I learned some more about binary and Hexadecimals today. Prior I had no idea what hexadecimals were, but I found out that they are base 16. I learned that binary are used of 1s and os and those represent ON and OFF.
For our project me and Karan decided to make a homework organizer and timer. We did this because according to our survey we found a serious problem with stress and homework. To fix this we decided to make a homework planner. Karan and I worked really well on this project. Karan did most of the code whilst I did the mind map, pseudo code and the testing document as well I helped and did some of the code.
Design Thinking Sentence: The students of HKIS suffer from stress mainly from homework, so we decided to create a program that helps them organize their homework, as many of them do not generally use planners or other forms of organization.
Teacher Survey Results:
Old pseudo code on our old code in the beginning of the project.
List of materials for Project:
A Mac laptop with Pycharm and TKInter
We used the GUI Python Programming Cookbook so there is no online resource on it but here is a link to it:
I felt like I was successful in I2P and this project as well. This project turned out to be very hard since we coded this in TKinter which is a completely new coding system that I have not coded with before this. There were a lot of challenges in I2P that I faced in which I think I did a very good job overcoming them. One of the challenges I faced was Pygame since I had not coded with pygame before but I was able to almost get my balance board Pygame code to work which I was very proud of. The final summative was really hard as well however I felt like I completed to the best of my ability and I am happy with my final product.
We made three surveys the first survey asking questions about what is wrong about HKIS and general complaints. We found on this survey lots of people said HKIS was very stressful and there is a lot of homework. Our second survey we asked how stressful HKIS is and asked how we could fix the homework problem. Our third survey asked the teachers about the homework. Our plan is to make a program to organize a students homework and to estimate how long it will take them to do their homework.
Was you initial design the same or different than your final design?
Our final design was just a little bit different than the initial idea, the main problem was that we did not have to much time also we did not have the materials needed to make a good backpack. Our initials design had more pockets on the outside and our final product has on pocket.
Where did you get stuck?
We got stuck on figuring out how to make the straps for the backpack since it would have taken too long to make since we only had 30 mins
What was you best idea?
I think my best idea was the pocket on the outside since you can put stuff in it without the items you put in the pocket falling out.
What can improve about your backpack?
I think the straps can improve since it was hard to put them on and the backpack would just fall to the floor every time you put the straps on.
