Re: Homework: Python functions, am I missing something?

You guys are probably going too advanced for the question's scope. I'm almost certain it's D.

Re: Good games to play at LAN parties

For warcraft III:

If they're smart players who want some hardcore fun, play Rise of Winterchill AoS
If you want more of a super smash brothers, play perSonas AoS

Both excellent unique maps.

Re: Debate: Grades VS Knowledge

A quick misconception to correct though... the system doesn't advocate that one student would hold the entire class back, necessarily. Typically, each unit would have two cycles. The first cycle everyone is taught the same material, then the mastery test is taken, and the second cycle, the group wh...

Armored Core 4: For Answer

Despite the incredibly translated name, this game rocks. It's much more balanced in regulation 1.3 than most other games, and it's very fast. 1.2 was faster, but retardedly imbalanced. The game has hundreds of parts with insane variety and statistics into a lot of stats. Honestly it's so much fun to...

Re: Debate: Grades VS Knowledge

Thanks for the facts and opinions guys. I understand that a form of crowd control is necessary when it comes to assessment, but its ridiculous how some teachers teach to please the assessment system rather than enlightening a generation.

Re: Debate: Grades VS Knowledge

Oh. I'm sorry. I'm a senior in high school. I HATE doing nothing in class, and wasting time making teachers happy. All I like to do is learn, screw the grading system. This is why I started taking college classes in highschool, I got 42 credits completed entering freshman via PSEO. But this topic is...

Debate: Grades VS Knowledge

I recently made it into my future college's honors program through a great interview. The question I'm quite sure that pushed me past the line asked "What do you attribute to your low GPA of 3.66?" I basically answered how I'm a hard worker who has a passion for learning and nothing else. ...

Re: The Great Operating System Disscussion

Linux: Free. Powerful. Difficult. Customizable. Built upon "Do one and only one thing perfectly well" modularity philosophy. Almost zero downtime. You have looked at GNU Man pages, right? Linux is a Unix-like, but isn't built upon the same philosophy. "Those who don't understand Unix...

Re: Math Software

I am a huge fan of Qualculate!. Its library is also released open source. It allows you to parse mathematical strings, generate latex, et cetera.

Re: Homework Help??
