Computational thinking

In this assignment, you will create a tool to help students calculate, analyze, or otherwise apply information gathered from various sources. This could either be in the format that you will present to your students or represent an assignment that you will ask your students to complete as part of the assessment. Please see the rubric for more details and resource section for more details.

In this assignment I converted the EOWL online word list into Excel format, and put it in a worksheet as the database for valid English words. This way you can type some text into a box on the Excel UI worksheet and the computer can tell you if it was English or not. There were also some statistics and charts on letter frequency that were derived from the EOWL dictionary.

This was a new way of using Excel for me, using formulas to look up and summarize things, and I hope to add it to my repertory!
