Yesterday in computing we learned about what an algorithm is. We found out an algorithm is a set of precise instructions or rules to solve a problem, and that computers often use them to carry out a tasks.
We had a go at writing our own precise algorithms for our partner to follow. First we designed a crazy monster. Then we had to write precise, numbered instructions about how to draw it. After that, we read out out instructions and our partner followed them. We compared our original monster with our partner’s and decided which parts of the instructions we needed to improve.
Here are some of your crazy monsters and algorithms:
