==Project Description==<br />
Incorporating math and color theory onto a platformer, create a fun and educational activity targeted at 4th grade Math students. The activity uses elements of platform games with obstacles and puzzle solving to teach addition and multiplication of fractions while keeping the player entertained.<br />
<br />
This project is a part of the [[Math4Team/RIT|RIT Math4Team]] Educational initiative.<br />
<br />
Tone words: color, fractions, logic, problem solving<br />
<br />
==Basic Concept==<br />
<br />
The game revolves around teaching the players fractional multiplication on multiple levels using pre-generated sets of fractions. The player must navigate and overcome obstacles to reach fractional paint buckets which change their color to match the specified fractions and color present on the bucket. For instance, a 1/6th red paint bucket will be colored 1/6th of the red spectrum and have the fraction 1/6th visible on it. After the player reaches a fractional paint bucket, the color then follows behind the player as a trail painting the background as the player moves. When the player reaches multiple paint buckets the two trails combine to display the final color similar to the proper exit doorway. These elements are required to advance on the level as they also open locks to the exit doorways. Choosing the correct exit doorway by determining the proper Least Common Denominator (LDC) advances the player to the next level, while choosing the wrong doorway resets the level. Wrong exit choices result in an explanation of the user’s mathematical mistake, a time penalty, and a new set of fractions for the level from a pre-generated list.<br />
Player’s score is determined by time required to complete the level, selecting a wrong doorway resets the level but the timer continues to count up.<br />
Player’s avatar continually bounces and using colors collected from the paint bucket can use special abilities such as enhanced jumps and speed to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles.<br />

<br><br><br />
II. Preparation/Materials<br><br />
Before the class has started, the teacher should familiarize themselves with how to play the game. Before the activity has begun, the students need to bring out their XO laptops and start up the "Colour The Part" game. When the game has started up, the students need to put in their username and begin the game. After that, the first part of the game should explain what the student needs to do to finish the activity. Each student needs to have their own XO laptop.<br />
<br><br><br />
III. Goals<br><br />
1. Learn how to compare and order fractions and equivalent fractions <br><br />
2. Learn how to multiply and add effectively.<br><br />
3. Learn to determine how change in one variable relates to a change in a second variable.<br><br />
4. Let the students have fun while learning.<br><br />
5. Have the students gain puzzle solving skills.<br />
<br><br><br />
IV. Objectives<br><br />
1. Guide students into first level<br> <br />
2. Let tutorial level teach students how to play<br><br />
3. Introduce the students to what concepts they are learning throughout the game<br><br />
4. Let the students write down the problems on paper if they're having trouble with the ordering of fractions.<br />
<br><br><br />
V. Rationale<br><br />
The purpose of the game is to promote math education through the use of fun and interactive game software. The game will be designed to teach students to use their math skills in a non-workbook setting.<br />

<br><br><br />
II. Preparation/Materials<br><br />
Before the class has started, the teacher should familiarize themselves with how to play the game. Before the activity has begun, the students need to bring out their XO laptops and start up the "Colour The Part" game. When the game has started up, the students need to put in their username and begin the game. After that, the first part of the game should explain what the student needs to do to finish the activity. Each student needs to have their own XO laptop.<br />
<br><br><br />
III. Goals<br><br />
1. Learn how to compare and order fractions and equivalent fractions <br><br />
2. Learn how to multiply and add effectively.<br><br />
3. Learn to determine how change in one variable relates to a change in a second variable.<br><br />
4. Let the students have fun while learning.<br><br />
5. Have the students gain puzzle solving skills.<br />
<br><br><br />
IV. Objectives<br><br />
1. Guide students into first level<br> <br />
2. Let tutorial level teach students how to play<br><br />
3. Introduce the students to what concepts they are learning throughout the game<br><br />
4. Let the students write down the problems on paper if they're having trouble with the ordering of fractions.<br />
<br><br><br />
V. Rationale<br><br />
The purpose of the game is to promote math education through the use of fun and interactive game software. The game will be designed to teach students to use their math skills in a non-workbook setting.<br />

