Activity : Debug It #1

Ninja Instructions | Mentor Notes


The goals of this activity include:

  • investigate the problem and find a solution to five debugging challenges
  • explore a range of concepts (including sequence) through the practices of testing and debugging
  • develop a list of strategies for debugging projects

Things to watch for

  • None of this is THAT hard. As such, student may finish the activity without much thinking. It helps to engage the students in a discussion about what was wrong with the programs. Putting it into words in a discussion is often more meaningful than the actual activity.

What to look for when reviewing their work

  • Were students able to solve all five bugs? If not, how might we clarify the concepts expressed in the unsolved programs?
  • What different testing and debugging strategies did the student employ?
