Beginning ActionScript - Syntax & Variables

Technical Tutorial Published 3/19/12 Last updated on 5/16/18
This is the second tutorial in the Beginning ActionScript series. It introduces students to the common syntax used in ActionScript and a few common variable types. Unfortunately the FLA files can't be uploaded here, but they are available on the website: - The website also includes a full set of video tutorials, lesson plan, mark sheet, starter, homework and sample files. All the work has been tested with students aged 11-18 although as the age goes down the amount of support you will need to give increases.

The A5 Booklet provided here is in Black & White as the full colour high resolution one (Of which the first page JPG has been uploaded as the image) is too large. They can be printed though... see the website for more details.
