Making Decisions: Students learn how to use if-else statements and while loops to instruct Tracy to make decisions based on conditions.
Tracy Challenges: Students put together all of the concepts they have learned to solve advanced Tracy puzzles.

Unit Description
Supplemental Challenges:
Categorizing Triangles: Explore how we can use a computer to perform calculations and make decisions based on user input! You will use Turtle Graphics in Python to draw a triangle and write text to the screen and then use if/else statements, variables, functions, and mathematical, logical, and comparison operators to print the resulting triangle category.
Additional Topics:
Karel in Python: Karel is a dog that only knows how to move, turn left, and place tennis balls in his world. You can give Karel these commands to instruct him to do certain things. We use Karel to show you what it means to program, and allow you to focus on problem-solving.
