Wumpus World

Wumpus World

Giorgio Ingargiola, Associate Profession of Computer and Information Science at Temple University, has created the Wumpus World as an example of knowledge representation, reasoning, and planning to "introduce the Situation Calculus, the Frame Problem, and a variety of axioms." The axioms presented include Effect Axioms, Frame Axioms, and Successor-State Axioms. The lesson is followed by four questions which ask students to reflect and evaluate what they have just learned. This site is an excellent resource for calculus educators, and for students looking to further their calculus skills.
