For todays lesson you will be reading about a specific Native American Design concepts that has an accompanying software tool to make designs.
1. Read all the pages about "Cultural Background" of the concept, write notes in your journal notebooks.
In your journal talk about the culture of the designs and the connection to mathematics
2. Create 3 designs using that concepts design tool software and take screen shots of your designs
(Screen shot: Command-Shift-4, then draw a box around the design)
Computers 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 22, 25, 28, 31 you will study the Virtual Bead Loom

*if there is time everyone can try learn aboutthe culture and design of Grafitti
Exploring Computer Science (ECS)
The goal of Exploring Computer Science is to develop in students the computational thinking practices of algorithm development, problem solving and programming. Students will also be introduced to topics such as interface design, limits of computers and societal and ethical issues.
