Suggested Tutorials

Traveling With Boolean Logic Part 3: OR Gates:

Explore how temperature, wind speed and other weather data affects a biome like the temperate grasslands. While exploring the different aspects of the biome, learn the OR logic gate that computers use to make decisions.

This is part 3 of 4 in a tutorial series on biomes and logic gates.

Traveling With Boolean Logic Part 2: And Gates:

Learn how AND Boolean logic can be used to evaluate two different inputs resulting in a true or false output. While exploring the logic of a computer system in this interactive tutorial, you will learn about different biomes and how computers can make decisions based on the attributes of the biomes.

This is part 2 of 4 in a tutorial series about biomes and Boolean logic.

Traveling With Boolean Logic Part 1: Not Gates:

Expand your coding skills with Boolean logic as you use the inverter NOT function to make decisions while learning about different biomes.

This is part 1 of 4 in a tutorial series about Boolean logic and biomes.

Weather-related Differences:

Learn how to identify explicit evidence and understand implicit meaning in a text.

You should be able to distinguish weather conditions among different climates.
