  2. Announcements: Canvas version (starts out compact); one-page version (all announcement bodies on one page, no login required); important initial overview announcement

  3. Frequently accessed servers and sites:
  4. Help, advice, and previous solutions
  5. Exam information, including archive of previous exams and solutions

  6. Info unlikely to change during the semester
    1. Instructions: Mechanics of online exams (for those who have permission to take one); installing/accessing Python and Atom (even in cases when you don't have a working computer); using a command shell; CMS; Student Center section swaps and grade-option changes; register an exam conflict, get a form signed, become a consultant
    2. Policies: assessment/grading, collaboration and academic integrity, SDS accommodations, exams: modalities, conflicts; no overlapping (time-conflicting) enrollment permitted.
    3. Alternative courses

CS 1110 - Introduction to Computing Using Python (MQR-AS, SMR-AS)
Fall, Spring, Summer. 4 credits. Fall, Summer: letter grades only; Spring: student option grading (no audit).

Programming and problem solving using Python. Emphasizes principles of software development, style, and testing. Topics include procedures and functions, iteration, recursion, arrays and vectors, strings, an operational model of procedure and function calls, algorithms, exceptions, object-oriented programming, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). Weekly labs provide guided practice on the computer, with staff present to help. [...]

Forbidden Overlap:
Students may not enroll in CS 1110 if they have taken or are also enrolled in CS 2110/ENGRD 2110, CS 2112, or have taken or are currently enrolled in a course offered or cross-listed with a CS number 3000 or above. (Students looking to learn Python rather than learn how to program should take CS 1133 instead.) Students who have affiliated with the computer-science major may not enroll.

Due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1110 and one of the following: CS 1112, CS 1115, INFO 1100, VISST 1100.

Prerequisites:  Assumes basic high school mathematics. No calculus or programming experience required.
