03/12/20 The course ELMS page is live! From this point on, I'll be posting course announcements there. We will also use the ELMS page for its discussion board, as a place for me to post lecture videos, and links to other resources. Please take a look!
03/12/20 Exam #1 scores have been published on Gradescope. The median score was 75/100. The window for regrade requests will not be open until after the TAs have had time to go over the exam solutions in class. (When classes resume on March 30th.)

02/28/20 Update about Project #4 for Mac users: Some students with Macs reported that they were unable to change the color of the ButtonSquares. I made two changes to the project files that I believe will correct this issue for all users. If you are experiencing this problem, please download the new project zip file from the class webpage and import it into Eclipse. (I made a small change to Driver.java and also a change to ButtonSquare.java).
02/25/20 Project #4 has been posted.

02/08/20 I have created some "Study Questions" for the first two weeks of the course. To see them, click the "Study Questions" tab in the menu at the top. (You may have to refresh this page on your browser.) I'll continue to add questions as we go, without posting further announcements about it.
01/31/20 10% of your grade on each project will be for "coding style". One of the TAs will look over your code carefully and deduct points for poor style. After the grading is over, you can view the TAs comments and explanations for point deductions by finding your submission on the submission server, and selecting the link that says "Code Review". I have created a Style Guide that explains what we consider to be "good style". You should read it over carefully before the first project is due.
01/31/20 Project #1 has been posted! (Go to the "Projects" tab to find a link to the project description, and a link for the "starting files" that you must import into Eclipse.)
