Questions

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.

Honor Academy: Eighth Day

~(p ^ q) v (~p v ~q)   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

• What is Demorgan’s Law?
• What is Ohm’s Law?
• What is double implication?
• What is an adjacency matrix?

Honor Academy: Seventh Day (Yesterday)

Yesterday we reviewed logic, we learnt about travelling salesperson and the truth table, and we started to use chips with the arduinos.

Honor Academy: Sixth Day

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.  Graph Coloring

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.

Examples

In a Cube: 2 colors

In a Pyramid: 4 colors

In South American Map: 4 color
