Introduction Cambridge ICT Starters: Next Steps, Stage 2 has been written to support learners who are following the Cambridge ICT Starters syllabus. It follows the syllabus closely and provides full coverage of all the modules. The sections of the book correspond to the modules and follow the order in which the modules appear in the syllabus. The book builds on writing and modifying commands to produce pictures and designs; searching, retrieving and storing internet information; setting up and managing an email account in order to compose, edit, read and respond to emails; and creating and organising multimedia presentations. The book provides learners and their helpers with: •

examples of activities to do

•

exercises for practice

•

instruction in using their computers

•

optional extension and challenge activities

It is designed for use in the classroom with coaching from trained teachers. Where possible the work has been set in real situations where the computer will be of direct use. The activities are fairly sophisticated yet simple enough to be followed by adults as well as children! Some exercises require the learners to open prepared files for editing. These files are available to teachers on www.cambridgeindia.org website. The website provides useful graphics and templates for creating pictograms. Some pictures and text files are also included to help young learners so that they can learn editing without first creating the files required.

The activities in this book use Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2007 software, Microsoft Outlook Express 2007, Microsoft Internet Explorer and MSWLogo. However, the syllabus does not specify any particular type of software in order to meet the learning objectives. Please note that when learners view the screen shots contained in this book on their computer screens, all the type will be clearly legible.

5.1 Exploring control

Learning Objective: 1

MSWLogo Click Click

to open the Start menu. .

Click . Use the commander to give instructions to the screen turtle. Enter to After typing each command, tap execute the command. To make the turtle move forward 100 units, type fd 100. To make the turtle move forward 77 units, type fd 77. To make the turtle turn 90째 to the right, type rt 90. To make the turtle turn 45째 to the left, type lt 45. Put a space between the command and the number.

Type your instructions here.

Penup and pendown Click Type:

to start a new blank page. fd 30 penup

Type:

fd 30 pendown

Type:

fd 50 penup fd 10 pendown fd 20

Type: CT CT will clear all the texts in the commander box. Type: CS CS will clear the screen. It has the same effect as . 2

Exploring Control

Penup stops the pen drawing.

Pendown starts the pen drawing again.

Learning Objective: 1

Square Type the following list of commands to draw a square with sides of 100 units: fd 100 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 fd l00 rt 90

• Type the command penup. • Move your turtle to a new position using the fd command. • Type the command pendown. • raw another square with sides of 150 units. • Write down the list of commands that you used to create the new square: ____________________________________ ____________________________________ ____________________________________ ____________________________________ ____________________________________

Rectangle Type the following list of commands to draw a rectangle with width 100 and length 150 units: fd l00 rt 90 fd l50 rt 90 fd 100 rt 90 fd l50 rt 90 Type the command penup. Move your turtle to a new position using the fd command. Type the command pendown. raw another rectangle with width 70 and length 170 units. Write the list of commands you used: ___________________________________

The sum of the interior (60°) and the exterior (120°) angles equals to 180°.

iscuss and write down how you would draw a regular triangle with each side 130 units and each interior angle 60° (i.e. exterior angle 120°): ____________________________________ ____________________________________ ____________________________________

5.2 Turtle repeats

Learning Objective: 2

Use repeat for drawing triangles, squares and rectangles You can use the repeat command to save time typing repeated commands when drawing triangles, squares and rectangles. To draw a regular triangle with sides of 75 units and exterior angle 120°, instead of typing fd 75 rt 120 3 times, you can type: repeat 3 [fd 75 rt 120] Execute the commands to test whether you have got the right shape. Change your commands for drawing 3 regular triangles with sides of 100, 150 and 250 units.

Complete the commands below for drawing a square with sides of 100 units: repeat ___ [fd ______] Change the commands for squares with sides of 70, 90 and 120 units. Complete the commands below for drawing a rectangle with width 45 units and length 70 units: repeat___[fd______fd______] Change the commands to draw a rectangle with sides of 90 and 145 units.

Polygons Polygons are shapes with more than 4 sides. A regular hexagon has 6 equal sides and 6 equal exterior angles of 60°. To draw a regular hexagon with sides of 100 units, you need to type fd 100 rt 60 6 times. By using the repeat command you only need to type repeat 6 [fd 100 rt 60]. Execute the commands. o you get a regular hexagon

Make sure you leave a space between repeat and 6. Use square brackets only!

More polygons Complete the commands below to draw a regular pentagon with each side 70 units and each exterior angle 72°: repeat____ [ ________________ ]

A pentagon has 5 sides and an octagon has 8 sides. The exterior angle of a polygon = 360°/n, where n is the number of sides. 4

Exploring Control

Write the commands using repeat to draw a regular octagon with each side 70 units and each exterior angle 45°: ____________________________________
