Day 9 Honor Academy

We programmed the arduino and advanvced on our cuty project. Blog: Questions

• What is a multimeter? A multimeter measures electrical properties such as AC or DC voltage, current, and resistance.

• What is the difference among BINARY, HEXADECIMAL, and DECIMAL? binary and hex are simply different counting systems.

• What is the difference between inductive and deductive logic? Inductive reasoning is “usually described as moving from the specific to the general,” while deductive reasoning”begins with the general and ends with the specific; arguments based on experience or observation are best expressed inductively, while arguments based on laws, rules, or other widely accepted principles are best expressed deductively.” http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070907143954AA9q7s3

• What did you think about Honors Academy, Exploratory Math? It’s very fun and interesting, I even learned some pretty cool stuff, like programming and using arduinos. The balance between games and learning was perfect so we could learn about stuff and apply it Day 8 honor academy

We started using the arduino and changing the lights. We also strated making our city.  To solve this problem you need to make a chart and choose the smallest number

“The Karnaugh map, also known as the K-map, is a method to simplify boolean algebra  expressions.”en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karnaugh_map

digital clock and analog clock.

One is from the real world and digital is the computer world.

“In game theory, a game tree is a directed graph whose nodes are positions in a game and whose edges are moves.”en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_tree computers use it to see every possibility

Day 8 Honor Academy

Today we used the arduino some more we made the light go on and off, and we changed the led color.

Day 7 honour academy

We used the arduino which was extremely fun, Questions

• What is the name of the 2 chips that seem most like the ones you used yesterday:
• Quad 2-Input OR Gate
• Triple 3-Input AND Gate
• What is a truth table? “A truth table is a mathematical table used in logic—specifically in connection with Boolean algebra” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth_table
• What is Demorgan’s Law? “In propositional logic and boolean algebra, De Morgan’s laws are a pair of transformation rules that are both valid rules of inference.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Morgan’s_laws
• What is Ohm’s Law? “Ohm’s law states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points.”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohm’s_law
• What is double implication? It means that they both imply on the other
• What is an adjacency matrix?”In mathematics and computer science, an adjacency matrix is a means of representing which vertices (or nodes) of a graph are adjacent to which other vertices.”en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adjacency_matrix

Game Theory

My topic is game theory

I think that my parents wil want to know about this topic because games are fun and everyone enjoys games.

Game theory is the study of strategic decision making. Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as logic and biology. Game theory related stuff:

• Dominant Strategy: When a player’s choice gives him always a better strategy.
• Dominated Strategy: When a player’s choice always brings the worst case scenario.
• Nash Equilibrium: When both players use their dominant strategy

Day 6 Stanford

We used the arduino, it was very fun.

• What is an assembler?                                                                                                                                                                         -An assembler is a type of computer program that interprets software programs written in assembly language into machine language, code and instructions that can be executed by a computer.
•  What is an Arduino?                                                                                                                                                               – Arduino is a single-board microcontroller, intended to make the application of interactive objects or environments more accessible.
• What is the Traveling Sales Person Problem?                                                                                                                   —- The travelling salesman problem (TSP) asks the following question: Given a list of cities and the distances between each pair of cities, what is the shortest possible route that visits each city exactly once and returns to the origin city?
• What is Pre-Fix notation?                                                                                                                                                              — Prefix notation is a mathematical notation. It is a way to write down equation and other mathematical formulae.
• What are the leaves of a binary tree? • What is a complete graph?                                                                                                                                                            – In the mathematical field of graph theory, a complete graph is a simple undirect graph in which every pair of distinct  vertices is connected by a unique edge.
• What is a Finite State Machine (FSM)?                                                                                                                                               -It is conceived as an abstract machine that can be in one of a finite number of states.
