Next week is Spring Break! Don’t come to class because we are not having it! You can spend the time catching up on things you had issues with. Don’t forget to email me if you have questions on the material.
This week we spent some more time on the program that we worked on last time. We are a little behind, so don’t worry about the assignment that is due on the syllabus. I think we are going to go over it in stages starting next week.
If you have not finished last week’s homework, do so this week. If you only got part-way, see if you can go further. If you have everything working, try to trace through the program, and list out every variable (in every scope!) to make sure that you know what is happening. See what happens every time it goes through the loop, and make sure you understand how the scoping mechanisms keep the different positions of the different things on the screen from bumping into each other.
If you did not do the homework for the previous week, focus on that this week. There is a new chapter to read, but I am still going to add updates to the same chapter for next week. Don’t do the problems yet, as they will probably change, and I am going to be a little more specific on some of the math. Nonetheless, you should read it for our next class together.
I will add questions to the chapter you all read last week this weekend. So check back in next week for the problems.
