Hello, my name is Robert Stryde and I am a teacher at the Royal School for the Deaf Derby in the United Kingdom. In our mission to excel learning for these underprivileged students we have discovered the advantages of introducing computer programming into their lives. Computer programming opens a new pathway of communication between each individual student and their teachers, allowing classes to be more productive and more importantly fun. Recently the school has invested in Mathematica applications throughout the school and the positive response has been incredible. One of my on going goals is to introduce fun and diverse aspects to my teachings and currently I would like to show my classes that games can be created and played using Mathematica. Unfortunately most of the teachers here, like their students, have only just learned how to use Mathematica. Hence the reason I am writing this e-mail. I have stumbled on your site and am wondering if you could lend a helping hand. I am looking to get my hands on 4-5 ready made Mathematica programmed games. Nothing too complicated of course, so that I too could learn by example, but interesting enough to show the depth of Mathematica. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Even if it is just to point me in the right direction on where to seek help. Thank you so much for your time, and please e-mail me directly. Awaiting your response, Robert Stryde robertstryde at hotmail.com P.S. Please visit our Web Site at www.rsd-derby.org. I teach the further education program that unfortunately has not yet been added to the site.
