Rating
0.0 stars

Students gain a deeper understanding of how sound sensors work through a hands-on design challenge involving LEGO MINDSTORMS(TM) NXT taskbots and sound sensors. Student groups each program a robot computer to use to the sound of hand claps to control the robot's movement. They learn programming skills and logic design in parallel. They experience how robots can take sensor input and use it to make decisions to move and turn, similar to the human sense of hearing. A PowerPoint® presentation and pre/post quizzes are provided.

Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students put their STEAM knowledge and skills to the test by creating indoor light fixture “clouds” that mimic current weather conditions or provide other colorful lighting schemes they program and control with smartphones. Groups fabricate the clouds from paper lanterns and pillow stuffing, adding LEDs to enable the simulation of different lighting conditions. They code the controls and connect the clouds to smart devices and the Internet cloud to bring their floating clouds to life as they change color based on the weather outside.

Dive into Systems
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

Dive into Systems is a free, online textbook that serves as a gentle introduction to computer systems, computer organization, and parallel computing. The book is intended for an audience that has only a CS1 background. It guides readers through a vertical slice of a computer to develop an understanding of a variety of systems topics, including:

- how a computer runs a program, from a program expressed in a high-level language to low-level binary representation and circuits

- programming in C and Assembly, assuming a CS1 background

- introduction to operating systems and the systems costs that affect program performance (the memory hierarchy, caching, and code optimization)

- introduction to parallel computing with shared memory and pthreads

Dive into Systems is designed to be present topics in as independent manner as possible so that it can be used as a primary textbook for a wide range of introductory-level computer systems courses, or as a supplemental background textbook for upper-level courses that cover Operating Systems, Computer Architecture, Compilers, Networks, Databases, and Parallel Computing.

The tutorial that the "DjangoGirls" initiative is using for all of its workshops. It's a very beginner-friendly tutorial with introductions to the command line, Python, Django, HTML and CSS. No previous programming experience is required.

Once participants have finished the tutorial, they will have a small working web application: their own blog. The tutorial will show them how to put it online, so others will see their work.

The tutorial is available in English, French, Chinese and Ukrainian. "beta" versions of translations to other languages are also available. (The English version is considered the "original" and is usually the most maintained, complete and up-to-date one.)

Does It Work? Test and Test Again

Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Testing is critical to any design, whether the creation of new software or a bridge across a wide river. Despite risking the quality of the design, the testing stage is often hurried in order to get products to market. In this lesson, students focus on the testing phase of the software/systems design process. They start by exploring existing examples of program testing using the CodingBat website, which contains a series of problems and challenges that students solve using the Java programming language. Working in teams, students practice writing test cases for other groups' code, and then write test cases for a program before writing the program itself.

Students' understanding of how robotic ultrasonic sensors work is reinforced in a design challenge involving LEGO MINDSTORMS(TM) NXT robots and ultrasonic sensors. Student groups program their robots to move freely without bumping into obstacles (toy LEGO people). They practice and learn programming skills and logic design in parallel. They see how robots take input from ultrasonic sensors and use it to make decisions to move, resulting in behavior similar to the human sense of sight but through the use of sound sensors, more like echolocation. Students design-test-redesign-retest to achieve successful programs. A PowerPoint® presentation and pre/post quizzes are provided.

Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Artificial Intelligence and blockchain technologies are revolutionizing how various industries work, including the accounting industry. As the tools of the trade grow smarter, what will the future landscape of accounting look like? And where will accounting grads find a place in it? Researchers address these and other questions in a recent review published in the journal IEEE Access. AI and blockchain technologies are already having a big impact on how accounting firms run. Deloitte has created a voice analysis tool that monitors customer interactions and identifies high-risk interactions through natural language processing. PricewaterhouseCoopers has an entire AI audit lab designed to improve audit quality and operational efficiency, and Ernst & Young has developed Blockchain Analyzer, which enables in-depth reviews of cryptocurrecy transactions. Accounting students are recommended to hone their programming skills and stay abreast of emerging technologies to thrive in this fast-changing environment..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

The Fibonacci Sequence & Robots
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Using the LEGO® NXT robotics kit, students construct and program robots to illustrate and explore the Fibonacci sequence. Within teams, students are assigned roles: group leader, chassis builder, arm builder, chief programmer, and Fibonacci verifier. By designing a robot that moves based on the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, they can better visualize how quickly the numbers in the sequence grow. To program the robot to move according to these numbers, students break down the sequence into simple algebraic equations so that the computer can understand the Fibonacci sequence.
