I’m an engineering teacher using thunkable as an alternative way to teach engineering mathematics. I used to use App Inventor 2 for this project but moved to thunkable recently because of the cross platform compatibility. Right now I have 2 issues:
Certain programming blocks appear broken, specifically the mean/standard deviation of a list. The function reads the list as a single string of numbers rather than individual data points (e.g. 12345 instead of 1,2,3,4,5). What’s odd is that about 10% of my students haven’t had this issue.
Even with basic math functions, I’m getting wildly different results. I can have 2 students with the same code but different phones (both iphone 7s with the same updates I believe) and the code will only function properly on one of them. The program is a simple mean calculation based on text entry data points (in which the keyboards are set to numeric entry only).
I wasn’t sure if these were just quirks of the platform because it’s so new or if there’s some nuanced part of thunkable I haven’t recognized yet. Not sure if anyone else has experienced these bugs. Please let me know!
