Enter The World Of Grammar 5
Learning grammar has been compared to other fun things, like having teeth pulled or being assigned detention. But it needn't be a painful experience with these five lessons that help teach grammar without the hammer! Included: Five fun activities.

Teaching the yearly grammar unit can be like giving a child cough medicine. Some students take it without flinching; others- those with a mental block about grammar- flinch at the mere mention of the word.
Freerice is an educational trivia game that helps you get smarter while making a difference for people around the world. Every question you answer correctly raises 10 grains of rice for the World Food Programme (WFP) to support its work saving and changing lives around the world.
Across the globe, up to 828 million people do not have enough food and 49 million people are facing emergency levels of hunger. From reducing our food waste to ensuring access to nutritious food for everyone, we have a lot of work to do. At WFP, we believe that food is a human right and that everyone deserves to live in a #ZeroHunger world. Let's work together to fill everyone's plate.

The new and improved features of Unreal Engine 5 enable you to build large, highly-detailed worlds that are brought to life with Mass AI and fully dynamic lighting. The city is designed and built using procedural generation using the Rules Processor.
The City Sample is a showcase for developing and designing worlds using World Partition and Data Layers. Unlike Unreal Engine 4, there are no sub-Levels that would traditionally be used to load in objects. Instead, World Partition loads them on-demand, and breaks up the scene into separate, editable parts.
Nanite's internal mesh format and rendering technology means that its representation changes dynamically as you move through the world, updating the level of detail on the fly and culling parts that aren't rendered on screen. Objects closer to the player camera receive more detail, while further objects receive less, all the while keeping on screen detail uniform.
The City Sample is made up of billions of polygons from tens of thousands of objects placed throughout the world. Nanite makes it possible to use film-quality assets in real-time with little to no additional setup other than enabling Nanite on the Static Mesh. It's even possible to drop a high-polygon ZBrush sculpt directly in game.
The geometric detail and fidelity required for large, open worlds with thousands to millions of instances totaling billions of polygons have increased the demands of games developed for next-generation consoles and high-end PCs. That level of fidelity can mean that games can consume a significant amount of their performance budgets before including rendering a frame at native 4K resolution.
Temporal Super Resolution (TSR) is an anti-aliasing method built to meet the fidelity demands of large, densely populated worlds. It uses a platform-agnostic temporal upscaling algorithm by taking a lower input resolution and outputting rendered frames at quality near 4K resolution. This means that you can increase performance without rendering native 4K but still achieve quality that rivals 4K from rendered lowerer resolutions.
Virtual Shadow Maps (VSM) is Unreal Engine 5's new shadow mapping method used to deliver consistent, high-resolution shadowing that works with film-quality assets and large, dynamically lit open worlds that use Nanite, Lumen, and World Partition features.
When Epic games developed The Matrix Awakens, it was known that the project would be an open world city that would need to be fully detailed and very large. This project is using many new features of Unreal Engine 5 and at the time of its development, it was known that many other departments would be creating content and they would need to be able to simultaneously work together. The relatively small size of the environment team and the amount of detail being targeted for the project meant two things: Nanite would remove typical polygon budget limits, and modular assets would be needed that could be instanced thousands of times across the world.
The generated city data contains all sorts of metadata that can be used by other tools in the Unreal Engine 5, including the Artificial Intelligence system that drives the traffic and crowd simulations. Buildings are constructed from a volume. The building generator uses a shape grammar language to style the building volume. Each different building style has a different set of rules. A given volume can also be split into two different styles: one for the bottom of the building and one for the remaining top section.
In order to build the city and support all the procedurally generated instances that make up the world, Nanite needed to be used as much as possible. It meant that a mega mesh could be built and needed to use instances to do so. Each building in the city is made up of hundreds of instances, and all props on the street, such as furniture, decals, and even trash are using Nanite. Very little custom geometry is used in the city, which ensures that the project's memory usage stays within the set budget.
The Entire world in City Sample uses the One File Per Actor (OFPA) system. It writes a separate file for each unique instance of an Actor placed within the Level rather than writing its data into a single map file.
Developing games with large, open worlds in mind requires dividing the map into many smaller sections that can be loaded and unloaded as the map is traversed. Loading a multi-kilometer area all at once and having it populated with objects isn't always possible. Development tools in the past have required developers to manually divide their Levels into sublevels and carefully manage when they are streamed in and out. Viewing sections of the world in context with each other could often be difficult.
The World Partition system solves this problem and simplifies the process as it automatically divides objects in the level into cells based on their grid position. The cells manage the content within them and adjust accordingly as objects are added and removed so that you never need to manually manage assets. During gameplay, World Partition automatically loads and unloads cells as you move through the world.
The City Sample makes use of Data Layers by organizing them into different sets of objects found in the world, such as procedural ones, rooftop props, freeway, and so on. The Data Layers Outliner contains a list of all layers that contain objects found in the scene. From there, you can add, remove, or set visibility of objects using these layers.
The Artificial Intelligence features of Unreal Engine 5 bring the city and world around it to life. Many of these features are new to the engine and are considered experimental at this time. You can dive into the City Sample and explore how they work for this project.
The Mass Spawner is an entry point to bring Mass Entities into the world. The Mass Spawner dictates two things: what type of entity is spawned and where it is spawned. The City Sample uses multiple spawners, one each for crowds, intersections, traffic, and parked vehicles.
When you select one of the Mass Spawner Actors placed in the level, the Details panel contains information about how the entities are used. The Entity Type (1) specifies what type of entity is being spawned and the Spawn Data Generators (2) specifies where it will be spawned in the world.
The Mass Spawner supports many distribution possibilities for entities in the world. The example below is a visualization of the Traffic and Crowd Systems spawned throughout the world. Green represents driving vehicles, Blue are parked vehicles, and White are crowds.
The Zone Shape component can be added to the world from the Place Actors panel. See the Big City level's World Outliner and look for the Zone Shapes folder to see how these are being used.
Each vehicle Blueprint contains a Vehicle Movement Component that defines the physical and mechanical properties of the vehicle, including its engine torque, transmissions, gearing, mass, and center of mass. The Vehicle Movement Component also has an array of data-only Wheel Blueprints for the front and rear wheels. Wheel Blueprints control many of the vehicle's handling and braking properties with settings for tire friction, suspension, braking torque and more.
In addition to all the tools that give you freedom in visuals, game mechanics, and building open worlds, Unreal Engine 5 also allows greater control over your game's audio with MetaSounds.
The World Audio Data System is an experimental suite of tools and features centered around working with procedural data propagation and design. It includes a custom <s
