Homework 2: Course Basics

Assigned: Tuesday, January 24, 2006 Due: 8:00 a.m., Wednesday, January 25, 2006

As you might have been able to tell from the first few days of class, I have a wide variety of opinions about learning and teaching in CS which are reflected in how I run the class. You can (and should) learn more about these perspectives from the course Web. In this assignment, you will review the course Web and answer some basic questions.

1. Read

2. Email me answers to the following questions. Please include the answers directly in the message, and not as an attachment.

a. Suppose you get everything correct on a homework assignment. What grade should you expect to receive on that assignment?

b. What happens if you turn in homework late?

c. Where do the links labeled Misc at the top of each page seem to go?

d. Summarize the organization of a class outline.

e. Explain what an eboard is and list a few ways one can get the eboard for a particular class.

f. How can you figure out what assignments you have due?

g. When can you work with other students and when can you not work with other students (for this class)?

h. On days in which we have a lab, how can you get to the lab for that day? (Note that labs will come from Espresso and The TAO of Java.)

i. What should you do when you don't understand something in the class?

j. Why do you think I gave you this assignment?

k. What questions about the class do you have that aren't answered by the Web site?

Disclaimer: I usually create these pages on the fly, which means that I rarely proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details. It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
