For the first week of Computer Science we worked on coding with Netlogo and html. The first day we learned everyone's names and were introduced to Netlogo and began to make shapes like squares, stars and we learned of loops that make repetitive coding much easier. We also began to make our websites(which I still struggle at) and I subscribed to the Youtube channel that Mr. Farrell showed us.
The second day we began to make the more complicated shapes like .
What these codes are composed of is repetitions of earlier codes that made either a Y or a Star.
The third day(Wednesday) we made a turtle colony with net logo. I personally think that this was hecka cool because I didn't control the turtles at all and yet they moved around and ate lechuga randomly. This was because we added multiple codes that made the computer move itself instead of me having to do separate sets of commands. This also allowed the turtles to all have a different path, and no turtle had the same path. But also the colony modelled the path of survival because we gave them an attribute for energy. And energy was gained and lost as the turtle moved, breeded, and ate "grass".
Python is one of the many computer programming languages that is used. It is a high level language and its main objective was to make a code that is easy to read. Companies like Google,Yahoo, and Linux. Also Battlefield 2(video game) is written with Python. Python was coded by Guido van Rossum (who now works for Google) who wanted to do something during his Christmas Vacation, so he decided to write a programming language.
After Break we got to play with Python and just like on net logo we started by making a square like below.
And that was the end of playing with the shapes on Python, the next thing we did was:
YES!!! Everyone loves the mighty Lechuga, which is why we made a game for it. Technically we just programmed python to respond to user input, but we had to make it more fun, so we added Lechuga.
After some fun with Lechuga, we got to play with some math equations on python. The equation I used was a Algebra equation and we were solving for x with 4 variables. We used this code which was basically the equation of the Algebra Function.
On Thursday we continued our work with Python creating more codes that can solve math problems. So we decided to try and solve for the average of our input. As we continued testing out our code, Mr. Farrell decided that we should solve one of the supposedly prime numbers(4294967297). So we tested it with this code.
