Dear Prof Scott

Will it be useful to have both

uppercase and lowercase vowels and consonants in Scrabble word power game?

There will be at least one uppercase and one lowercase tile character out of seven in selecting tile.

Correct examples - Fish,Plant,Mirror,Tax,Bill

Incorrect examples -

FISH,PLANT,MIRROR,TAX,BILL

Will the Scrabble word power game become difficult as well as a longer version by these implementation?

Thanks

Prashant

I don't think it would be useful to have lower case letters.

If, for example, the word, 'FISH' was played, then off the 'S' the word 'SUMMER' could be played.

If lower-case letters were allowed, the S in FISH should be lower-case, but the S in SUMMER should be upper case ... I guess that means only the start of words could join, but after a horizontal word and a vertical word, the game would be through.

Also, the game of scrabble does not allow any proper nouns, names, or abbreviations, so capital letters aren't important. It needs to stick to words found in a dictionary, or people could almost play anything.

I can answer any question in general math, arithetic, discret math, algebra, box problems, geometry, filling a tank with water, trigonometry, pre-calculus, linear algebra, complex mathematics, probability, statistics, and most of anything else that relates to math. I can also say that I broke 5 minutes for a mile, which is over 12 mph, but is that relevant?

Experience in the area; I have tutored people in the above areas of mathematics for over two years in AllExperts.com. I have tutored people here and there in mathematics since before I received a BS degree back in 1984. In just two more years, I received an MS degree as well, but more on that later.
I tutored at OSU in the math center for all six years I was there. Most students offering assistance were juniors, seniors, or graduate students. I was allowed to tutor as a freshman.
I tutored at Mathnasium for well over a year.
I worked at The Boeing Company for over 5 years.
I received an MS degreee in Mathematics from Oregon State Univeristy.
The classes I took were over 100 hours of upper division credits in mathematical courses such as
calculus, statistics, probabilty, linear algrebra, powers, linear regression, matrices, and more.
I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degrees.
Past/Present Clients: College Students at Oregon State University, various math people since college,
over 7,500 people on the PC from the US and rest the world.
**Publications**

My master's paper was published in the OSU journal.
The subject of it was Numerical Analysis used in shock waves and rarefaction fans.
It dealt with discontinuities that arose over time.
They were solved using the Leap Frog method.
That method was used and improvements of it were shown.
The improvements were by Enquist-Osher, Godunov, and Lax-Wendroff.
**Education/Credentials**

Master of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematics.
Bachelor of Science at OSU with high honors in mathematical sciences.
This degree involved mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
I also took sophmore level physics and chemistry while I was attending college.
On the side I took raquetball, but that's still not relevant.
**Awards and Honors**

I earned high honors in both my BS degree and MS degree from Oregon State.
I was in near the top in most of my classes. In several classes in mathematics, I was first.
In a class of over 100 students, I was always one of the first ones to complete the test.
I graduated with well over 50 credits in upper division mathematics.
**Past/Present Clients**

My clients have been students at OSU, people who live nearby, friends with math questions,
and several people every day on the PC. I would guess that you are probably going to be one more.
