Hello CheckiO users! 🙂

💥 We all know this, but for those who doesn't, we'll emphasize that teaching is hard! Finding a way to explain ideas and concepts, finding an approach to each individual among your students, each having a unique mind and learning capabilities. Being patient and creative, friendly but respective, kind but fair. You have to understand complex stuff and be able to present them in the simplest of ways. There are so many things that you must balance and consider in your work. Teachers, you are heroes, the every-day heroes! With this heroic work comes a responsibility. A responsibility of keeping yourself accountable for your student’s education. Some teachers forget about that and stay oblivious to the mistakes they are making. We’ve compiled a list of 9 Reasons Why Students Don’t Want You as a Teacher. We sincerely hope that it will help you to self-reflect, better connect with your students and achieve better results during your lessons.

💪 Challenge yourself with our latest series of missions with light bulbs, which will be highly useful in understanding the concept of processes and evaluation of the processes’ performance:

The first one is called Lightbulb Intro where you have to determine how long the light bulb has been turned on depending on the the time during which a switch on/off button has been pressed.

sum_light([
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 0 , 0),
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 10 , 10),
]) == 610

sum_light([
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 0 , 0),
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 10 , 10),
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 11, 0 , 0),
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 11, 10 , 10),
]) == 1220

sum_light([
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 0 , 0),
    datetime(2015, 1, 12, 10, 0 , 1),
]) == 1

The second mission is Lightbulb Start Watching and here you have to find how long the room was lit, starting from a certain moment.

The third is the Lightbulb End Watching mission and here you also have to figure out how long the room was lit, but consider the time when it’s necessary to end the observation.

The fourth mission is called Multiple Lightbulbs where you still need to determine how long the room will be lit between start_watching and end_watching period, but now you have to consider more than one light bulb.
