Purpose
To provide practice using the design recipe to design and write functions, including functions that use functions you have written earlier, and functions involving acond/conditional branching expression (including functions involving intervals and enumerations).
Important notes
? Please note that only SOME, not all, of this homework’s functions contain a cond expression.
? NOTE: it is usually fine and often encouraged if you would like to write one or more helper functions to help you write a homework problem’s required functions.
? HOWEVER — whenever you do so, EACH function you define SHOULD follow all of the design recipe steps: first write its signature, then its purpose statement, then its function header, then its tests/check- expressions, then replace its … body with an appropriate expression)
? Remember: Signatures and purpose statements are ONLY required for function definitions — you do NOT write them for named constants or for non-function-definition compound expressions.
? You are expected to follow the Design Recipe for all functions that you design/define. So, each function is expected to include:
? a signature comment, including a nicely-descriptive name of the function, the types of expressions it expects, and the type of expression it produces. This should be written as discussed in class (and you can find examples in the posted in-class examples). For example,
; signature: rect-area: number number -> number
? a purpose statement comment, describing what the function expects and describing what it returns. For example,
; purpose: expects the length and width of a rectangle,
; and returns the area of that rectangle

? [following the design recipe, you will be writing the function header next; note that you don’t need to write it twice. Follow the function header with a body of …at this stage, and replace that … with its body later, at the appropriate step in the design recipe.]
? check-expect (or check-within, or other check- operation) expressions expressing the specific examples that you write BEFORE writing your function body. (These may be placed before or after your actual function, but you are expected to create these BEFORE writing the function body. I’ll have no way of knowing if you really write these in the correct order, but note that I won’t answer questions about your function body without seeing your examples written as check- expressions first…) For example,
(check-expect (rect-area 3 4)
12)
(check-expect (rect-area 10 5)
50)

? How many check- expressions should you have? Remember, the basic rules of thumb are:
* you need a test/check- expression for each “case” or category of data that may occur, AS WELL AS one for each “boundary” if intervals are involved, and you can always add more if you’d like!
* if there is only one category of data, you should have at least two tests/check- expressions, for more-robust error-checking of your function.
? [and, of course, your function definition itself!]
? You may include as many additional calls or tests of your function as you would like after its definition.
? You should use blank lines to separate your answers for the different parts of the homework problems. If you would like to add comments noting which part each answer is for, that is fine, too!
? Because the design recipe is so important, you will receive significant credit for the signature, purpose, header, and tests/check-expects portions of your functions. Typically you’ll get at least half-credit for a correct signature, purpose, header, and examples/check-expects, even if your function body is not correct (and, you’ll typically lose at least half-credit if you omit these or do them poorly, even if your function body is correct).

Problem 1
Start up DrRacket, (if necessary) setting the language to How To Design Programs – Beginning Student level, and adding the HTDP/2e versions of the image and universe teachpacks by putting these lines at the beginning of your Definitions window:
(require 2htdp/image)
(require 2htdp/universe)
Put a blank line, and then type in:
? a comment-line containing your name,
? followed by a comment-line containing CS 111 – HW 4,
? followed by a comment-line giving the date you last modified this homework,
? followed by a comment-line with no other text in it — for example:
; type in YOUR name
; CS 111 – HW 4
; last modified: 2016-02-15

A store gives discounts to frequent shoppers based on their past level of purchases; they are either “silver” level, “gold” level, or “platinum” level. Silver level frequent shoppers receive a 15% discount, gold level frequent shoppers receive a 20% discount, and platinum level frequent shoppers receive a 30% discount. All other shoppers receive no discount.
1 part a
Define appropriate, descriptive named constants for the values of the silver level frequent shoppers’ discount, the gold level frequent shoppers’ discount, and the platinum level frequent shoppers’ discount. (Hint: the values of these named constants should be of type number!)
1 part b
Using the design recipe, and remembering that the function string=? can be used to compare two strings for equality, design a function get-discount that expects a string representing the level of frequent shopper and produces the appropriate discount for that level written as a decimal fraction. (It should produce a discount of 0 if the string is not one of those noted above.) Make sure you appropriately use your named constants from Problem 1 part a! For this function, you need at least 4 well-chosen, appropriate specific tests/check-expects.

