Pi vs Pie- Similarities and Differences

What’s Pi and Pie? Pie is easy:

keyl pi

Pi might be slightly harder, it’s an irrational number called:

Pi almost= 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939 and yadayadayada and on and on


  • Pi and Pie both start with a PI

Pressing Code: An Introductory to HTML

We’re almost done with BASIC, so we start HTML programming! WordPress recognizes HTML in its TEXT editor, so you can test the latest tricks.  This is in the visual editor:


In the text editor:


We’ll get to central HTML programming later, but here are some cool designs:






In text editor:






This HTML course will only teach you the basics. Please follow this blog in order to recieve latest posts for the HTML course. The BASIC course will probably be going until 11/27/2014, still.
Ready, Set, Done!

Referrers and Boxes

OK, we’ve approached the end of learning new commands, now we’ll actually focus on creating great programs with them. In this post, we’ll cover using trapped boxes with the goto, end, and if-then commands. In this program, we have a trap box:

The Small (And Big) Tricks to BASIC programming

Even though we learn the basics, there must be some little tricks to BASIC:

  • Using The “Majalo” Command To Switch Players

In a player game, you might want to switch between players. A simple 2-person game between player “0” and player “1” ¬†probably is hard to program, but “Majalo”, or the remainder of the quotient, is here to help! You can freely copy this line to use Majalo to switch/alternate between two players:


The % sign should symbol the Majalo command. Even though it might seem confusing at first, This should clear it up: Continue reading The Small (And Big) Tricks to BASIC programming

Listing Programs And Respective Commands

In order to write a program, you must list your steps:

1 print “Hello, World!”

2 print “Goodbye, World!”

3 print “Never Mind…”

It’s easy to list steps, you just give the computer directions. In MASICA.jar (please refer to the getting started guide), type “1” (no quotations) ¬†in the command box and it should be bold. If it is not, remember to not type anything before the “1”- not even a space. Then, type in anything we learned of your choice. Press enter. Then type the number 2 in the command box and the command, and so on Continue reading Listing Programs And Respective Commands

Printing Stuff in BASIC

The first thing to do in BASIC is to learn the simplest programming starter: print. To do this, open up MASICA (read this post if you don’t know what this means) or the online BASIC engine, and type this:

print “Hello, World!”

The engine/MASICA should display this on the next line:

Hello, World!

This is boring, but print is a very big function to success in BASIC. Practice these exercises for practice:

1. Make the computer say Goodbye World

2. Make the computer say Quotation is essential for success

3. Make the computer say This Is Basic, not HTML

Program Safe,


If Then Statements And Goto Command

After compiling all those things that we just did, we finally get to the even juicier part: If then! After this post, you should be able to create simple yet useful programs for yourselves. Here is my simple program:

1 a=0

2 print “You have:”,a

3 print “Hit or stand?”

4 input g

5 if g==”y” then goto 8

6 print “You stand with:”,a Continue reading If Then Statements And Goto Command

Variables and Numbers

OK, Mr. CodePress, we’ve learned about letters, printing, and lists. Now, we get to the juicy part: variables. No, these are not like your variables in your math class; these variables are assigned numbers either randomly by the computer, using an algorithm by the computer, or entered using the input tag.

Using “Input”

Input is used to assign a variable to a number, letter, or word. They work with if-then tags (covered in the next post) to make great choice-designed programs (which are pretty much almost every useful program)

Test It Out:

1 print “What number”

2 input g

3 print ,g, Continue reading Variables and Numbers
