Ideation

WHAT IS IDEATION MODE

Ideation is the mode of the design process in which you concentrate on idea generation. Mentally it represents a process of “going wide” in terms of concepts fro building prototypes and getting innovative solutions into hands of your user

  TOP 3                                  

What is binary?

  1. Binary is a coding system that uses the numbers 1 and 0 to make sentences, pictures, ect on a computer or electrical device.
  2. base 10 is the numbers 0-9 and base 2 is numbers 1 and 0.
  3. Computers use binary because it is a much easier way to code for computers because they process information faster like that.

Problem Solving: Boat

Yes, My group did do the four step plan because we first needed to find the problem, then we had to find a plan to do it, next we had to do the plan , finally we had to reflect on what happened.

The reflection step because after we found the problem we retried it and made a better boat.

The first step because i had less information in that step.

Yes everyone in my group did contribute evenly because we all put in our ideas in the boat.

I helped make the boat and gave some ideas.

I could use this problem solving process by doing it in complicated situations.

Tessellation

Tessellation: is a shape that could connect to itself if repeated

iteration:the repetition of a process or utterance

Dilation: A dilation is a transformation (notation ) that produces an image that is the same shape as the original, but is a different size. A dilation stretches or shrinks the original figure.

Tessellations originated in ancient Rome when artist put them around paintings to make the artwork look much larger then it originally was.Their are two kinds of tessellations one called Alhambra. They are made of colored tiles forming patterns, many truly symmetrical, geometrical and beautiful. Escher’s version is a second type. He used it to make plants animals and humans in the tessellation final position.

Tessellations connect to computer science because they are like coding because with one wrong (Code) it will not fit in or work out.Basically, this is also what happens with the colored dots on your computer screen: they’re lined up and colored to create a bigger picture.

How does tessellations connect with computer science and coding?

This connects to computer science and coding because you have to find a shape that will fit with all the other shapes like coding how you have to find a program that will fit with all of the other programs.

Communication

Scenario: Breaking up with a significant other

Communication Method: Face-to-Face

Reason: I would do it face to face because they are my significant other and i feel like i have to tell them face to face to let them know properly with emotions.

What Data is available: The break up with emotion

Who is accessible to the data: The significant other

What can be learned from the data in Aggregate: That most people will like to do it that way too

 

Scenario: Asking parents permission to do something when you think they will likely say ‘No’

Communication Method:  Face-to-Face

Reason: I would do it face to face because if i did it face to face they would have most likely thought about it because i could beg and tell them in complete description who is going and where we are going

What Data is available: Asking to go to a place

Who is accessible to the data: My parents

What can be learned from the data in Aggregate: People will do the same thing

 

 

Scenario:Get help on homework

Communication Method: Snap chat or Kik

Reason:so they could send me pictures of the homework with the right page number

What Data is available: the question of what homework i have

Who is accessible to the data: My friends in that class

What can be learned from the data in Aggregate: The answer to that homework

 

 

Scenario:Gossip about someone not around you

Communication Method: Snap chat

Reason: The conversation could erase in 10 seconds and so nobody around you could hear too.

 

 

Scenario:Gossip about someone who could hear you if you spoke

Communication Method: Snap chat

Reason: The conversation could erase in 10 seconds and so nobody around you could hear too, like the person that i am talking about.

How does the type of data being exchanged affect what method you choose:  It affects the method that you use because if you need to tell emotion or something that wont be able without face to face or you have to say it through electronic device because of something else.