One important theme in this course is writing functions that work together to solve a problem.
Consider your function get-discount from Problem 1. You can use this function in another function to make its task easier.
Using the design recipe, design a function discounted-total that expects the total of a purchase before discount and a string representing the level of frequent shopper, and produces the appropriate discounted total for that purchase. For full credit, your solution must appropriately use get-discount.
(Hint: you should NOT need a cond expression inside the discounted-total function, thanks to
get-discount.)

Assume that a client wants a function that will recommend what outerwear to wear on a given day given the predicted high temperature in Fahrenheit degrees, based on the following:
<= 32 - "heavy parka"
(32, 45) – “coat”
[45, 60) – “light jacket”
>= 60 – “no outerwear needed”
Using the design recipe, design a function what-outerwear that expects the predicted high temperature in Fahrenheit, and returns the recommended outerwear for that day. For full credit, make sure that you include at least the minimum required tests for this data (hint: including boundary cases!).

Conditionals (and Pizza Economics)
This problem considers an important consequence of increased pizza consumption ?-the need for additional exercise.
Using the design recipe, develop a function workout that determines the number of hours of exercise required to counter the excess fat from eating pizza. workoutexpects a number that represents daily pizza consumption, in slices, and produces a number, in hours, that represents the amount of exercise time that you need.
For a daily intake of : You need to work out for :
0 slices 1/2 hour
1 to 4 slices 1 hour
>4 slices 1 hour + (1/2 hour per slice above 4)
For this function, you need at least 5 well-chosen, appropriate specific tests/check-expects.

The remaining problems were adapted from a problem suggested by James Logan Mayfield on the plt-edu mailing list.
Consider a virtual pet universe in which the universe’s type is number: in this case, the number representing the universe represents that pet’s happiness.
Find or build ONE OR MORE images to represent your virtual pet (you can create them from image operations, or paste them in, your choice). Define a named constant for each of these virtual pet’s image(s).
(You can have just a single pet image, or you could have several pet images, representing more happy or less happy versions of your pet…)
How can you show your pet’s current happiness? You could convert the current number representing the world into a string, and then use the text operation to convert that string into an image of that text using a desired font size and color. Then you could use above to combine that text image and your desired pet image into a single image, representing your pet and its current happiness.
Now — using the design recipe, design a draw-pet-scene function that expects a universe number, here representing your pet’s current happiness, and produces a scene containing (the appropriate version of) your pet’s image and a text image showing the value of your pet’s current happiness.
(For this function, note that it is up to you whether you need a cond expression or not — if you have a single image for your pet, you likely will not, but if you have more than one image, you likely will.)

This little helper-function does not need a cond expression.
You know that big-bang needs a function name to give to its on-tick clause, to determine how the universe should change at each ticker tick. For our virtual pet’s universe, its happiness should decrease with each ticker tick — you get to choose how much (any value MORE THAN 1). Then, using the design recipe, design a function decr-happiness that expects a universe number, which stands for your pet’s current happiness, and produces the new decreased happiness that should result at the next ticker tick.
Problem 7
Next, in your definitions window, type the comment lines:

; Problem 7
;
What can make your virtual pet happy, then?
Feeding it makes it happy! Say that typing the key f — represented as the string “f” — should increase its happiness by 10.
Petting it makes it happy, too — say that typing the key p — represented as the string “p” — should increase its happiness by 5.
But teasing it makes it less happy — say the typing the key t — represented as the string “t” — should decrease its happiness by 3.
(IF you would like, you may ADD additional keys that affect your pet’s happiness.)
Typing any other key should result in the pet’s happiness staying the same (not changing).
Using the design recipe, design a function interact-w-pet that expects the pet’s current happiness and a string (representing a keystroke), and produces the resulting new value of the pet’s happiness that should result from that keystroke.
Then write a big-bang expression consisting of an initial pet happiness value, a to-draw clause with with draw-pet-scene, an on-tick clause with decr-happiness, and anon-key clause with interact-w-pet — something like:
(big-bang initial-pet-happiness-number-you-choose
(to-draw draw-pet-scene)
(on-tick decr-happiness 1)
(on-key interact-w-pet))
(Note that the on-tick clause above is being asked to call decr-happiness about once per second.)
Now you should see your pet’s happiness decreasing as this runs, and that typing keys causes its happiness to increase or decrease or not change, depending on what you type — when you have checked out that this works, then you are done with this problem.
