Cluedo murder mystery riddle - adaptation from Einstein's '5 houses' logic puzzle

Cluedo murder mystery riddle - adaptation from Einstein's '5 houses' logic puzzle

**Mr Black has been found dead at Tudor Manor. ** You are the lead investigating detective. You have all six suspects brought to the main hall of the mansion, seated next to each other around a circular table. Every one of them has a motive to murder Mr Black, but only one committed the crime. Can you solve the case and bring the killer to justice? Who killed Mr Black? What weapon was used? Where was the weapon hidden? This activity is an adaptation of mine based off Einstein’s ‘five houses’ logic problem Students extract relevant information from text; create an appropriate data structure to record these facts; and use a process of elimination to solve the problem I have been using it with KS4/5 Computer Science classes to demonstrate computational thinking (abstraction and decomposition)

Here is a nice mini activity, to introduce CSS. The code allows to you create a gradient between two colours then animate them on a web page so the background colour activity shifts between the colours. You can have more than 2 colours just pay adding more #hexvalues and then adjusting the background position by an addition 200 for each # used. Attached Powerpoint guide - with notes/comments & has a troubleshooting bit at the back if theres a fault PDF - guide of the same Powerpoint Text file, which has the raw code for the HTML and CSS to directly copy and paste into what ever editor you use.

Intermediate Python Programming – Dungeon Escape

Intermediate Python Programming – Dungeon Escape

This is designed to be used after the Beginning Python Programming examples. The price covers the FREE resources also published. A more complex demonstration of how you can build a dungeon/map game. The game utilises a 2D Array to store a map so that directions can be correctly calculated depending on the player position. The progam also uses a global variable for the map, functions, integer floor division and modulus for time calculations. Development of the game could include: Changing the map, altering the size of the map (look out for limiting variables), adding a wandering monster, adding a new message for the starting square, increasing difficulty, adding a new scoring system and lots more that I’m sure you’ll think of. The explanation lines have been commented out so you can simply copy and paste the whole document into IDLE (or similar) and see it working, or print to use as a help guide.
