Module 8: Variables
Storing and Using Information as Variables
Purpose: Students will learn to create variables and store values as variables to use them in mathematical calculations, expressions, and drawing geometric shapes.
Lesson Goals: I can...
Activity 1: Calculating Area and Perimeter
Students explore how variables can be used in numerical calculations by modifying a program and adding a calculation for perimeter.
Activity 2: Drawing Geometric Shapes
Students use variables as inputs (arguments) to blocks to draw geometric shapes.
Students create a new project that uses variables in a manner of their choice.
