Inactive Projects
{{:Colour_The_Part/status}}
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.
 
===[[Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Math_Maze|Math Maze]]===
{{:Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Math_Maze/status}}
[[User:kdh7733|Kevin Hockey]] and [[User:TS1593|Tom Sekovski]] are making maze style game (built upon the pre-existing game [[http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Maze Maze]]) where at each decision moment the player has to answer a question. Some questions include: adding/subtracting numbers, factoring, word and fraction problems
 
===[[School Server/RIT|schoolserver.rit.edu]]===
The XO school Server, or XS, is one of the products of the OLPC project, designed to complement the XO laptop. It is a Linux-based OS (a Fedora-based distribution) engineered to be installed on generic low-end servers.
When we deploy one laptop per child, we must also provide additional infrastructure extending the capabilities of the laptops. While the laptops are self-sufficient for many learning activities, other activities and services depend on the School Server providing connectivity, shared resources and services. Services, tools and activities running on the School Server allow asynchronous interaction, can use larger storage capacity, and take advantage of the processing power of the XS.
 
===[[Teacher's Tools]]===
{{:Teacher's_Tools/status}}
[[User:acj3840|Alex Jones]] is planning on creating a tool for teachers to help evaluate how well their students have learned certain material. It will be similar to Assimilate but help the teachers learn the weak points of their students' knowledge.
====[[Pop_Quiz]]====
{{:Pop_Quiz/status}}
PopQuiz is a tool primarily for teachers, to allow informal testing of students in real-time. The teacher poses questions to students on-the-fly, students answer over the mesh, and results are immediately gathered and displayed to the teacher.
===[[Flash Card Game - Assimilate]]===
===[[Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Fun Towers|Fun Towers]]===
{{:Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Fun_Towers/status}}
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.
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.
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.

{{:Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Muthris/status}}
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.

===[[Produce Puzzle]]===
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".

===[[Teacher Reporting]]===
Our goal is to allow results and / or grades, from student activities to be readily available to teachers.
- Based on their wants and needs,teachers can then generate custom reports on a class or Individual. Teachers Have the ability to determine what types of problems students are finding most difficult.
- Additionally we envision logic in the module which analyses student activity and checks for a yes || no interpretation of each student's understanding of Curriculum Standards.
