  2. We are going to schedule a formative quiz in python coding for everyone; objective 6,7,8 and 9

    1. We will review objective 9 and begin objective 10
  4. If you are more comfortable with Python

Our Big idea

The big idea for today is Programming.

The essential questions for this topic are:

How do we plan, write, execute, and test instructions a computer can understand and process?

It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to
learn more about programming (which is connected to today's daily note), please click here .

We are learning this because as a designers must understand scientific and technical innovation. Designers use systems, models, methods, and processes to solve problems.
