THE PROBLEM How to save the state (of a UI, for instance) so that it survives even when the application is closed/ killed The state should be restored when the application is opened again: to the user it is as if the application has always been there We will consider a UI with an editable text ﬁeld, a checkbox, and a seekbar Solution: use the facilities provided by (and follow the rules dictated by) the platform’s frameworks ANDROID: ACTIVITIES AND APPLICATIONS UIs are managed inside activities An application may contain several activities Activities are independent by a large extent, but they share some resources associated with the application (e.g., the user ID) An activity may be destroyed by the OS while the application that hosts it survives. Later on, a new instance of the same activity may be created ANDROID: INSTANCE STATE If an activity is destroyed and recreated by the OS (e.g., because the screen is rotated): the new activity is a new instance of the old one...

In this text, the main concentration is placed on the solid modeling modules used for part design. The general procedures required in creating solid models, engineering drawings, and assemblies are illustrated. How to start Autodesk Inventor depends on the type of workstation and the particular software configuration you are using. With most Windows systems, you may select Autodesk Inventor on the Start menu or select the Autodesk Inventor icon on the desktop. Consult your instructor or technical support personnel if you have difficulty starting the software. The program takes a while to load, so be patient. The tutorials in this text are based on the assumption that you are using Autodesk Inventor’s default settings. If your system has been customized for other uses, contact your technical support personnel to restore the default software configuration. Parametric Modeling Fundamentals Using Autodesk Inventor 7-3 The Screen Layout and Get Started toolbar Once the program is loaded into the memory, the Inventor window appears on the screen with the Get Started toolbar options activated. Note that the Get Started toolbar contains helpful information in regards to using the Inventor software. For example, clicking the What’s New option will bring up the internet browser, which contains the list of new features that are included in this release of Autodesk Inventor.
Mobile Communications: Lower Costs with Cisco Instant Connect Push to Talk Solution Challenge Organizations have used numerous forms of communications in efforts to increase productivity. Simple push-totalk (PTT) solutions were an early answer; advances in technology have also introduced instant messaging, text messaging, unified communications, and collaboration applications as ways to perform group communications. Some reasons organizations have shifted away from PTT are to attempt to reduce costs by using their existing IT infrastructure for mobile communications or to improve collaboration with mobile personnel by giving them voice, instant messaging, and video capabilities in addition to PTT services. Pushing a button to instantly connect to a group is making a comeback; many organizations are returning to pushto-talk (PTT) instant communications to drive operational productivity in their environments. But organizations need a better PTT solution. New alternatives from carriers require a monthly fee. In addition, they might not provide coverage in all areas, hampering communications when it really counts.

Okay, so what is a robot? Per definition of en.wikipedia.org, the Holder of All Human Knowledge, a robot is: a mechanical device that can perform physical tasks. A robot may act under the direct control of a human (eg. the robotic arm of the space shuttle) or autonomously under the control of a pre-programmed computer. In the context of Science Olympiad and other small engineering competitions, we are looking at the first type, human control. There are plenty of opportunities to put autonomous features into a Science Olympiad robot, but if you are reading this for content, it is likely beyond your scope and unnecessary. Therefore, for the purposes of this text only, a robot will be defined as: A mechanical device, operated under the direct control of a human, that is engineered to perform a specific task or accomplish a goal. In this case, the goal is to compete in Science Olympiad's Robot Ramble event. And win. More on that later. I'm not smart enough to build a robot! Yes you are. Modern technology has developed to the point at which it permeates our lives. One side effect of this is that it is much easier to learn and try out than in years past. The hobby robotics market is only increasing, and there are a number of companies that specifically make products catered to robots and their builders. Full directions and kits are available to build or program small robots. In some cases, they're even premade, and all you have to do is mess with them. This is often the best way to go about learning.
Imagine examining hundreds of rows of raw data in Excel in an attempt to find a pattern or trend. Thankfully one of the tools we can use in Excel to make this task simpler is Conditional Formatting. Just another way Excel makes your data display, other than a chart. The Conditional Formatting features are color scales, icon sets and data bars to name a few. When to Use Excel’s Conditional Formatting: If you want to be informed in real time Answer questions visually Analyze data: find exceptions, find relationships, find trends, etc Enhance data presentations You can choose from inbuilt Conditional Formatting rules like: Top 10 or Bottom 10 using percentages, average or item Greater than, less than or equal to Text that contains a specific word or phrase A date occurring And even identify duplicate values Or you can insert a formula and create a custom conditional format. Color coding can be simple like font color, font style and cell fill, or more elaborate with icons, color scales or data bars. 1 Conditional Formatting Examples How to Apply Conditional Formatting: Select the range of cells you want formatted. From the Home tab go to the Styles group and select Conditional Formatting. The menu will appear with your formatting options. When you choose one of the options a cascading menu will appear. 2 Depending on which option you choose you will be prompted to make more selections. Note: You can specify a custom format or use one of the default formats. You can choose to format the cell fill, font style, color, size, bold, italic, underline and more. Remove Conditional Formatting Rules: Click the Conditional Formatting command. Select Clear Rules. A cascading menu appears. Choose to clear rules from the entire worksheet or the selected cells.

