Assignments 5 and 6

We have posted both assignment 5 and assignment 6. Assignment 5 is a short written assignment, shorter than Assignment 2. It is primarily intended as practice for the exam. Assignment 6 is a much longer assignment and is due after the exam. However, we ask that you complete some of it before the exam as a way to study. See the assignment instructions for more information.

Assignment 4

The next assignment covers the material that we covered near the first prelim. This assignment takes a little longer than the previous assignment, but not signficantly longer. In addition, you have two full weeks to work on it. With that said, you want to get started as soon as possible.

No Serial Number/Device ID on your iClicker?

The device number, needed to register the clicker, can be recovered by bringing your clicker to (a) the Academic Technology Center Room 123, Computing and Communications Center on the Ag Quad, open 9-5; (b) the ATC's G27 Stimson Hall office near Day Hall, open 12-5; or (c) Walker White's office hours.

Register your iClicker, Even if Used

To register your device, visit http://atcsupport.cit.cornell.edu/pollsrvc . You will login with your netID and password, and you will need the serial number, or device ID, of your clicker. The device id can be found on the back, perhaps near a "bar code". You may wish to put some invisible tape over the number or write it down somewhere, since the numbers can rub off.

Note that each individual student in CS1110 needs their own clicker. We will use the clickers in class for the first time on Thursday, August 27. It is important that you have a clicker and register it by that class.

Textbook is available online

The textbook that we are using, Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, is licensed under the Creative Commons. That means it is freely available online as either a PDF or an eBook. To get a copy, you should go to the author's webpage.

We realize that not everyone likes eBooks, and that some of you would still like to have a printed copy. For that reason, the campus store is selling a few copies of the print version should you want one.
