Programming via the Web -- Spring 2012


05/04/12   We will have one last quiz on Monday 5/7.

05/04/12   The final exam is on Saturday 5/12 from 4:00PM to 6:00PM in room BRB 1101. Please arrive several minutes early. If you are registered with DSS and need to take the exam in the Shoemaker building, be sure to get the paperwork to me no later than 3:00PM on Wednesday 5/9.

04/30/12   Policy on late research papers: I will accept late research papers up to 48 hours after the deadline (even though I mistakenly said 24 hours in class). Late papers will be penalized 20%. You can hand the paper in at the beginning of class on Friday and it will be accepted, but no papers will be accepted after that!

04/30/12   Project #5 deadline: Because several locations on campus were without internet service last night, we will accept projects up to 24 hours past the due date with no penalty. We will not accept any projects more than 24 hours past the original due date.

04/17/12   Students in the 1:00 lecture: I made an error going over problem #5 from the worksheet. The code I wrote for copying the elements actually copied ALL of the elements instead of just the smaller ones. I forgot to write an if-statement that would check whether or not each element was smaller than the cutoff. Sorry for the mistake!

04/11/12   Regarding Project #5: Some students reported having difficulty watching the demonstration video with the Quicktime plugin. It should work properly now, so please try again.

04/10/12   Project #5 has been posted! This will be the last coding project for the semester.

04/09/12   There will be a quiz on Friday, April 13th.

04/03/12   Here are some practice problems related to arrays. These exercises are not being collected or graded, but please try them. If you get stuck, please drop by to see me or one of the TAs for some help! You will see something like this on the second midterm.
