    Programming Project

    Hey guys

    I need some ideas for a programming project for my Year 12 HSC project (im not asking you to make it for me just the ideas)

    - It can be any programming language
    - It is due Next year in August
    - It can be anything i like (so an App, Game, Tool, etc)

    That's all the details i have been given so far....

    Again im not asking you to make it for me im just asking for some ideas so i can get to work early and get a good mark

    Really appreciate some ideas...Thanks xD

    How well do you know maths / physics? There are a couple of cute modelling / simulation tasks you could do. Discrete maths is great fun and everyone seems to consider it something very advanced, same goes for models or simulations of calculus physics and the such

    Make a tool. Which is speed calculator for M/s and km/hr

    I think a tad bit more complexity might be required for such a project...

    Yer needs to be a bit more complexity then that xD

    I am not very good at maths or physics, could you give me a bit more detail in what you mean?

    This is a huge project I'm about to suggest.

    Go to 'Project Euler' (Google it), and register. Make a program in any language, that can give you the answer to every problem on that website by looking up the problem ID. You could also make 359 individual programs to create the answers to each of those questions. @nikolai13

    Well I'll use one of my own recent maths tasks as an example. Note that I had to do this from a mathematical point of view, but it could have just as easily been approached with programming. Say that you're given a certain building, e.g.


    You're supposed to create a model for it and calculate the optimal distribution of floors depending on various factors (e.g. base width, length, height etc.) and then take some of these as parameters - e.g. see how the optimal internal floor distribution / floor area etc. is affected with the height. Since this cannot really be done algebraically (at least if you're doing something a bit more complex), you could do it with some sort of algorithm. Hence you could make a program thwt would create something like a quasi-riemann sum thingy, but "properly" done (ie it goes from left to right, unlike mine which was limited to 1/2 of the building and had to be done on the inverse function):



    tl;dr: a suggestion for a program:

    1) client inputs function that would represent the shape of the roof
    2) client inputs minimum floor height (maybe wall width too, depends how complex you want to create this)
    3) program finds optimal placement of cuboids in the building (or, if you simplify this - the optimal placement of rectangles in the area between the function of the roof and the x-axis, which represents the floor)
    4) program calculates total living / office space inside the building (cuboids), total floor area, floor height(s), number of floors etc.
    5) program tells the client the data.

    hmm. I always wanted something like that
    "I wasn't born to be forced by people.
    I will breathe the way I do and I will live the way I choose."

    Sounds awesome, if you need any clarifications or anything just tell me, I've prolly still got a copy of that thing lying about somewhere.
