Flipped learning!

Hey there, this is my last post of the course. I may go back sometime with this wordpress to make a record of my progress in programming. But lets get back to the main part. What are my thoughts about flipped learning. Sorry if I didn’t post a video of me talking, I really hate being in front of the cameras. But I will post every single thing that I like and the other thing that I dislike about flipped Learning. Because like everything, there is no perfection.

What are the pros of flipped learning, at least from my point of view. There is a lot of thing that ordinary grading or “teaching” had mistaken. The way that today schools grade students, are actually wrong. Because they grade the ability to remember thing for short periods of time, not actually the ability of the student to make solutions to the problems that he is put to. So the pros of this style of learning is that the teacher actually don’t teach some subject, it presents you with a problem or idea that you will need to develop, this way you can research for way to make it done. So this is more like the real world, outside the school. When a job needs to be done, you look for solutions, you don’t wait for someone with experience make the work for you. You need to fix or creat thing by yourself. Other thing that breaks the learning process, are the grades, that are dictated by the task you supposed to do. It doesn’t matter if you don’t learn anything from it. The point is just show the teacher that you did it. But with flipped learning you are actually showing the person in charge that you learn something and you

SciLab WSQ14

Hello there, here again! The purpose of this post is to show how there is alternative programs for data analysis, and the best part OPEN SOURCE. FREE! I already know a program for the same purpose but this one was expensive, as you may think. It’s called MathLab, it an awesome program but really expensive. So our teacher show us this program so I downloaded and play with it for some time and I found it great, and the best part, this program would help me on my engineering career!

The link to download this awesome program is here: www.scilab.org

I play with it a little bit and watch some youtube videos at home when I had some free time.

Final Project

Hello there, here is Batmantec here again, with one of the last post’s of this semester. Now I am bringing to you guys the process that CanadaMike and I did to find the perfect final project. But like life is, there is specific way to make a program. We were in search for some projects, because our mind where to complex, by this I mean there were projects on our mind but this one where to complex and expensive. So we visit the site cplusplus.com to look for some projects. The exact website is this one: cplusplus.com This website had a cool set of ideas for C++ programs. The one that took our attention was “Simple file encryption (using something simple like ROT13” So Mike and I start researching about the topic. I already knew some stuff about how encryption works but still don’t understand completely.

The simplest way to say how encryption works is on this picture :Public_key_encryption_keys

(the picture was searched with google with the tools for reuse)

As you can see in the picture above, the encryption starts wit a file, in the example is use a plain text file, then after a process, with some keyword, they convert the file into a mess of data that no one can really understand. For getting the information you need the same process but in reverse, with the same algorithm, you just enter the keyword and get the original text on the output.

The problem that we face, is that there is not that much information for a program like this on C++, It was easier to found and example of the process on python.

After more than a week trying the program, we change our mind, because it was a lot of time consuming and we didn’t

Here is the #WSQ10

Hello there, after a long time, here I finally leave you the las programmable WSQ, I don’t know why I am uploading this program this late, because I already have it, it wasn’t that hard actually, it was one of the easiest one, because we already know how to use all the average and total in the function.

Here I leave you a picture of the program running:


Here I leave you the link to the code:


Here is the word Found #WSQ12

Hello there, for doing the #WSQ12 it was actually really different than the past one, I did some research online and with some friends, but we all had the same problem, that later one asking our teacher what would it be the problem we found out it was that it was because the string type wasn’t possible to use, so we did convert it to a character array, so we can use it. After finding this mistake, I was able to finish it.

Here are picture of the program running:


Here is the link to the code, if you want to check it:


Quiz #4

Hey there! This time, the Quiz #4 was only one exercise this time, but this doesn’t  meant it was easy, here is what our teacher ask us for:

  • Create a function called euler_calc with a single parameter precision. The value of precision is used to determine when to stop calculating. Your calculation will stop when the two consecutive values estimating e differ by less than precision (remember to use absolute value when calculating the difference between two values here).

Here is the link to the full PFD file where is all the instructions: http://kenscourses.com/tc101winter2016/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/quiz04.pdf

For doing so I visit the Wikipedia article that was added in the PDF so I know what to do. And look for more libraries to include.

Here is my code: https://gist.github.com/batmantec/d19e3ee10e10d52828ec169e4936c04e
