Writing your own art algorithm (15 minutes)

Writing your own art algorithm (15 minutes)

Explain to students they are now the computer. Each one will create their own algorithm.

Say you have created an algorithm to help them draw it. Show students examples of algorithms by either describing them or drawing examples on the whiteboard.

You can proceed with these instructions:

Ask students to design their own algorithm.

For younger students, you can specify that the algorithm drawing needs the following:

Practise making algorithms on paper. Allow each student to design their own, unique algorithm. In the end you should have every student sitting around the paper ready with one algorithm.
