Introduction to Computer Science: Week 15


Overview

This week we will work on our end-of-year projects, as you described in final_projects_2021.pdf. I will be making a pitch to encourage some of you to join the gasp testing process.

Week of Monday, May 17th

Classwork/Homework

We will begin class by discussing the criteria for your final project, which should include each of the following:

  1. use of at several of Python's built-in data types, including strings, at least one numeric type, a list or tuple, and a dictionary.
  2. use of Python's branching statement if ... elif ... else, and looping statements, while and for.
  3. user defined funtions.
  4. at least one user defined class.

I will be making a pitch for volunteers to help test the work Richard is doing with the gasp library. This will provide a more structured activity and an opportunity to help test tools that will serve our ACC program in the future.

Evaluation

To earn an A for the week, there should be evidence of regular commits in your git repo over a sustained period of time showing progress in the development of your project.
