– We continue doing our city.


What have we learnt 6

  • What is a multimeter? Is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit.
  • What is the difference among BINARY, HEXADECIMAL, and DECIMAL? An hexadecimal is a positional numeral system with a radix, or base, of 16, a binary number represents numeric values using two symbols: typically 0 and 1 and the decimal numeral system has ten as its base.
  • What is the difference between inductive and deductive logic? An inductive logic is a system of evidential support that extends deductive logic to less-than-certain inferences and a deductive logic is the process of reasoning from one or more general statements to reach a logically certain conclusion.
  • What did you think about Honors Academy, Exploratory Math? I think is the best class because we learnt a lot but in many different, interesting and fun ways.

What have we learnt 5

My strategy for solving the Traveling Sales Person’s problem is always using the shortest path.

  • What is a Karnaugh Map?  Is a method to simplify boolean algebra expressions.
  • What are examples of things that are digital and analog? An analog clock and a digital clock.
  • What is the difference between digital and analog? Digital is not continous and analog is continous.
  • What does 1011101010001 in binary equal in normal numbers? 5969.
  • What is a game tree? is a directed graph whose nodes are positions in a game and whose edges are moves.
  • Give an example of an Game Tree:
  • File:Tic-tac-toe-game-tree.svg
  • Why do computers use Game Trees? to find the best choice or answer.

– We learnt boolean algerbra.

– We work with Arduino.

– We saw a documental of arduino.



What have we learnt 4

Posted: January 15, 2014 in Uncategorized
  • ~(p ^ q) v (~p v ~q) :
  • Image 
  • 74LS08, 74LS86 .
  • What is a truth table? is a mathematical table used in logig, specifically in connection with Boolean algebra, boolean functions, and propositional calcus—tocompute the functional values of logical expressions on each of their functional arguments.
  • What is Demorgan’s Law?  are a pair of transformation rules that are both valid rules of inference.
  • What is Ohm’s Law? states that the current through a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential difference across the two points. Introducing the constant of proportionality, the resistance, one arrives at the usual mathematical equation that describes this relationship.
  • What is double implication?
  • What is an adjacency matrix? is a means of representing which vertices (or nodes) of a graph are adjacent to which other vertices.

  • Why do you think the parents will want to know about this topic? Because I think they will want to know what have we learnt how do we process and if we like it or not.
  • What would you like them to know about this topic? I would like that the know how I learnt to process, if I like it or not and also I would like them to know for what this topic is useful.

What have we learnt 3.

Posted: January 13, 2014 in Uncategorized
  • What is an assembler? A computer program which translates from assembly languaje to an object file or machine language format.
  • What is an 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? 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? It is a way to write down equations and other mathematical formulae.
  • What are the leaves of a binary tree? The notes that doesent have childs.
  • What is a complete graph? Is a simple undirected graph in which every pair of distinct vertices is connected by a unique edge.
  • What is a Finite State Machine (FSM)? Is a mathematical model of computation used to design both computer ptograms and sequential logic circuits.

Examples of vertices

Example of 3 vertices coloring: A triangle has 3 vertices. The least colors that you can use in a triangle vertices are 3.

Example of 4 vertices coloring: A square. The least colors that you can use in a square vertices are 2.
