AP United States History – Primary Sources on the Boston Massacre

Really excellent compilation of primary sources on the infamous Boston Massacre. Noteworthy among the sources are the “anonymous account” and the account of Captain Preston, the officer in charge of the soldiers who fired on the crowd.

John Adams’ defense of the soldiers is also an interesting perspective. You should notice that these accounts vary wildly from each other and you should ask yourself why these eyewitness accounts are so different from each other. Is it just an issue of people seeing things differently during a chaotic situation?

The trial summary should be useful if you have any trouble with the primary sources. Any additional difficulties should be raised in class.

AP United States History (Sept. 25-28)

We will be spending this week on the various causes leading up to the American Revolution. Depending on how efficiently we move through this material, students should be expecting to have an assessment either this Thursday or next Monday.

Dress rehearsal questions with a rubric will be covered the class day prior to the exam.

As always, I am available for extra academic support during lunch periods Tuesdays and Fridays, every day during seventh period, and after school by appointment Mondays through Thursdays.

2.2 Text Compression Enrichment

Extended Learning

Real World: Zip Compression

  • Experiment with zip using text files with different contents. Are the results for small files as good as for large files? (On Macs, in the Finder choose “get info” for a file to see the actual number of bytes in the file, since the Finder display will show 4KB for any file that’s less than that.)
    • Warning: results may vary. Zip works really well for text, but it might not compress other files very well because they are already compressed or don’t have the same kinds of embedded patterns that text documents do.

Challenge: Research the LZW algorithm

  • .zip compression is based on the LZW Compression Scheme
  • While the idea behind the text compression tool is similar to LZW (zip) algorithm, tracing the path of compression and decompression is somewhat challenging. Learning more about LZW and what happens in the course of this algorithm would be an excellent extension project for some individuals.
