  1. Processing: Visual Sort - Write a program that sorts 20 bars visually using various sorts or a sort of your choice.
    1. Step 1: sort integers:
      1. Input: a list of random numbers that you pick
      2. Output: a list out numbers in order
    2. Step 2: make it visual with rectangles
  2. Processing: Physics - Create objects that represent physics. You can make it more realistic, like with gravity if you are able.
  3. Processing: Simulation - Pick a simulation that will teach me something.
  4. Processing: Make a Game - To make a game, give it interactions and a winning condition (Ludus and Paida).
  5. Processing (Bonus): Interaction - Make any of the above MORE interactive.
  6. Github - You can store your processing projects directly there and run them with Processing.js - Read: (Similar to yesterday)


  • Blog Post: Every project should have a post. If you made 3 projects, then there are 3 posts. Have images for what you did. Link to the website online so people can see each program.
  • Blog Post: Write about programming languages. How do computers understand instructions? What language do they use? What language do we use to give computers instructions? Explain what are high and low level languages and how computers can understand our code (talk about compilers).
  • Improve your past work: Double check your work, and make sure your blog is complete. Make sure you have completed all projects. Finish anything you didn't get to do today. Improve anything that you can! Lots of pictures!!!
  • Blog Post: Game Review - You Only Live Once

Note: From now on ALL game reviews must address Ludus, Paida, and Narrative.
