Computer programmers use different skills every day. One of those skills is analyzing data. This series of fun, unplugged activities teaches readers to assess and organize data, reveals the importance of those abilities to computer programming, and demonstrates how they can be harnessed to analyze information in real life. Each activity uses everyday bjects and materials to help a reader learn how to think like a coder does. Students will gain key skills in areas of computational thinking, collaboration, project management, and analysis.

Series Review
When is a coding book not a coding book? When each of its featured 12 activities is not only analog, using real-world data and processes to demonstrate principles of computer logic and coding, but social, meant to be completed with a partner or a team. Computer science concepts are often taught using real-world analogies. This series provides readers with the basis for those analogies, and along the way, shatters some of the preconceptions about computer science. Readers will break down tasks, write instructions, record and analyze data, and practice parallel processing, sorting, and sequencing—all while planning parties, flipping water bottles, making breakfast, playing Simon Says, and engaging in team activities. The characters demonstrating these projects are a diverse group and drawn in cartoon style. The writing style is casual and friendly. This series demonstrates how coding and data concepts are grounded in the real world.
