Today we looked at Blown to Bits chapter 4, which is about internet searching.  We looked at a history of the Google search engine:

Today was “game day.”  Everyone got to play your games of chance.  As I said during class, you guys blew me away.  The games were fantastic!!!  We will start chapter 7 tomorrow.  It is one of the most difficult of the semester, so get ready to learn!

Today we worked on projects.  We will not have class tomorrow, but we will review for the Friday quiz on Thursday.  Therefore, I suggest that everyone do the chapter review exercises before then.

Today we coded the Caesar Cipher app from Mobile CSP 5.5.  This was a very challenging app, and you may need to review the video multiple times at home to understand it.  We will complete the app tomorrow.

Today we completed the material for Chapter 6.  The notes are the slides relating to Geometric Random Variables here: TPS4e_Ch6_6.3.  Homework is to do problems 95, 97 and 99.  Also, although not by tomorrow, I would like for you to do the Chapter Review exercises.  We will go over the homework tomorrow and the Chapter Review on Thursday.  For the rest of the week, we will work on projects tomorrow; you have testing on Wednesday; we will review for the quiz on Thursday; and the Chapter 6 quiz will be Friday.

Today we completed Mobile CSP 5.3.  I believe that everyone finished during class.  Remember that 2nd block will not meet on Wednesday due to testing and, instead, will meet Thursday.  Third block will meet Wednesday after testing but not on early-release day, Thursday.

Today we finished our discussion of Binomial Random Variables.  The notes are slides 11-15 of this powerpoint: TPS4e_Ch6_6.3.  Homework is to read pages 393-401 and do problems 91 and 92.  That’s it! Two problems!  If you were not here today, make sure you get with me to get the problem we copied into interactive notebooks.

Today we talked about Binomial Random Variables.  Here is a video that might help if you were confused after today’s class:Binomial Distributions.  The notes for today are here: TPS4e_Ch6_6.3 (first half).  Homework is to read pages 382-393 and do problems 73, 75, 77, 81, 83, 95, 87, 93.

Today we learned about parameterization.  We completed section 5.2.  Remember, if you did not finish your write-up on your Google Site for 5.02, it is homework.  The Google site has 2 portfolio questions to answer, the app write up, the .apk file and the .aia file.  The app write-up only needs a description of your code, a screen shot and a copy of your code.  I will randomly check several students’ Google Sites to make sure you have completed the assignment.
