Computer Science has definitely been a great (and crazy) time, which could be said for the rest of Mass. Academy. Although I had some basic programming experience before CS I‘ve learned a plethora of new things from making a website to learning recursive functions. It’s pretty amazing at how much everyone has improved from the basics of scratch to the complexities of racket. Just think about how people used to program from drop down blocks and connections to writing and debugging a fully functional game. I’ve had a lot of help along the way from Mrs. Lang and students alike and it’s been a great year! Unfortunately next year I’m not planning on taking any computer science courses, but hopefully I can still keep up with learning different programming languages.
Computer PowerPoint Although this project was in the beggining of the year, I had a lot of fun in making a cheap computer. For some reason I find it fun hunting for bargin prices for different components. One reason is because I want to put together my own computer in the future, and I would have done it recently if my parents would believe that a home made computer is worlds better than a pre-built computer. p>
Lab 14 The Lab that I am the most proud of and my favorite is Lab 14. This lab was done in Dr. Racket and was a choice of making one of four games. My partner (Rohit) and I decided to do the snake game! Although it looks simplistic in nature it was one of the most challenging programing that I had to do. Just wrapping my head around what we had to do left my mind in a daze. In the end however, we were able to get everything working and had a lot of fun in playing the final product. p>
Lab My least favorite lab were the scratch and byob labs. I felt that these programing languages were too simplistic in nature, but I do understand why we did these projects; for the people who never programed before. With my previous experience it felt limiting, but I’ll admit that some of the labs, like the fractal ones, were really cool. It was a good way into recursion but a bit mundane. p>
CS stands for Computer Science and is taught by Mrs. Lang. In this class we learn how to make a website (what you’re viewing) and how to program in something called Racket. While building my website it really confirmed what I thought before; just how bad Internet Explorer and Firefox really are. If you’re still using these browsers it’s time to change!!!!!
