HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING BREAK!

AP Computer Science Principles

Today students completed assignments and saw a video about algorithms.

AMT

Today students continued working on their research projects and continued working on their final topic of this semester: logic, analysis and set theory: Stanford Mathematical Thinking.

AP Statistics

Today we had a follow-up discussion to the Mark Mero assembly.  Thank you for your candor, your sensitivity and your support for each other.  What an amazing class you are!

AP Computer Science Principles

Today we talked about the enhancements to the Cipher App from Section 6.5.  If you did not finish the programming for that, make sure to do it this week.   We also looked at debugging programs, completing section 6.8.  Make sure to complete all self-check questions and portfolio questions for both.

AP Computer Science Principles

Today we finished the Cipher App from Section 6.5.  If you did not finish the programming for that, make sure to do it this weekend.  You may test it Monday.  We also looked at cybersecurity again, completing section 6.7.  Make sure to complete all self-check questions and portfolio questions for both.

Today we continued working on chapter 10, which involves comparing samples from two distributions. We did a FRAPPY: FRAPPY Chapter 10 Here is the scoring rubric: 2001 Scoring Guide. PLEASE NOTE that the correct test for this situation was a PAIRED T-TEST, not a 2 sample t-test for the difference of means.  It is an important distinction that you need to be able to make.  This weekend, make sure to look at the Chapter Review exercises for chapters 9 and 10 for our Monday review.  The quiz will be Tuesday.

Tomorrow is election day, so no school.  If you are eligible to vote, I encourage you to do so, but only if you are informed.  Check out Vote411.org to see what is on your ballot and to get some information about the candidates and information in the election.  Be aware that many candidates did not respond to the site about their positions, so make sure to get this information elsewhere.

AP Computer Science Principles

Today we looked at cryptography from Section 6.6.  Make sure that you complete the self check and portfolio for that section.  So far this unit, we have done the portfolio for sections 6.2, 6.3 and 6.6.  We are not going to do 6.4, but we will circle back to do 6.5 later.
