The basic resources for your construal comprehension exercise can be found in the subdirectories within the public directory /dcs/emp/empublic/teaching/cs405/UsingEMPE on the departmental network. The following additional resources may be useful in studying your allocated construal:
- cricketscoringPether2006: The GEL guide to the %angel notation can be found within the gelHarfield2006 subdirectory of the EM archive. The %angel notation was discussed in Lecture 8 from CS405 in 2011-12. Discussion of ways in which the theme of cricket relates to EM can be found in computer science Research Report #444 Computing for construals in distributed participatory design – principles and tools by Beynon and Chan online at http://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/report/pdfs/cs-rr-444.pdf. This contains a passing reference to Pether's project.
- bubblesortBeynon2007: The bubblesort model is discussed in EM paper #107. There are associated links to expositions of Web EDEN variants of the bubblesort construal.
- nimLeekeBeynon2012: The rules of Nim and the mathematics behind the winning strategy are discussed in Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nim. Matthew Leeke's written component of his WEB-EM-4 submission is available as a pdf file in the subdirectory numLeeke2008. This construal is closely based on Leek's original model (nimLeeke2008), but has been revised by Beynon.
- vimodesBeynon2006: The vimodes model has a variant that can be accessed via Web EDEN, and is particularly relevant to the view of constructivist computer science education discussed in EM paper #108.
