  • What are some questions to ask when debugging a program?
  • Are all programming issues the result of bugs?

Related Standards of Learning



The student will debug a program using appropriate techniques (e.g., appropriately placed controlled breaks, the printing of intermediate results, other debugging tools available in the programming environment), and identify the difference among syntax errors, runtime errors, and logic errors.



The student will investigate and demonstrate an understanding of the nature of science, scientific reasoning, and logic. Key concepts include
  1. analysis of scientific sources to develop and refine research hypotheses;
  2. analysis of how science explains and predicts relationships;
  3. evaluation of evidence for scientific theories;
  4. examination of how new discoveries result in modification of existing theories or establishment of new paradigms; and
  5. construction and defense of a scientific viewpoint.
