This specialization was considerated appropriate for the material that school offered. In 1980 the ITIS Marconi was moved in the present headquarter, in Guardini squere. Two years ago the institute celebrated the 30 years jubileum of our institute. </li></ul>View of the istitute from piazzale Guardini
<ul><li>The first year of informatics course is concentrated on studying Java language and programming in BlueJ. </li></ul><ul><li>We have two kinds of lessons and two tachers: Benedetti Maurizio, the teoric teacher. He teachs us everything about informatics. Bileddo Antonino is our technical teacher. He teachs us how to use personal computer, how to apply teoric knowledges on it. </li></ul><ul><li>We’d like to propose you a short tutorial about some things we do in informatics. </li></ul>INFORMATICS Click here for the Tutorial about Java BlueJ.
<ul><li>In electronics we have two kinds of lessons and two tachers: Garonzi Roberta, the teoric teacher. She teachs us the teoric part of electronics. Cacopardo is our technical teacher. He teachs us how to use electronics components, how to make circuits… </li></ul><ul><li>We use to get lot of fun in electronics. </li></ul><ul><li>You can descover how, clicking the tutorial. </li></ul>ELECTRONICS Click here for the Tutorial about Diode.

ITALIAN & HISTORY During the lessons of italian and history all the topics are introduced by a multimedia presentation which every student has got on his own CD too. In this way it’s easier for us to understand new topics. The following pages are examples of multimedia lessons made by us…
Humanism The XV° century has seen the developing of a new cultural current: the Humanism. That current marks the exit in cultural field from Middle Ages and the beginning of the Renaissance where the human will be the point of reference of all reality. At the beginning it was born as intellectual movement, manifested mainly in Italy. The Humanism began by the search activity , copying a study of ancient texts turning by Francesco Petrarca that in his way, tried to give new voice to the antique Latin world, he tried to translate the Iliad of Omero, too. The few classical texts, that were popular, were interpreted as advance allegorical of the Christian truths. The rediscover of the ancient texts redefined the cultural and linguistics identity of the ancient world Latin and Greek. Leonardo’s drawing, rappresenting the Humanism period
The Autumn of Middle Age The "Autumn of Middle Age" in origin was the title that Johan Huizinga gave to the famous work that he made in 1919. With the name "Autumn" is meant to emphasize the continuity of medieval civilization during the XIV and the XV century, but also a sense of its purpose. Nourished by homesickness for the world that is disappearing, but also to feelings of insecurity, the man tries to escape to find refuge in melancholy abode of dreams as opposed to the explosion of joyful life that proclaims the Renaissance. The attitude to religion ranges from indifference, skepticism and derision. Drawing that shows death, very close to the Middle Age’s everyday life.
RELIGION <ul><li>Exorcism stands for a group of practices and rites made to banish a presumed demonic or malefic presence from a person, animal or place. These are very old practices and they are a part of many religions. </li></ul><ul><li>That a supernatural being can take possess of a body is a frequent belief in many religions, in particular in the shamanistic belief, the person prepared for exorcisms (exorcist) is often a priest or a person invested with particular powers. The exorcist often uses prayers, symbols, amulets, invoking a positive supernatural power. The possessed aren’t considered evil or responsible for their actions. </li></ul>Religion is a facoltative subject. You can choose not to do it but doing it you learn a lot of interesting things just look at something about the exorcism.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION <ul><li>During P.E. lessons we often go out, when the weather is fine. If it’s bad we stay indoor and play different kinds of sports like vollleyball, basketball, soccer, footing, running… </li></ul><ul><li>It’s a very nice lesson because it’s different from the other subjects we learn. It’s like a pause: we can have fun, sometimes working hard. </li></ul>
SYSTEMS <ul><li>In the Systems Programming classes we study a lot of things about how computer works, how is it composed, how to upgrade it. </li></ul><ul><li>We also study old programming languages which help us to understand how to program. </li></ul>Click here for the Tutorial about CSS and HTML languages.
CALCULUS In mathematics, an average, or central tendency of a data set refers to a measure of the "middle" value of the data set. There are many different descriptive statistics that can be chosen as a measurement of the central tendency of the data items. An average is a single value that is meant to typify a list of values. If all the numbers in the list are the same, then this number should be used. If the numbers are not all the same, an easy way to get a representative value from a list is to randomly pick any number from the list. The most common method is the arithmetic mean. There are many other types of averages, such as median. The average is calculated by combining the measurements related to a set and to compute a number as being the average of the set. Name Equation or description Arithmetic mean Median The middle value that separates the higher half from the lower half of the data set Geometric median rotation invariant extension of the median for points in R n Mode The most frequent value in the data set Geometric mean Harmonic mean Quadratic mean Generalized mean Weighted mean Truncated mean The arithmetic mean of data values after a certain number or proportion of the highest and lowest data values have been discarded Interquartile mean A special case of the truncated mean, using the interquartile range Midrange Winsorized mean Similar to the truncated mean, but, rather than deleting the extreme values, they are set equal to the largest and smallest values that remain
