New Tutorial: Creative Coding with Small Basic


Small Basic Tutorial intro

Do you need a learn-to-code tutorial that everyone can do, even if they've never written code before?  Have I got a tutorial for you! Creative Coding with Small Basic covers several basic concepts, such as variables, loops and subroutines and how to apply them to the TextWindow, Turtle and GraphicsWindow objects, with the end result creating a "greeting card" that can be shared with friends and family. This tutorial takes about an hour, including plenty of time for students to work at their own pace to try out the code.

If you're interested in reinforcing math concepts, we've got that covered too, with a little algebra and geometry that you can discuss as it comes up in the program.

Required: Windows computer with Small Basic 1.2 or higher installed

P.S. Feedback is appreciated! Let us know what you or your students think!
