Unit 3 Lesson 18 Activity 14 Exemplar


#1

Unit 3 Lesson 18 Activity 14 Exemplar has some code about “Check if the character is touching the bad coin” and “If the sun goes behind the sun, move it”.

I think this information should be removed from the Exemplar.

Thank you,
Beth

Beth,

Just a clarifying question - in the exemplar you believe the code isn’t needed? Or the “//” comments aren’t needed?

You’ll need both bits of code to get the game to properly work, but there is a typo in the “If the sun (Coin) goes behind the the sun, move it” comment.

Brad,

I believe the code is not needed. It does not directly relate to the activity at hand. While the code necessary to complete the activity as designed is there, it is helpful if the exemplars are a simple as possible so that teachers can quickly review them.

Thank you for requesting clarification.

Beth

@bpenney Are you saying that the activity instructions are only talking about moving a single coin while the example has two coins? The instructions do seem to indicate that it is only about a single coin while the example code does have two coins. I suppose this is a bit confusing.

Yes you are correct.
