Scratch Test the Towers of Hanoi Algorithm Module 1 Lesson 5 Keyboard input Playing with Music
Checking your Algorithm • Go to the following link (Same on as on the PowerPoint from Monday) • Use this website to test your algorithm • If it works have your neighbor test it, sign it off and turn it in.
Learning Objectives • To learn about Event Handlers by programming scripts that are triggered by input from the computer keyboard. • To allow students to create a sequence of commands to play a musical scale • Apply these skills for the Battle of the Bands challenge.
Responding to Triggers ‘When’ commands are the main way a script detects an event when user input is received.
Right Arrow Moving Forward Your Turn. Make the Cat move up, down, left, and right. Extensions Have it turn when it goes another direction. Experiment with the change x by, change y by, move …
Your turn #2, using the playnote command, write a program that will play a scale when the space bar is hit. Hint: The notes are one half step differences. A major scale goes 2 half steps, 2 half steps, 1 half step, 2 half steps, 2 half steps, 2 half steps, one half step.
Sounds 1) Select the ‘Sounds’ tab. • Upload – One of your recorded sounds • Surprise – Scratch picks a sound • Record – If there was a mic • Choose – Use this today to pick from Scratch’s library of sounds 2) Open Sounds menu
Add the sound to your project Add the ‘play sound’ command to bring the sounds into your project
Making Music How can you use these triggers to make your keyboard into a piano, … Battle of the Bands Challenge Who can get Scratch to put on the best show? Requirements: 1) Use the play sound command. Create an original song/combination of sounds No meow!! 2) Include at least two useful comments 3) Include movements or sounds triggered by keyboard input 4) Have a theme Background Demonstrations in class tomorrow.
