  1. 1.14 Project: Your First Website
  2. 12.8 Project: The Effects of the Internet
Remove background details from an everyday process to highlight essential properties. Examples: When making a sandwich, the type of bread, condiments, meats, and/or vegetables do not affect the fact that one is making a sandwich.
  1. 2.6 Top Down Design and Decomposition in Karel
Define a process as a function. Example: Functions or sets of steps combined to produce a process: turning off your alarm + getting out of bed + brushing your teeth + getting dressed = morning routine.

  7. 2.14 More Karel Examples and Testing
  8. 2.16 Karel Challenges
  9. 3.8 Functions
Create pseudocode that uses conditionals. Examples: Using if/then/else (If it is raining then bring an umbrella else get wet).

  8. 3.17 If/ Else Statements
Differentiate between flowcharts and pseudocode. Example: Flowcharts use shapes to indicate what to do at each step while pseudocode uses text.
  1. 2.6 Top Down Design and Decomposition in Karel
Identify algorithms that make use of sequencing, selection or iteration. Examples: Sequencing is doing steps in order (put on socks, put on shoes, tie laces); selection uses a Boolean condition to determine which of two parts of an algorithm are used (hair is dirty? True, wash hair; false, do not); iteration is the repetition of part of an algorithm until a condition is met (if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, when you’re no longer happy you stop clapping).

  6. 3.2 Tracy's Grid World
  7. 3.3 Turning Tracy
  8. 3.4 For Loops
  9. 3.14 Using i in For Loops
  10. 3.15 Extended Loop Control
  11. 3.16 If Statements
  12. 3.17 If/ Else Statements
  13. 3.18 While Loops
  14. 3.19 Putting Together Control Structures
Identify steps in developing solutions to complex problems using computational thinking.
  1. 2.6 Top Down Design and Decomposition in Karel
  2. 2.13 Control Structures Example
  3. 2.14 More Karel Examples and Testing
  4. 2.16 Karel Challenges
  5. 3.10 Top Down Design
Describe how automation works to increase efficiency. Example: Compare the amount of time/work to hand wash a car vs. using an automated car wash.
Create a program that initializes a variable. Example: Create a flowchart in which the variable or object returns to a starting position upon completion of a task.
  1. 3.11 Variables
Differentiate between a secure and a non-secure website including how they affect personal data. Example: HTTP vs. HTTPS.
  1. 12.3 Internet Addresses
  2. 12.5 Routing

Differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate digital content and the use of that content.
Define digital permanence.
Define personal privacy, digital footprint, and open communication.
Discuss digital globalization and Internet censorship. Examples: Software that scans a website for posts about potential threats; a person’s ability to order a product directly from a manufacturer in another part of the world; a student in Africa can take an online math course created in the United States; web-hosting company prevents posting of content.
