Animated Mathematics

Another one from the same place. I shall try putting in more pictures, my uncorrected papers are screaming at me right now. 🙂


As an experiment in pedagogy in the winter semester of 2016-17, I offered a course on discrete mathematics as a project based course. Students worked as teams in the lab on three projects, while there were some quizzes and a few lectures too. There were 66 students in the class. I offered three types of projects. Groups were formed randomly and were required to come up with their own project idea. Here is a sample of one of the game projects


This project was created by a my students Chaitya Sanghavi, Freya Shah, Nikhil Balwani, Purvang Shah

  • Create a game traditional or your own, using the MIT software scratch and analyze it.
  • Study an application of a finite state machine (FSM) and write a code to implement it.
  • Create a code that implements a graph-theory algorithm.

Project:1  Games

I got the students, most of whom had no programming experience, to learn scratch…

I have a huge interest in teaching and learning and an incurably optimistic attitude to the limit of sounding insane. Unless specified I always interpret words as per average public perception where I take the average over my known universe, the context unfortunately is only limited to my universe, but I hope neuroscience will change it sooner or later.
