  2. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the project team and partners developed Cyberchase, a multimedia story-based series for students to practice and learn math. Researchers will develop and test a prototype of a mobile app-based fractions game to be integrated within the multimedia series. The prototype will adjust to students of different skill levels, and will present fractions in different repre ...

  3. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...

  5. Memristor-CMOS Analog Co-Processor for Efficient Computation of PDEs

    SBC: SPERO DEVICES, INC.            Topic: ST15C002

    Spero Devices is proposing design of a memristor-CMOS co-processor to implement analog Discrete Fourier Transforms (DFTs). The analog co-processor invokes spectral methods to solve a class of linear and non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) arising in the scientific simulation of complex systems. Current PDE solution methods are inefficient and often intractable due to limitations assoc ...

  7. Building Trustworthy Software Systems using Big Code

    SBC: American Software Safety Reliability Ltd.Co            Topic: SB161004

    On December 31, 2014, it was disclosed that the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter was unable to fire its guns due to a glitch in the software, delaying production of the aircraft until 2019. Current industry tools for ensuring software quality statically check the code for security and run-time vulnerabilities that are often the cause of failure in complex software systems. Unfortunately, these tools suff ...
