BBC micro:bit 1 SOS 1
"Really enjoyed doing it
you need to go onto micro bit to actually create your duplicate sound it was quite hard to understand what you had to do hence why i got 0% for my first attempt because i had not realised that i had to create my own matching sequence." (final attempt 100%)
"Building a Model for a Holiday - Make sure you complete the spreadsheet on the computer. I did it on paper first and it went wrong. No need to put in £ signs."
Intro. to Graphics "Really enjoyed doing it if you read all of it you will understand it more this is probably the best homework i have had so far in ict because it's more interesting it's like a book if you get into it u just cant stop. i started searching more about pixels haha lol"
"Don't guess the command as there is a scale along the side and bottom of the graph. This website makes homework fun (kind of). It can be hard but it depends on how you see things."
