  1. My three areas of focus are creative writing, mathematics, technology. I plan to fuse all of these areas together and make a short narrative animation story of someone which incorporates mathematical problems.

    I thought about the math side in the story i would make, and i thought that the puzzles in The Da Vinci Code movie were great. So now i might want to do more ideas and imcorparate puzzles like that into my project!!!

    Finding examples of projects i wanted to is challenging because my idea is so weird. However i like the scratch animations i saw on http://scratch.mit.edu/
    where thier programing and ideas were very creative.

    For support on my senior project i was thinking of complying a whole bunch of people to help guide me. For example for the english side of things having Ms. Fay and Ms.Jenkin’s support would be helpful. Also for the math side Ms. Kress could give me a whole bunch of problems i could incorparate into things. For the tech side however i could go to my man Mr. Navvaro for tech support.

    • Awesome idea Ben. I look forward to doing these puzzles once you complete them. Just incorporate a vast amount of math and be sure to it all fits together perfectly. Keep it up.

  6. Hey Ben ~ The challenge you outlined in your first comment is quite interesting. It sounds like the spring break assignments helped to advance your thinking on the project, which is exciting. A couple of resources:

    I know the people who built this, which is kind of similar to your own interests – http://spotlight.macfound.org/blog/entry/students-solve-math-mysteries-in-sackboys-and-the-mysterious-proof/

    You might also want to check out early Sesame Street animations – you might be able to find these on YouTube, not sure.

    You should also check out Charles and Ray Eames – remind me in class, and I’ll show you the DVDs. They’re a team of designers who have used animation to investigate mathematical concepts.

    Are you interested in animation? Rather: Is it important to you that it’s an animation?
