CSC 202: Week 1


Overview

Happy New Year! This week we begin our study of the C programming language.

Thursday, January 9th

Classwork

We will start class with either a rich discussion of the homework reading assignment or a quiz, depending on how prepared you are with discussion questions. After that we will spend the rest of class and homework time on Chapter 1: A Tutorial Introduction.

Homework

Complete all examples and exercises from Chapter 1: A Tutorial Introduction in The C Programming Language through the end of section 1.6 Arrays. Add these to your new csc202 git repository on gitlab.

Evaluation

To earn an 'A' for this assignment, you must have a csc202 git repository on gitlab with the required C programs in it. I would recomment a subdirectory named C with perhaps a subdirectory of this named ch1 to help you organize your work.

Tuesday, January 7th

Classwork

Homework

Read the Preface, the Preface to the First Edition, and the Introduction from The C Programming Language, and The Rise of Worse Is Better from The UNIX-HATERS Handbook. Take good notes. If you come to class Thursday with thoughtful, detailed questions from the readings, we won't have a quiz. If you don't, we will.

Evaluation

Your evaluation will be based either on the class discussion or the quiz, depending on how well prepared you are for class discussion.
