Moving On

IMG_1827So I fin­ished my Col­lege Alge­bra 203 class in about a week. I mas­tered sev­er­al top­ics in the knowl­edge check. After class, I would go home and work on the top­ics some more. I was the first one to fin­ish col­lege alge­bra. This means I would move on to Pre-Cal­cu­lus.

For this knowl­edge check, I only mas­tered one class. I was­n’t sur­prised since in high school, I sort of failed Pre-Cal­cu­lus. The first cou­ple top­ics weren’t too hard but now I am on trigonom­e­try. It is not my favorite. I’ve been frus­trat­ed more often than I’d like to be.

In the after­noons, we do activ­i­ties relat­ed to the oth­er parts of STEM. Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy and Engi­neer­ing are the cat­e­gories. One after­noon, we did pro­gram­ming. We used the MIT App Inven­tor. I am into Com­put­er Sci­ence, and espe­cial­ly pro­gram­ming, so this inter­est­ed me. The pro­gram for the pro­gram­ming was fair­ly sim­ple. We first worked on the user inter­face, which con­sist­ed of 3 oval but­tons with the words “Stop”, “Slow” and “Go” on them. Then we did the “pro­gram­ming” part of it. It was in blue­print form. The cod­ing was already pro­grammed in to lit­tle blocks that you could move onto the page. We pro­grammed Stop to turn red, slow to turn yel­low and go to turn green. Each but­ton would turn the oth­er col­ors off. This was my favorite day.