Introduce you to a powerful software tool in order to create clear and meaningful presentations Importance: Microsoft PowerPoint has basically become the industry standard for giving presentations. You will need to become proficient in it during the NASA RISE program in order to give weekly presentations on scientists of color, and a final presentation on the research project that you will be working on. What to hand in: N/A Goals: After this activity, you will be able to: • • • Software: Effectively organize a presentation Create aesthetically pleasing slides Insert images and charts Microsoft PowerPoint SECTION 0: PREPARING FOR A PRESENTATION: Why do we give presentations: The scientific world revolves around sharing information. This can be done in written, graphic, or verbal form. It is ULTRA important that you be able to communicate in all forms. This can make or break your career. You need to understand the factors that influence your preparation. Your purpose, the audience, and the context in which you are to deliver your presentation should determine the content, organization, tone, and the mediums (slides, video, etc...) you use. Figure 1: Factors Affecting Presentation Planning What is critical for success in a good presentation? Good content - If your presentation has the right content, you are half way to making a great presentation. The ability to include the correct content is a strong function: • • How well you know your audience How your presentation is organized. Is it logical? Interest - Is the content worthy of the audience's time? • It is easier to give a presentation to 5 interested people than to 100 people who are bored stiff. Make sure you have targeted the correct audience to avoid this situation. • Even if you "peg" your audience correctly the first time, you should make sure you emphasize the reason(s) why your presentation is important. Clarity - Your ability to explain clearly with words, text, and graphics determines how clearly your message comes across. • Use your storyboard (you will learn about this in a few sections below) to ...
In the first PowerPoint tutorial you learned how to create and save a new presentation (the Screenbeans slide show). You saw a sample slide show (The Tudor Monarchs). You learned how to prepare an outline, you typed text for each slide, added clip art, and set timings. You added an effect to enhance the slide transition, you selected a color scheme, and may have even created a new background effect. You changed the printer settings so that you can print out handouts rather than just individual slides of your shows. For many classrooms and for most K-12 students, what you learned in chapter 9 is just fine; it’s all you need to know. But, if you're ready to take the next step and learn some more advanced skills with PowerPoint, or if you teach computer-savvy students who want more challenging skills to master, this chapter's for you. Most PowerPoint presentations you see in school or at work are what are called linear presentations. That is, each slide is designed to proceed one slide right after another. The first slide transitions to the second, which transitions to the third, and so forth. For many educational tasks, this is fine. But, what if... What if you want your students to create an interactive story, where, for example, younger kids could read on Slide One a story about a dragon, then choose, on Slide Two, any one of three possible places that the dragon could go? By clicking on the word "desert," the show would move to a slide describing what happens to the dragon in the desert. If the student clicks on the word "forest," a different slide sequence appears with another ending. The learner thus participates, not by simply clicking on slide after slide in one, linear direction, but by making choices that affect what slide comes next, thus making the presentation interactive and non-linear.
This lesson introduces you to the basic features of PowerPoint which are particularly valuable in the teaching and learning environment. You will learn how to use PowerPoint to capture your ideas in outline form and convert those ideas into multimedia presentations. You will also learn how to use the application to create your own presentations both from scratch and with the help of one of the PowerPoint Wizards. Most people think of a slide show as a way of presenting a series of still images or photographs using a slide projector. If you think about it, however, a slide does not have to be a still image; using PowerPoint it can also be an audio or video clip. For that matter, a slide does not have to be even a picture; it can also be text, an outline of ideas, whatever you want. PowerPoint provides an easy-to-use multimedia presentation production system, which you will no doubt enjoy learning and which you and your students will find useful for individual or group projects of all kinds. In the various courses that you take as an Education major you learn how to design curricula, with lesson plans and unit plans. You also learn methodologies for effective teaching. The better the teacher you are, the more PowerPoint will empower you in your work. Here, then, are the topics that will be covered in this lesson:
