CS 1110: Introduction to Computing Using Python

Spring 2016

The Labs

Labs/Sections are held (just about) every week and there is always a Lab Exercise that you work on. They are designed to help you understand the ideas behind the current assignment (which is graded for correctness and other things). Thus, the act of working on a Lab Exercise is the act of working on the current assignment.

The Lab Exercises are not graded for correctness, but on completion and your ability to explain your reasoning to whoever is checking your lab off.

By recording your Lab Exercise completions over the semester we have a record of your commitment to learning CS 1110 content.

The "checking off" can be done during the lab itself if you finish; it involves us swiping your Cornell ID card, so please bring it each time. If you need more time and/or help, then the Lab Exercise can be checked off by any CS 1110 consultant up to the close of consulting hours on the following Monday (typically 9:30pm). No exceptions and no checking off at the "next" lab.

You should try to finish the Lab Exercises before the Lab. This will leave time for essential questions and to work on the current assignment.

Problems labeled as "optional" in a Lab Exercise are not required for check-off. However, they are part of the course syllabus and should always be attempted.
