5-6 How computer games are made

Check Resource
Over 5-6 weeks, students will explore algorithms that are used to design computer games. They will design and implement a simple interactive game that keeps score. Curriculum Links * ACTDIP010: Define simple problems, and describe and follow a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve them (Year 3-4) * ACTDIK014: Investigate the main components of common digital systems, their basic functions and interactions, and how such digital systems may connect together to form networks to transmit data *ACTDIP018: Design a user interface for a digital system, generating and considering alternative designs *ACTDIP019: Design, modify and follow simple algorithms represented diagrammatically and in English involving sequences of steps, branching, and iteration (repetition) * ACTDIP020: Implement digital solutions as simple visual programs involving branching, iteration (repetition), and user input * ACTDIP022: Manage the creation and communication of ideas and informatio