==Project Description==<br />
Incorporating math and color theory onto a platformer, create a fun and educational activity targeted at 4th grade Math students. The activity uses elements of platform games with obstacles and puzzle solving to teach addition and multiplication of fractions while keeping the player entertained.<br />
<br />
This project is a part of the [[Math4Team/RIT|RIT Math4Team]] Educational initiative.<br />
<br />
Tone words: color, fractions, logic, problem solving<br />
<br />
==Basic Concept==<br />
<br />
The game revolves around teaching the players fractional multiplication on multiple levels using pre-generated sets of fractions. The player must navigate and overcome obstacles to reach fractional paint buckets which change their color to match the specified fractions and color present on the bucket. For instance, a 1/6th red paint bucket will be colored 1/6th of the red spectrum and have the fraction 1/6th visible on it. After the player reaches a fractional paint bucket, the color then follows behind the player as a trail painting the background as the player moves. When the player reaches multiple paint buckets the two trails combine to display the final color similar to the proper exit doorway. These elements are required to advance on the level as they also open locks to the exit doorways. Choosing the correct exit doorway by determining the proper Least Common Denominator (LDC) advances the player to the next level, while choosing the wrong doorway resets the level. Wrong exit choices result in an explanation of the user’s mathematical mistake, a time penalty, and a new set of fractions for the level from a pre-generated list.<br />
Player’s score is determined by time required to complete the level, selecting a wrong doorway resets the level but the timer continues to count up.<br />
Player’s avatar continually bounces and using colors collected from the paint bucket can use special abilities such as enhanced jumps and speed to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles.<br />
<br />
==Implemented Domains==<br />
*4.N.4 Select, use, and explain models to relate common fractions and mixed numbers (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, 1/12, and 11/2), find equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals, and order fractions. <br />
*4.N.10 Select and use appropriate operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) to solve problems, including those involving money. <br />
*4.N.12 Add and subtract (up to five-digit numbers) and multiply (up to three digits by two digits) accurately and efficiently. <br />
*4.N.18 Use concrete objects and visual models to add and subtract common fractions. <br />
*4.P.6 Determine how change in one variable relates to a change in a second variable, e.g., input-output tables. <br />

=====How I Got Involved in this Project=====<br />
Although I'd heard about OLPC before, I didn't really know a lot about the laptops until last Spring when I went to a seminar in GCCIS (RIT's Golisano College for Computing and Information Sciences) and some people who work with OLPC came to talk about the project and the laptops. I really liked the whole concept of the project, the design of the XO's and the thought behind the design. I also learned that OLPC was looking for more people to help out with the Networking side of the project, so I signed up.<br />

==How To Play==<br />
Platformer. Jump around and into different areas. Avoid obstacles.<br />
<br />
==Lesson Plan==<br />
<br />
I. Standards Addressed4.N.4, 4.N.10, 4.N.12, 4.N.18, 4.P.6<br />
<br />
II. Preparation/Materials<br />
Before the activity has begun, the students need to bring out their XO laptops and start up the "Colour The Part" game. When the game has started up, the students need to put in their username and begin the game. After that, the first part of the game should explain what the student needs to do to finish the activity. Each student needs to have their own XO laptop.<br />
<br />
III. Goals<br />
1. Learn how to use operations to solve problems<br />
2. Learn multiplication and division facts<br />
<br />
1. Implemented Domains:4.N.12, 4.N.4, 4.N.7 <br><br />
2. Preparation/Materials:<br><br />
*Each student must be instructed on how to use the laptop in gameboy mode, using the up/down right/left arrow pad.<br />
*The students should already know the implemented domains as this game is more of a way to re-affirm what they already know through exploring their puzzle solving skills.<br />
*Each student should have their own XO.<br />
3. Goals:<br><br />
*This game is meant to be a way in which students can cement concepts they have already learned, but they'll be doing it in a way where they'll also be having fun and learning puzzle solving skills by doing it in a maze-like environment.<br />
*Have the students review multiplication, fractions and factorization.<br />
*Have the students build puzzle solving skills.<br />

== [[Colour_The_Part|Colour The Part]] ==<br />
Incorporating math and color theory onto a platformer, create a fun and educational activity targeted at 4th grade Math students. The activity uses elements of platform games with obstacles and puzzle solving to teach addition and multiplication of fractions while keeping the player entertained. <br />
<br />
== [[TEXTadventure|T.E.X.T Adventure]] ==<br />
T.E.X.T Adventure is an RIT Math4Team game. This is a Dungeons and Dragons adventure style game where players will have to solve various math puzzles to defeat enemies and proceed through the dungeons.<br />
<br />
==[[Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Math_Munchers|Math Munchers]]==<br />
[[User:kdh7733|Kevin Hockey]] and Tom Sekovski are planning to put a new spin on the age old classic. Slightly different than the original, our Math Munchers will features six levels of puzzle type gameplay centered around a different curricular item for each level.<br />

