With our develop environment in place, this week we dive right in to learning C++. This is at least the 2nd, and for many of you 3rd or more, programming language, so we will keep a rigerous pace in the beginning, so that we have more time to get to the fun stuff.
Thursday, September 7th
Create a new subdirectory named
ch03 inside your
Exercises directory in your git repo. Complete the exercises at
the end of
Functions from our text.
The following rubric will be used for the week's evaluation:
- A: Working solutions to the 3 exercises in the chapter are present in the git repository. Regular commits both during class time and after show engage incremental progress toward solution development.
- B: Partially working solutions to the 3 exercises in the chapter are present in the git repository. At least one seperate commit is made for each exercise.
- C: Effort is evident toward making working solutions to the 3 exercises in the chapter are present in the git repository. At least one seperate commit is made for each exercise.
- D: One or more commits made during the assignment period.
- E: No evidence of work present.
This is due by 11:59 pm on Friday, September 8th.
Tuesday, September 5th
During class today we will discuss types, values, and variables
Create a directory in your
csc222 git repo named
Exercises. Then create a subdirectory of that named
Complete the two exercises at the end of
Variables and types in our text, and commit them to the
directory in your git repository.
You will earn credit for this assignment when your solutions to the exercises appear in your git repo.
It is due before class meets on Thursday.
Our goal is to foster a vibrant learning community, since the best way for all of us to learn is to learn from each other. In that spirit, I will frequently add a Shout Outs section where I will highlight particularly examples of work done in class.
This week's shout out goes to Luis, who sent me the best solution to the exercise at the end of chapter 1:
- Bad syntax & good semantics: ..hello!My?NaMe<is|Luis;
- Bad semantics & good syntax: The chair was shouting silently.
