This lesson is called Real Life Algorithms.
• 0:10 - 0:15
Algorithms describe things
that people do everyday. Cookie recipes and
• 0:15 - 0:20
directions for building a birdhouse are both
everyday algorithms. Today we're gonna make,
• 0:20 - 0:27
create, and test an algorithm for a paper
airplane. But first, we need to break this
• 0:27 - 0:33
big project into easy to follow small steps.
For making a paper airplane, we need to decide
• 0:33 - 0:37
what steps to take and in what order to take
them. You'll create your algorithm by first
• 0:37 - 0:43
cutting apart the pictures. Next, you'll select
the 6 pictures that show the steps needed
• 0:43 - 0:48
to make a paper airplane and arrange those
pictures in the correct order. After you have
• 0:48 - 0:52
everything in order, you will trade algorithms
with another student team to test out the
• 0:52 - 0:57
algorithm to see if the algorithm works. A
well designed algorithm is super important
• 0:57 - 1:01
to making the best paper airplane.
• 1:07 - 1:10
When we want to make chocolate, there are many big
• 1:10 - 1:15
steps to that process. And each of those big
steps has its own set of smaller steps. And
• 1:15 - 1:19
there are different recipes, or algorithms,
depending on how we want the chocolate to
• 1:19 - 1:24
taste. Each step is important, even the small
ones. So without one step, the rest of them
• 1:24 - 1:31
cannot be completed. Creating algorithms that
others can understand is really important.
• 1:31 - 1:35
That's why each step has to be written down,
so no matter who does it, the result is the same.
