Preparing for the possibility of being tight on time when PT deadlines and AP Exam date roll around. Can I skip straight to Lesson 13 (arrays) after completing chapter 1 of Unit 5?
- Teacher notes indicate that Create PT can be done after chapter 1 of Unit 5 is completed (U5C1 commentary).
- Teacher notes also state that “using a linear pass over an array (a loop that starts at the front of a list and does something to or with each element one at a time until it reaches the end) is the most sophisticated programming technique students will encounter in the course or AP exam” (U5C2 commentary - preparing for the multiple choice exam).
From reading through the lessons, it appears that I could complete chapter 1 and then do U5L13 (Intro to Arrays) on its own, and be in OK shape for PT and Exam. Am I correct on that, or does Lesson 13 depend on material from lessons 11 (while) and 12 (simulations) in ways I haven’t noticed yet?
