    • Decomposition and Pattern Recognition
  2. Decomposition

    Slide 2 - Decomposition

    • Decomposition means breaking a very large task down into smaller, easier pieces.
  3. Real world example of decomposition

    Slide 3 - Real world example of decomposition

    • Planning a birthday party
  4. Scratch example of decomposition

  5. Pattern Recognition

    Slide 5 - Pattern Recognition

    • Patterns are bits of code that are similar or repeat.
    • Finding patterns can help you find shortcuts or simpler ways to code to the same results
  6. Real world example of pattern recognition

    Slide 6 - Real world example of pattern recognition

    • Daily snacks
    • Every day before dance practice, Jayme stops by the store and buys a bag of pretzels. She is late to practice about once a week and her teacher is frustrated with her.
    • Jayme’s mom points out that she can go to the store once per week, and buy 5 bags of pretzels, this will save her time
