Programming Languages (CS302 2005S)

Homework 1: Course Basics

Due: Friday, January 28, 2005

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.

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. What work do you expect to have to do in advance of each class period? When should you do that work?

d. Summarize the organization of the 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. How can you obtain help from me?

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

j. 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.
