Before you start writing any code, you need to have a plan for it, also called an algorithm. And you must design it step by step, so computers have a clear understanding of the tasks you want them to do!
An algorithm is a set of instructions given in the correct order to help you find the solution to a specific problem.
Do you know how we like algorithms to be? Simple and easy to follow! So, remember! When you want to communicate with us, brainstorm a few different ideas — it's always good to have several options to choose the best solution!
Now that you know what algorithms are, we'd like to share with you this story about how we teach our robot to give real hugs!
You can print this story at home and read it while cuddling up in bed. Or share it in class with your students on the screen.
Remember! Understanding computers is a SUPERPOWER. So, keep on learning! See you in the next episode!
Lots of Megas from The Binary World,
PS. In this other episode, we talked about code errors, and we read a story about a soup with lots of bugs! Check out the episode what is a bug?
