Default Assign4-My Kryptonite - 02-20-2013, 04:01 AM

Okay, so my assignment was late. Assignment 4 was fun, laborious, and confusing all at the same time. I actually ended up doing two assignment as I couldn't get my fish to behave at the end of my assignment. I am having a very difficult time understanding functions. Should I be adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing? Is there a formula for what you want to do?

My first Assignment (the one I really wanted to turn in) had all kinds of issues. After creating a lot of methods for my three characters I couldn't bring all the pieces together cohesively. So I put that one to the side and worked all day yesterday and this morning on the one that I just submitted.

Here's what I learned:

1. Using the While statement has a science behind it. I was able to sucessfully capsize my sailboat a countless amount of times.

2. Using the While statement worked brilliantly for my fish but after performing their back flips they didn't want to resurface. I know there is a variable and function for this but where do I even start.

3. I was able to successfully create a method to make my horse walk, my fish swim in a close to realistic fashion, and make my horse sing.

4. I have gotten a lot better with the orientation of objects in my world. I am able to quickly determine which statements to call for turn and roll. etc.

5. Oh yes, I am still in dark about functions and am seriously confused. I will be going in for a one-on-one session.

6. I was dreaming about Alice programming while asleep last night. LOL!!

All in all, this was a brilliant experience for me. I would still like to see my first assignment completed. Even though I had to come up with a totally different storyboard. I have learned soooooooo much from my mistakes and can only hope that I will improve over time.
