What is a multimeter?
is an electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter would include basic features such as the ability to measure voltage, current, and resistance.
What is the difference among BINARY, HEXADECIMAL, and DECIMAL?
A number can be expressed in many ways. The number is the same, but the ‘outfit’ is different.
Decimal (regular) numbers are based on 10 digits. They’re used because you have 10 fingers and use them to count.
Binary numbers are used because computers are made of transistors, which can be on or off (1 and 0, only).
Hexadecimal numbers are used to simplify binary numbers. Instead of writing 10101010 in binary, you simplify it in hexadecimal with just AA.
What is the difference between inductive and deductive logic?
Deductive reasoning is a process of starting with something you already know and then you use that knowledge to think through another case you are trying address and inductive reasoning is a process using observations from many cases and from these observations make a general conclusion.
What did you think about Honors Academy, Exploratory Math?
I think it was awesome, funny and I’m very happy with this opportunity. Miss Sherol is an excellent teacher and her explanations are incredible, also Miss Pia is always helping us.

What is a truth table?
A truth table is a mathematical table used in logic, specifically in connection with Boolean algebra, to compute the functional values of logical expressions on each of their functional arguments
Why do you think the parents will want to know about this topic?
Because it’s interesting and fun.
What would you like them to know about this topic?
The different formulas from combinations and permutations with and without repetition.
Yesterday we reviewed logic, we learnt about travelling salesperson and the truth table, and we started to use chips with the arduinos.
Today we finished with animations at OpenProcessing, we started with circuits (Arduino) and at the end of the day, we made a circuit with one resistor and a light first, and then we used two resistors and the light went dimmer.
In its simplest form, it is a way of coloring the vertices of a graph such that no two adjacent vertices share the same color.
In a Cube: 2 colors
In a Pyramid: 4 colors
In South American Map: 4 color
What is a pixel? How does it work? Why do we use it?
A pixel is a physical point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable element in an all points addressable display device; so it is the smallest controllable element of a picture represented on the screen.
What is a compound probability? What is the equation?
A compound probability is an event that consist of 2 or more events
Equation: p (A or B) = p (A) + p (B) – p (A & B)
What is a Hexaflexagon?
Hexaflexagons are are flat models, usually constructed by folding strips of paper, that can be flexed or folded in certain ways to reveal faces besides the two that were originally on the back and front.
Yesterday we reviewed animation in OpenProcessing, we learnt how a computer works and how pixels are organized, we resolved the problem of the fruit salad (combination without repetition) and at the end of the day, Miss Sherol formed groups and we did 3-D figures. I leave you a photo of our 3-D figures.
