Numerical Calculation Standard

June 18, 2018

Just a reminder – the numerical calculation standard does NOT have an in-class test.  Instead, you either need to submit a video or show me your code in person by the due date of 6/20/18.  Late submissions will not be accepted.

Once you turn it in, you can continue to improve and resubmit your calculation just like any other standard.

Here is how I will grade it:

  • 1 point: There is a calculation, but it doesn’t work.
  • 2 points: There is a calculation, it technically runs (no errors), but it doesn’t do what it is supposed to do.
  • 3 points: A successful calculation for a constant velocity problem.
  • 4 points: A successful calculation for a constant force problem.
  • 5 points: A successful calculation for a problem with a non-constant force.
