CS 1110: Introduction to Computing Using Python

Fall 2017

Exams

There are two prelims and a final in this course. Because of the size of this class, and having to coordinate multiple sections, the exam times have already been scheduled way in advance. Please make sure that you have nothing else planned at these times; there are no alternative times for these exams.

With that said, we will have a policy for legitimate conflicts. Two weeks before each exam, you should upload your conflict information into CMS. You should use the provided make-up petition template to submit your information. If an emergency comes up in less than two weeks of the exam, you need to contact the instructors, head TA (if any), and course administrative assistant as soon as possible. In addition, you should still submit your information to CMS so that we can keep track of it (CMS will count it as "late").

    Exam Archive

    To give you some idea of what the exams might be like, we are freely posting all of the exams from earlier semesters for you to look at how. However, please be aware of the following:

    The material covered changes every semester in CS 1110. Furthermore, material is not always covered in the same order. The topics on these older exams may not be the topics in our exams.

    In particular, the material between the Fall and Spring semesters can be quite different.
