Let me start with the disclaimer that I tread very lightly when answering all PT questions - I want to make sure everyone has a fair and consistent experience. That said…
An initialized list is an example of where a list is being created.
While the student may have multiple lists in their program, they need to select one to talk about. They can reference others, but need to talk about that one as a tool for managing complexity. They should pick the one that they feel they can best explain or use as an example of abstraction.
Thanks Madeline , The deep dive is indeed good but doesn’t cover some nuances like multi lists or iteration / algorithms outside of procedures. I think another tip i may utilise is to splice screenshots together so things are easier to see where multiples are concerned.
Hmm, I thought it mentioned that - perhaps that is another one of their videos, I’ll try to find it. If I remember correctly, in the examples on the collegeboard website there is someone ho doesn’t get the point for lists and abstractions because they write about one list, but it is not the same as the list that is initialized (perhaps the wordle example?)
I also have not seen anything about iteration/algorithms outside of procedures. The question is written such that I expect all three (sequencing, selection, and iteration) need to be in the same algorithm inside a procedure