==[[Flash Card Game - Assimilate]]==<br />
This project is one of [[Math4Team/RIT/Projects | many small projects]] focused on developing 4th grade math games which will run on the OLPC XO. We are [[Math4Team/RIT/Alumni/Spring-2009| RIT students]] who are working on this with the help of other developers who become interested in our projects.<br />
The focus of this project is to turn an existing game ([[olpc:Assimilate|Assimilate]]) into a math based flash card game which will hopefully be included on future XO's.<br />

==[[Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Fun Towers|Fun Towers]]==<br />
Fun Towers is a pre-existing game that can be found online in several version (http://www.funnytowers.com/ is one example) that has been ported to the XO, written in Squeak. Our team is modifying this purely numerical/card based game into one that can be used as a teaching tool as part of the 4th grade math project.<br />
Our initial goals in modifying the pre-existing game remain relatively simple and achievable, and our goal is to produce verifiable results that can be used to point to the very preliminary success of the math4 program, while more in-depth projects are still in development.<br />
The game itself is simple, users are given a card and with it are able to remove from one of 3 pyramids of cards a card that is one greater or one lower in value. This card that has been removed is the users new card, and any cards that were covered by the removed card are now in play.<br />

==[[Image:Lemon_Icon.svg|24px]][[Lemonade Stand]]==<br />
Lemonade stand (or more likely, *Insert produce here* stand) is a collaboration project at RIT. It is designed to test children on fractions, working with money, estimation, and other math topics. While our time restraints limit the extent to which we can implement features, the current goal is a feature complete program even if lacking in graphics. We plan on having a system based on buying and selling commodities and an eventual season based economy. <br />
<br />
The largest and most complex task of the project will be the introduction of a basic AI to handle the economy, the use of graphics, and localization. We are planning on introducing the game with a generic currency model while trying to find a commodity that either works worldwide, or is easy to replace for regional types. At the very least, we plan on having a feature complete text model that can be finished by other interested parties.<br />

==[[Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Muthris|Muthris]]==<br />
Muthris is a math themed, Tetris-based game inspired by Cuyo. Players control falling blocks which must be grouped in certain math related ways in-order to clear that grouping from the board. The level is lost when the board fills up with blocks. Players learn math skills by fun repetition of simple mathematical problems and the grouping of sets of numbers. Levels are abstracted away from the core game. This allows one to simple drop in new levels and learn different mathematical concepts.<br />

<br />
==[[Produce Puzzle]]==<br />
The object of the game is to solve a system of equations with unknowns represented by fruits. The player is given the column sums and row sums, and from there he must determine the value of each fruit. The game difficulty can be changed, and it ranges from solving 3x3 fruit equations, all the way up to 9x9 fruit grids.<br />
<br />
We, [[User:Classclownfish | Abbi Honeycutt]] and [[User:Nikeunltd| Kennedy Kong]] from Rochester Institute of Technology, has taken over this project. Previous creators were Matthew Michihara, Elizabeth Deng, and Aaron Macris from University of Southern California during their "Code for a cause OLPC Hack-a-thon".<br />
==[[/Question Support API|Question Support API]]==<br />
The purpose of the Question Support API is to provide a unified method for Activities to access standardized format question files. The API currently supports the use of multiple choice questions with a single correct answer and no partial credit. Currently, the API only reports questions in a plain text format from Moodle format question files.<br />

<br />
==[[Teacher Reporting]]==<br />
We, Wesley Dillingham, and Jeremiah Green hope to utilize modified Moodle modules and a customized XS School Server operating system. Our goal is to allow results and / or grades, from student activities to be readily available to teachers. Based on their wants and needs, the teachers can then generate custom reports on a class or student and have the ability to determine what types of problems students are finding most difficult. Additionally we would like to implement logic in the module which analyzes student activity and checks for a strict yes or no interpretation of whether or not each student understands various curriculum standards. In the end we imagine the XS environment running on an XO itself, allowing the teachers the same portability as the students.<br />

