Measuring Information 1

The Measuring Information models are game-like models made to demonstrate the realationship between the information theory concepts, uncertainty and information as well as give some intuition as to why logarithms are used to calculate it. This model generates turtles of two different sizes, shapes, colors, and four other attributes. So there are 128 combinations of these attribute values, and therefore 128 different possible types of turtles. The goal is to find out the type of turtle the computer has selected by asking binary choice questions (those with only two possible answers). This may remind you of other guessing games you have played before.
