Defining flowcharts and UML diagrams.

August 30, 2011 at 5:24 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
As we moved on to building abstract models of different projects, I introduced the students to flowcharts and UML diagrams.  They explored the concept and played around with the different tools. On Monday we will examine a simpler problem and start drawing actual flowcharts.
We revisited the question “what is abstraction?” I was quite surprised and impressed with the answers. One of the students answered “abstraction is a process of taking a specific detail and making it general.” Excellent answer! We are one step closer to getting a good grasp of abstraction.
