Plans for final year of CONSTRUIT!

OOC for teachers - aimed at CAS in the first instance

  • linked to the AQA wikibook with Peter Kemp: select topics - interactive demos? Dijkstra Shortest Path algorithm / FSMs / Sorting
  • focus on implementing practically useful OERs via construals

Already have some possible candidate examples, riffing off existing CAS resources, that could be the basis for the introductory / accompanying wrapper:

  • Gary Shearn's Sorting
  • Conway's Life [cf. FP from Spivey, Wolfram Alpha]
  • Melanie Dennig [Maths for REs - basic set theory]
  • Freeman [BBC Basic solar system cf. Ant's version]
  • Are you Ready? discussion

MCE work

  • Walkthrough - OXO Laboratory
  • Nick's updates:
    fix scopng bugs / additional when-iteration / new alternative syntax for 'with' / new parser
  • Documentation - Jonny Foss's videos PGA
  • Tapani and Arduinolas variant

Papers:

  • PPIG [potentially serious revision]
  • iTAG [finishing off]
  • Arduino paper for the Edurobotics conference keynote [Ashley Ward, Manolis, Tapani]
  • Napier chessboard construal to complete.

Presentations:

  • Final conference to plan and set up [contacts to be made]
  • ALT-C (Warwick) September 6-8
