Designing a game with spesific goals


To design a game with specific goals

[lo 4.4]

Here is a variation on an old children’s game that can be played on the playground, or even in a hall.

The outlines can be drawn with chalk. Two of the same “patterns” can be drawn, so that two people or two teams can play simultaneously.

Here is the key:

L = left foot

R = right foot

X = Do not tread in this box

L/R = Land with both feet at the same time.

There are 12 “spaces” (rectangles and circles) altogether.

Player 1 (of both teams) starts when the sign is given. When the last space has been reached without any fault having been made, the player runs back to his / her team and the next player starts as soon as player number 1 has joined the back of the row.

If a player makes any mistake, he / she must start from the beginning again.

You might think that this game could be made more interesting by making the goals which are aimed at, more challenging. Redesign the game and add what you think is necessary to make it more interesting. Remember that you must be able to demonstrate in practice that it is “playable”.

If you don’t like this game at all, you may design any other game. The most important feature is that there must be interesting / challenging goals, and you must be able to demonstrate how the game is played.

The more people there are who are interested in playing the game, the higher your mark will be.

what does nano mean?
Anassong Reply
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?

there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