==Math4 at RIT and in Rochester NY==<br />
'''It started as a [[Math4Team/Resources/Curriculum Chart|big idea]].'''<br />
<br />
Then [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ke4qqq Dave Nalley], a [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors Fedora Ambassador], asked for XO laptops to work on that big idea.<br />
<br />
Meanwhile, in Rochester NY on January 22, 2009, an [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Rochester,_NY OLPC Community SIG] was starting. At this initial meeting [[User:KRobinson| Karlie Robinson]] learned that Rochester Institute of Technology Professor, [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Stephen_Jacobs Stephen Jacobs], wanted to teach a class around the XO using machines being donated by Nortel. <br />
<br />
On February 7, 2009 David Nalley announced the [https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-olpc-list/2009-February/msg00033.html Fedora Developers XO program]. A pilot program in North America that would begin to tackle the [[Math4Team/Resources/Curriculum Chart|4th grade math curriculum]] using volunteers equipped with 100 donated XO laptops.<br />
<br />
This presented an interesting opportunity for the Fedora Project to work with RIT. RIT wants to do an XO class but doesn't have many machines. Fedora is looking for volunteers and has machines to give. Talks began. <br />
<br />
On February 26, 2009 it was settled. The Rochester NY OLPC Community SIG and Professor Jacobs class would participate in the Math4 project. <br />
<br />
To prepare for the first day of class at RIT, the following has been done;<br />
<br />
* David Nalley has sent RIT 25 XO laptops for the class. <br />
* The FourthGradeMath mailing list[http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/fourthgrademath/] has become active<br />
* Steve Jacobs has updated the mailing list [http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/fourthgrademath/2009-March/000028.html] with details about the [[OLPC:RIT_honors_seminar,_developing_for_the_OLPC_XO | RIT Honors Seminar, Developing for the OLPC XO]]<br />

==Math4 at RIT FAQ==<br />
;What year are most of the RIT Students?<br />
:Most are Jr and Sr in their Major field of study<br />
;What are they learning?<br />
:Their participation in the Fedora Ambassador North America push for a 4th grade math curriculum will give them experience with Open Source Software development. Beyond that, the students will be choosing what areas of development they participate in. <br />
;Are they math majors? Eduction majors? mixed volunteers?<br />
:As of this writing, we do have a mix of community volunteers working on this project. The RIT students are divided between Computer Science, Networking, Information Tech, Software engineering and Telecommunications Majors. The students also have the benefit of Eric Grace, a New York State Certified K-12 teacher, as the co-professor for the course. <br />
;Do they have 4th graders lined up?<br />
:Some. The Fedora Ambassador network has volunteers with a vast array of backgrounds and I do know of a small test group in California.<br />

<br />
This project is a part of the [[Math4Team/RIT|RIT Math4Team]] Educational initiative.<br />
<br />
Tone words: color, fractions, logic, problem solving<br />
<br />
==Basic Concept==<br />
<br />
The game revolves around teaching the players fractional multiplication on multiple levels using pre-generated sets of fractions. The player must navigate and overcome obstacles to reach fractional paint buckets which change their color to match the specified fractions and color present on the bucket. For instance, a 1/6th red paint bucket will be colored 1/6th of the red spectrum and have the fraction 1/6th visible on it. After the player reaches a fractional paint bucket, the color then follows behind the player as a trail painting the background as the player moves. When the player reaches multiple paint buckets the two trails combine to display the final color similar to the proper exit doorway. These elements are required to advance on the level as they also open locks to the exit doorways. Choosing the correct exit doorway by determining the proper Least Common Denominator (LDC) advances the player to the next level, while choosing the wrong doorway resets the level. Wrong exit choices result in an explanation of the user’s mathematical mistake, a time penalty, and a new set of fractions for the level from a pre-generated list.<br />
Player’s score is determined by time required to complete the level, selecting a wrong doorway resets the level but the timer continues to count up.<br />
Player’s avatar continually bounces and using colors collected from the paint bucket can use special abilities such as enhanced jumps and speed to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles.<br />

=====How I Got Involved in this Project=====<br />
Although I'd heard about OLPC before, I didn't really know a lot about the laptops until last Spring when I went to a seminar in GCCIS (RIT's Golisano College for Computing and Information Sciences) and some people who work with OLPC came to talk about the project and the laptops. I really liked the whole concept of the project, the design of the XO's and the thought behind the design. I also learned that OLPC was looking for more people to help out with the Networking side of the project, so I signed up.<br />
<br />
===Current Project===<br />
