Daily Reading and Homework Assignments
There is a reading assignment to be done before class on each day.
Each day also has one or two homework problems. These are
intended to be easy if you have done the reading. Make sure
to write your name and the date on your homework.
Find another person in the class who can be your "homework buddy".
Once you have done the reading and the homework, you and your
homework buddy check each others' homework. If there's a problem,
explain it to each other until it's correct. Then sign your buddy's
homework (and vice versa), and hand it in for a completion grade.
- The homework is due during the lecture it prepares for.
There will be programming assignments due during the semester.
More information later.
- Probably four assignments.
