Quinn's Thesis, Tom Kooij and LaTeX

Update: Quinn has provided her Perl Code.

Tom Kooij just sent me a message about his continuing project on using UT. He has developed some code using LaTeX to simplify the creation of the 256x256 pixel bitmaps required by the EduFrag template.

This reminded me that I still had not uploaded Quinn Thomas' senior design thesis on comparing the use of the Educational version of UT vs. a standard web interface to deliver quizzes to high school students. She showed that there was not much of an advantage but her conditions did not allow for actual game play, such as the race format that we typically use.

The reason Tom's message reminded me of Quinn's work was that she used LaTeX as well to generate her physics bitmaps.
