CSC 202: Week 12


Our goal this week will be to begin an indepth study of recursion. At the same time we will be introduced to yet another programming language, Lisp. I found a PDF of good book we could use for this, Paul Graham's ANSI Common Lisp. Another valuable resource is available on the GMU website, Lisp Quickstart.

Saturday, April 4th

Classwork / Homework

We will start with a brief introduction to Common Lisp using Lisp for CSC 202 Students Part 1. The rest of the session will be a hands-on workshop getting practice working with Common Lisp.

Before next class, read Chapter 2: Welcome to Lisp and complete the first 4 exercises at the end of the chapter. When we meet next we will present solutions to these exercises.

Tuesday, March 31st

Classwork / Homework

We will begin by checking in on how far we got with the queue assignment from last class.

Afterwards, I'll talk about the next chapter of our text and discuss why I would like you to learn a little Lisp.


Let's keep doing what we've been doing, since if it ain't broke, don't fix it! ;-)
