Fifth game

leave a comment »

Our fifth game is entitled Series Finale.  The object of the game is to win the race against the King frog while answering series problems along the way.  The answer to every question is chosen by selecting and breaking the rock (i.e., swinging the Wii Remote down) that contains the next number in the sequence.

Here is the screen shot:

some things cleared

Since our project will now be focusing on the proof of concept of effectiveness of multiple interaction and collaborative methods in teaching grade four mathematics(our project’s temporary title), almost all of my researched RRL for the past weeks will have to be scrapped. Great. Good thing I haven’t posted any of the RRLs that I did. At least we now have a clear direction of what we are going to do and what we will be doing for the rest of the year.

5. Last Wii-k on MyMathVenturesHS… /*Part 1: RRL presentation*/

leave a comment »

I’m no good at writing documents and speaking in front of many people. I have poor proficiency in the English language. But I guess I have to overcome these weaknesses, or else… Practice, gulard, practice!!! T.T

Last Tuesday, we have presented our RRL’s to Dr. Caro. Here are the ones I have presented. We are required to present ten… Read the rest of this entry »

Wiitnessing It Works :D

Excited on acquiring our brand new Wiis, we immediately booted the PC so that its operating system is Linux.  First task, install the latest java.  😀 Easy, right?  But what we always get after downloading the latest jdk (which took several minutes) is a corrupted file.  As we believed that patience is a virtue, we just repeated the download for almost… ten times? XD Already disappointed with so much time wasted, I decided to try another site that offers a way on how to install java via the terminal (You see, I am a little bit ignorant with Linux. XD).

After minutes or so, java was at last installed. 😀

Next task, Avetana installation.  Following Stuart’s blog, I got along just fine extracting here and there, editing environment variables, until the command sudo ./install did not work.  During this time, I decided to pass the task to my partner.  After a few minutes, with the help and support of a member from MyMathVenturesJR, they did it! 😀 Some forums turned out to be really helpful.  Since other persons who tried the installations we were doing sometimes encountered same problems.

Wiiiiiiii…! Here They Are!

Gaussian elimination, lower triangular matrix, M1M2 must be equal to M2M1… In the middle of this CS131 lecture, my thesis partner’s phone beeped.

“Punta na kayo rito. 2pm daw presentation. Aalis kc si Sir Caro. ”

The message came from another one of Sir Caro’s advisees. We were actually scheduled to present our review of related literature today at 2:30pm. It was pure bliss that at last I have a reason to get out from the class earlier. Yet, I still found it rather impolite to just walk out from the room together with my partner. After gathering our guts, we finally managed to sneak out from the room and sprint upstairs back to WSG lab.

And TADAAH!!!
