What were the learning obstacles faced and what strategies/ approaches were used to help resolve that? If they have not been resolved today, what then are the strategies you would try to solve them?

the question asked today for my reflection journal lol

learning obstacles faced, were many people trying to get their points to other team members at the same time.

strategies used to resolve is that we as a team, try to limit to one person voicing their view, otherwise, the discussion would turn out messy and would probably make no sense and cause confusion.

if they have not been resolved today, the approach i would use to solve the problem would be to appoint one of the team members to stop others, when one person is talking.

Thoughts experiments

we had to learn something about thoughts experiments...

anyways the quiz we had was below, what would you have answered lol


Imagine a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time. It will almost surely type a given text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare.

MY ANSWER: yes it can.

so the hypothesis is that randomness can result in some form of order, by hitting keys at random, a given text can be typed.

so instead of starting with the problem with a long text, we start with short words, for example a 3 letter word. with 26 possibility because of alphabets, we take 26^3=17576

meaning for a specific 3 letter word to be produced, when randomly pressing the keys, chances of it getting the 3 letter word that we want is 1 out of 17576.

we can use that to test in the experiment, by randomly pressing 3 keys then recording the results.

since this claim can be tested empirically, it means that it can be verified.
