Introduction to Computer Science: Week 15


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


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.


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.
