1 Flowol The Task

2 Objectives To gain an understanding of how the Flowol software works To gain an understanding of how the Flowol software works

3 Progression Learning the flowchart symbols Learning the flowchart symbols Completing a flowchart diagram Completing a flowchart diagram Testing this diagram in Flowol Testing this diagram in Flowol Matching flowcharts to scenarios Matching flowcharts to scenarios Simulating temperature control Simulating temperature control Using procedures to build an efficient program Using procedures to build an efficient program

4 START IS IT WORKING? STOP SMILE! YES DID YOU MESS WITH IT? NO HIDE IT TURN IT OFF YES Problem Resolution

5 Flowchart symbols Start or stop Subroutine Decision Input or output Process

6 START IS IT WORKING? STOP SMILE! YES DID YOU MESS WITH IT? NO TURN IT OFF YES Problem Resolution HIDE IT

7 Problem Subroutine Sub 1(Hide It) OPEN CUPBOARD TURN LIGHT ON CHUCK IT IN TURN LIGHT OFF CLOSE CUPBOARD STOP

8 A Simple Start START TURN OUTPUT 1 ON STOP

9 A Simple Start START TURN OUTPUT 1 ON TURN OUTPUT 1 OFF STOP

10 A Simple Start START TURN OUTPUT 1 ON DELAY 1 TURN OUTPUT 1 OFF DELAY 1

11 Planning Flowcharts Start Is light less than 50? Turn lamp on Yes No Lesson 3 – Activity 2

12 Planning Flowcharts Start Is light less than 50? Turn lamp on Yes No Turn lamp off Lesson 3 – Activity 2

13 Planning Flowcharts Start Is light less than 50? Turn lamp on Yes No Turn lamp off Beep Lesson 3 – Activity 2

14 Putting Our Plan Into Flowol

15 The Mimic Light LevelLamp

16 Simulating Temperature Control Room temperature Electric fire Cooling fan Too cold (<10) ONOFF Just right(10<>20) OFFOFF Too hot(>20) OFFON

17 Matching a Flowchart to a Scenario When the temperature in the house drops below 10 degrees C, turn on the fire, if it goes above, turn it off. When the temperature in the house drops below 10 degrees C, turn on the fire, if it goes above, turn it off. When the temperature in the house rises above 20 degrees C, turn on the fan, if it goes below, turn it off. When the temperature in the house rises above 20 degrees C, turn on the fan, if it goes below, turn it off.

18 Electric Fire / Cooling Fan

19 Using procedures to build an efficient program Design a system to help a person with impaired hearing in his or her own home. Design a system to help a person with impaired hearing in his or her own home. Consider how you can make sure that the person knows that: Consider how you can make sure that the person knows that: someone has rung the door bell;someone has rung the door bell; the smoke alarm is sounding.the smoke alarm is sounding. How will the person know the difference between these two sounds? How will the person know the difference between these two sounds?

20 Devise a control program that will use the light bulb to differentiate between the smoke alarm and the doorbell, using subroutines to increase efficiency. The Main Task

21 Objectives To gain an understanding of how the Flowol software works To gain an understanding of how the Flowol software works
