Tuesday (2/13/18)

Warmup:

  1. Index card questions for CTE speakers - write at least two questions for the CTE day speakers
  2. Write your name on the card
  3. Return the card to Mr. Bui

Agenda:

Wednesday - Friday (2/7/18 - 2/9/18)

Warmup:

  1. Read today's assignment
  2. Working with a partner...
  3. Outline (brief explanation) specific programming tools or constructs (e.g. looping) that will need to be used and what we will use them for
  4. Write both team member's names on the document
  5. Submit your outline to Canvas (each person must have a submission on his/her account)

Agenda:

  • Course Request Forms
    • What can you take next year in Computer Science?
  • Letter Frequency Analysis
    1. Check out Wikipedia: Letter Frequency for the table of percentages of how often specific letters of the alphabet appear
    2. Find a block of text of at least 500 words from any book, magazine, news article etc.
    3. Write a program that calculates the frequency of all the letters in the alphabet of your block of text (the values should be displayed as percentages). Also display the total letter count.
      • Ignore spaces and punctuation (don't count them)
      • You must treat uppercase and lowercase letters the same (HINT: You can use functions/methods in String Methods)
      • You will need to keep track of all the counts of all the letters
      • Be sure to keep track of the total number of characters (use a variable) -- you need this so that you can calculate a percentage
    4. Execute your program and compare your percentages to the Wikipedia: Letter Frequency
  • NOTE: There are many different ways to approach this problem. Design and implement YOUR own solution for how you would do it.

Monday (2/5/18)

Agenda:

  • Turn in Feb 20th CTE Day permission slips ASAP!
  • Morse Code Sound Player
    1. Create a new file named morseCodePlayer.py
    2. Copy your plain->morse translation code
    3. Using the time and os modules, you will write a program that allows the user to input a string. The program will then translate to morse code, display the textual morse code, AND play the morse code sounds
    4. You may use the following sound files: Media:Dot.wav and Media:Dash.wav
    5. After your translate to morse code, you should iterate through your morse code string and check to see what each character is in order to play the appropriate sound (if the character is a dot, then play the dot sound).
    6. Whenever there is a space, you should sleep for about 50 milliseconds

Thursday (2/1/18)

Warmup:

  1. Complete the Internal Assessment Idea Survey Quiz on Canvas
  2. Time module
    • Skim through the module and find 3 useful functions

Agenda:

  • Reminder of current 3rd Quarter Assignments
    • Plain->Morse translator
    • Morse->Plain translator
    • Today: Morse Code Sound Player
  • Time module
    • Time module demo
  • How to play a sound file using os.system()
    1. Download Media:Dot.wav and Media:Dash.wav
    2. Create a python file to test out playing sound
    3. import os
    4. os.system("afplay FILENAME")
    5. make sure that the python file and the sound are in the same folder/director
  • Morse Code Sound Player

Tuesday (1/30/18)

Warmup:

  1. Given the following string: "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus velit sapien, porttitor id dui eget, elementum vehicula ligula. Maecenas dapibus sem ac turpis semper elementum. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Nam tellus nibh, suscipit semper risus sit amet, aliquet gravida quam. Vestibulum eget purus massa. Nullam a aliquam ex. Vestibulum luctus vulputate elit eu euismod. Aliquam ornare ipsum ac risus imperdiet laoreet. Donec facilisis porttitor nisi, ac efficitur felis vulputate quis."
  2. Write a program to count the total number of words (HINT: how are words separated?)

Agenda:

  • Thursday (2/1/18) -- be prepared to submit a 2-3 sentence description of your possible IA project
  • 2nd Quarter Exam Debrief
  • Introduction to Modules
    • A module is an external python file that gives you functions that you can use
    • A package is a collection of related modules
    • A library is a set of core, built-in modules (sometimes used synonymously as package)
  • Time module
    • Skim through the module and find 3 useful functions
    • Time module demo
  • How to play a sound file using os.system()
    1. Download Media:Dot.wav and Media:Dash.wav
    2. Create a python file to test out playing sound
    3. import os
    4. os.system("afplay FILENAME")

Thursday (1/25/18)

Warmup:

  • Complete the Extra Credit Mid-Year Feedback quiz on Canvas

Agenda:

  • Complete Morse Code Translator
    • You do not have to use a dictionary for morse->plain
