What is the difference between an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi? http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/arduino-vs-raspberry-pi-which-is-the-mini-computer-for-you/
The Arduino is a Microcontroller and does not function as a whole computer. The Raspberry Pi is a Microprocessor and is a mini computer. Also, the Arduino is smaller than the Raspberry Pi.
What is a function and what is a parameter? Give an example from one of your projects and identify what part is the function name and what parts are the parameters.
A function is an action that helps create the shape you need. A parameter is the coordinates and size of that shape. E.c:
arc(90, 60, 80, 80, 0, HALF_PI);. The arc is the function and the numbers inside the parentheses are the parameters.
What is the difference among: int, float, bool, and char. What do each of them mean?
Int stands for integer, float is a type of object, bool stands for boolean, or binary, and char stands for character. An integer is a number that is whole. Float is just like an integer, but includes decimals. Boolean is a data type that identifies true or false, and character is a place to store all characters and symbols. Each of these has a different value. Some have more bytes while others have only one.
What is the difference between ”=” and ”==”?
The single equal sign, “=,” stands for the outcome. The double equal sign, “==,” stands for a comparison, also known as yes or no, between a variable and integer.
Why do we use variables in programming?
We use variables in programming because we can easily interchange numbers in place of the variable.
Why do we use loops in programming?
We use loops in programming to repeat certain actions.
This is a diagram of how we talk to computers. We program in a high level language. These words and numbers goes through the Compiler, or a machine that converts programming language into computer language, and through the Assembly to the Assembler. The Assembler converts Assembly code into machine code so the computer can compute. Finally, the language goes to the Microcontroller or Microprocessor to show the action on the screen.
During my Computer Programming class, I have learned many things. For example, I learned to solve equations to find the x integer. I also learned many terms, like function and Assembler. I learned how to use Processing in depth and make a robot.
