Unit 7 Lesson 3 Bubble 9 b & c

In the unit, (U7L3B9b&c) we are asking the students to simplify the code.

Could we add some better reasoning for the simplification as well as a bubble that focuses on the role of DRY and simplifying code?

I think it would help most kiddos with the justification for simplification as well as a way for them to gain a deeper understanding of the process. In this case, simplifying the code is a tactic but it does not show how it makes the code faster or easier to comprehend.

Thanks for sharing your ideas! This sounds like a feature/content request which is most effectively shared with the curriculum team by sending an email to support@code.org. I encourage you to share your idea with them in hopes of getting more options in the curriculum next year.
