• Why teachers should provide real-life examples


Hi, guys!

We have not one, but two articles to share with you!

Check out the latest reflection on Why teachers should provide real-life examples in which we’re pointing out what makes concrete examples so valuable and how to better incorporate real world into your course.

And also we’ve highlighted 5 Ways to Learn a New Coding Language just to give you some tips to help you learn faster and more effective, because our age, driven by tech and information, is highly demanding and having more up your sleeve gives you an advantage and opens new opportunities.

Enjoy solving new missions:

The first mission is called “Sum Consecutives” and here you need to sum strictly the identical and consecutive numbers in a given array of integers.

sumConsecutives([1, 1, 1, 1]) == [4]
sumConsecutives([1, 1, 2, 2]) == [2, 4]

The second is the “Split Pairs” where your task is to split the string into pairs of two characters and replace the missing one if the string contains an odd number.

splitPairs('abcd') == ['ab', 'cd']
splitPairs('abc') == ['ab', 'c_']
