Today is our final in-class time for the Explore PT. I expect we'll upload to the College Board digital portfolio sometime in mid-October. Make sure you save at least two copies of your artifact and your responses: perhaps one in Google Drive and one on a flashdrive or your home computer (backups are always important!)
Activator and TOTD (on our way to Mr. Walstead's ...) I will give you a number. Based on this number, you have the following assignment. Open the directions and rubric for the Explore PT.
On an index card, write your name and number. Then list a minimum of three requirements and/or things you should check. List at least two pitfalls or things to avoid. We will combine all of these to create a checklist.
Eating at Quonk: A tough puzzle
A group of friends: 2 women (Alice and Babs) and 2 men (Zach and Yabu) like to go out on dates to cool restaurants in pairs. There are four combinations they date in (Alice-Zach, Alice-Yabu, Babs-Zach and Babs-Yabu).
The favourite restaurant of one of the men and one of the women is a place called Quonk. However if those two eat together they always try new restaurants as do the other pair if together. Therefore when exactly one and only one of the particular man and woman in question is on a date they eat at Quonk.
When Alice goes out with Zach they go to Quonk.
Which, if any, other pair eat at Quonk?
WARM-UP: Using RAFT, write a reflection in your abstraction notebook. You have until 10:30 to do this. Show me your notes and score before you get to work on your Performance Task. The objective is to re-focus all of us on the Explore Performance Task now that we are at the halfway point.
Role: Take on the role on an AP Grader
Audience: Your audience is the College Board, who is responsible for validity and reliability of your AP score
1. For each row of the rubric, 1-5, rate your current artifact and response as low, medium or high.
2. Write your reasoning for the each rating.
Topic: Communication of a computing innovation and its impact
