## parked lesson plans

 Greetings edu-sig peers. Kirby from Portland, Oregon (MLK Weedend, 2010) FYI here's me posting in a recent thread, Philippines user group: http://groups.google.com/group/pinoy-python-users/browse_thread/thread/ad517401b06d7100?hl=enParking some pointers, recycling some good stuff: Pythonic Math Lesson Plan:  Simple Groups A simple and gentle introduction to group theory, well trammeled in the literature, uses modulo arithmetic on tiny finite sets. Python's operator overloading puts adding modulo N within reach of any snake wrangler. Concepts:  GCD, totatives, relatively prime http://mathworld.wolfram.com/RelativelyPrime.html Pythonic Math Lesson Plan:  A Game of Life Creatures move around a virtual chess board according to various rules.   A time loop keeps computing successive frames. http://4dsolutions.net/ocn/python/jungle.py Pythonic Math Lesson Plan:  T-Mod with a Turtle Trace the plane net for 1/120th of a Rhombic Triacontahedron.  Use the Standard Library turtle module, print to paper, cut and fold, 60 left handed, 60 right handed. Example implementation: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/edu-sig/2009-December/009683.htmlRelated lessons:  trace A, B modules, same volume as T modules _______________________________________________ Edu-sig mailing list [hidden email] http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/edu-sig
