RS – Unit 9 Nested Conditions

RS - Unit 9 Nested Conditions

Janeal Tyler, Computer Science Teacher

In this unit students will combine what they have learned about Ozobots and Micro:Bit Smart cars to create more complex programs integrating nested conditional statements. So that they can explain the basics of artificial intelligence and how the innovations they have learned about might evolve.


At the beginning of every topic, students are STRONGLY encouraged to write down all of the vocabulary words, definitions, and key concepts found in the concept folders. These notes will help students a lot to complete assignments and tests.


Students are learning how to:

  • Illustrate ways computing systems implement logic, input, and output through hardware components.
  • Use data analysis tools and techniques to identify patterns in data representing complex systems.
  • Describe how artificial intelligence drives many software and physical systems.
  • Use and adapt classic algorithms to solve computational problems.
  • Predict how computational innovations that have revolutionized aspects of our culture might evolve

Students are learning about these things so that they can:

  • Develop a better understanding of how infrared light works.
  • Program different infrared sensors to execute new and unique programs.
  • Create more complex programs integrating nested conditional statements.
  • Explain the basics of artificial intelligence and how the innovations I have learned about might evolve.

Students will know they are successful when they get a perfect score on the following assignments (Keep in mind they have unlimited redos):

  • ONC – Question of the Day Discussion 10 pts Due 5/5
  • ONC – Commit to Learning 11 pts Due 5/5
