Sunday night - Prepping the old Hogwarts School of Python Programming lesson for tomorrow.😩

What do squares of numbers of the form 11...1 look like? 

@hartree had to go straight to calculator to test this! Maths is amazing! I'm going to show my y9 daughter this as she says she doesn't enjoy maths.

@wmvanstone @bitbybot Indeed it is often inadequate, but we have little choice at the moment. We are in the North York moors, and have a poor connection. I looked at Star Link, but that is way over my meagre budget. We play compromise far more than I would like.🙄

Can hardly believe this is a real news article on the main page of the BBC news website

@bitbybot Thanks for the tip. Actually, Replit was my first choice. It does everything I want it to do and is a great interface. Unfortunately our network couldn't handle it when I had the kids all logging in at the same time. We encountered the spinning wheel of boredom for a disruptive amount of minutes.

Thinking of signing up for the £3 band of Trinket, to teach year 8 and up coding. I miss Google colab. Is Trinket any good. I am in a Microsoft school and have limited network bandwidth (25 Mb/s shared for the whole school)

Any Computer science teaching areas that might be of interest?
