Gradeable's mission is to help teachers get through their stacks of paper and get to what matters most - teaching. One of the Gradeable tools enables teachers to scan exams, grading sheets, and problem sets with their mobile devices. But when you have to scan 500 problem sets a week, this can be extremely time consuming. A creative solution to this challenge could improve the Gradeable app and impact the efficiency of thousands of teachers and improve education for millions of students.

Deliverables

If a simple iOS app existed that automatically takes photos with the primary camera, how would you maximize the number of photos taken in 12 seconds while suffering minimal loss in quality?

Please submit any pseudocode that helps explain why your solution is the optimal one.
