VIP: WE DO NOT HAVE TEST TWO ON Nov 18th.
Write out or rather rewrite these notes with lots of white space and lots of size, so it fills four pages. No small font sizes. Leave some room so its easily readable and so you can go back and add notes or comments later on. Take your time and make it readable. Rewriting your own notes or someone else's notes is a great way to learn and understand. Its okay to do it a page at a time in several different sessions over a couple of days even.
Useful supplement: Print out the following PDF MonteCarlo.pdf that we did in class during week #7. It occurs in the VIDEO as an example on Monday, October 3rd, so it will be helpful to have a printout.
Monday afternoon, October 3rd followup to video example that was solved in class:
MonteCarloMonday10032016.pdf - study these notes and explanation. Take NOTES on these notes.
1. Write out the entire procedure code for turnFarAwayCowsToStars. It is given early on in the video. Include the TO turnFarAwayCowsToStars first line and the END last line of the procedure. Be sure to INDENT your code, as shown in the video. PRINT neatly. It should be easily READABLE. 2. What was the area of the world? How did I avoid having to use a calculator or multiply by hand and calculate what 33 squared was? 3. Where does the 0.29 come from? Be specific please. Which of the variables were involved in giving us the 0.29? b a = --- d What were the specific values c for the variables that resulted in 0.29? Sketch out a picture of the situation to show where you found those two values on the NetLOGO screen snapshot. Circle the two numbers. 4. What is 54.45? Which variable from the Monte Carlo formula is 54.45? a or b or c or d? What were the values for the other 3 variables that resulted in 54.45 being calculated? a: b: c: d: Note: One of the above four is the 54.45.
You can do the above stuff for Monte Carlo Problem #1, if you did fine on Problem #1 but got points taken off for Problem #2.
If you did badly on BOTH Monte Carlo problems, I will give you something additional to do for Monte Carlo Problem #2. For now, do the task for Monte Carlo Problem #1.
Note: If you missed TEN points or less on both MONTE CARLO problems, say you missed for example -4 on one and -6 on the other, the above is enough to do to get the entire Monte Carlo changed to -2 and -3.
SINE Opposite side is a LEG Adjacent side is a LEG COSINE TANGENT What is the other side beside the TWO LEGS? HYPOTENUSE is the side opposite the 90 degree, RIGHT angle! Tri, tri, and tri again to understand TRIangles, get triangles RIGHT!
a. Write out the entire PDF page, including the 3 questions, including the NetLOGO code (tryTrig and showRightTriangle), including all the questions and commentary and explanations on that page. b. When you get to any of the questions in the commentary, answer each one of those questions. How far does the turtls need to go? What is the given? What is the goal? How much does the turtle need to turn to get ready to draw to draw the horizontal leg of the triangle? What formulas do you know? What facts do you know? What do you know? What is your goal? ***** Answer and develop an answer to each and every one of the questions that occur in the commentary. Draw pictures. Explain and make clear, do NOT just put in a one word or a one number answer. ******
Draw a picture of the NetLOGO output, i.e. of the 9 turtles, one of which is shaped like an airplane and another shaped like a star.
Write out the scanned in notes pages for the solution to the TEN QUESTIONS homework: 1025AirplaneStar.pdf... Airplane and Star solution notes (Pages AAA to GGG).
Note that your notes must take up 7 pages, so it is easiest to use one side of a sheet of paper for page AAA, one side for page BBB, etc. Write so it is large enough to fill the page with lots of white space.
y = mx + b best fitting equation for a LINE for a set of points. Being able to PREDICT y from x. m is the slope Think skiing, steep slopes, beginner slopes... b is the intercept Think football, interceptions, intercept.
