As you continue to work with code, scripts will become more complex. To address this, coders have a variety of techniques to make coding efficient, easy to understand, and reduce the chance of error. This series covers methods of organizing scripts, such as module scripts, a special type in script that can store functions and variables used by other scripts.
Objectives and Prerequisites
Understand the logic behind module scripts, as well as how to code a module script and access it in other scripts.
Be able to identify patterns of abstraction and algorithms in computer science.
Have an understanding of functions, events, and if/then statements.
|Intro to Module Scripts||Learn how to use module scripts, a type of script that stores functions and variables that can be called or accessed from other scripts.|
|Creating with Module Scripts||Apply using module scripts to create a mini-game where players gather keys to open chests.|
|Coding Abstraction||Abstractions in computer science provide a simplified representation of something larger. They pull out only the most necessary information and hide everything else.|
|Coding Algorithms||An algorithm uses a series of steps to determine an outcome. Steps can be a set of directions, comparisons, or even a mathematical formula.|
