Course Description Icon

Early computing was mostly about arithmetic, which boils down to counting. The problem though, was that we needed more information from the results of our counting.  

A Summary


Minimum Grade Best for students 2nd grade and up

Length 20 minutes / Class
Subject Area Problem with Early Computing

Target Audience

We think this material can be understand by students as young as 2nd grade.


YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson. We will ask questions requiting a student to reference a chart and translate a hieroglyfic symbol to english. The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material and 5 minutes for testing. You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around.
