• This week’s missions: Delivery Drone and Hexagonal Islands


Hi, {{user.username}}

We believe that it’s highly important to be able to recognize the issues of current education and to know what you really need to learn to achieve your goals and how to do it more efficiently in the long run. So in this week’s article “Minimalistic Approach To Education” we’re talking about the problems that education is facing in terms of information overload and how minimalism can be applied to studying and make it more effective, useful and resultative.

Test yourself and have fun with the new missions we have for you:

The first mission is “Delivery Drone” created by kurosawa4434 where you have to plan the efficient drone movement.

delivery_drone([0, 2, 0]) == 4
delivery_drone([0, 0, 1, 2]) == 6

The second one is also created by kurosawa4434 and is called “Hexagonal Islands”. Here your task is to find the size of all islands represented on the hexagonal grid.

sorted(hexagonal_islands({'C5','E5','F4','F5','H4','H5','I4','I6','J4','J5'})) == [1, 3, 7]
sorted(hexagonal_islands({'A1','A2','A3','A4','B1','B4','C2','C5','D2', 'D3','D4','D5',
                           'H6','H7','H8','I6','I9','J5','J9','K6','K9','L6','L7','L8'}) == [16, 19]
