom bracelet
How to brush your teeth
How to plant a flower
Your group will need: 1 pencil 1 Paper Airplane Worksheet 2 plain pieces of paper 1 pair of scissors 1 glue stick
Pair Directions: 1. Each pair needs to cut out all of the dotted lined squares found on the Paper Airplane Worksheet. 2. Decide which six images will be used in giving the steps to make a paper airplane (discard the others and the scrap). 3. Place the squares in correct order as if giving someone directions on how to build a paper airplane. 4. Glue the images in order onto one of the plain pieces of paper. 5. Write your names on that paper. 6. Consider numbering the steps with your pencil. 7. Switch steps (algorithms) with another group as directed by your teacher. 8. Use your second piece of blank paper to follow the algorithm created by the other group to build a paper airplane. 9. Evaluate the other group's algorithm. 10. On the back of the algorithm paper, write down the questions you would need to ask to evaluate the other group's algorithm and what steps (if any) need to be taken to correct and/or improve the algorithm. Tell why you think these corrections/additions are necessary and/or helpful.
