Assigned: Tuesday, 3 September 2002
Due: 9:00 a.m., Wednesday, 11 September 2002
Summary: In this assignment, you will build a small Web site dedicated to some aspect of introductory computer science.
Purposes: To give you more experience in writing
useful HTML. To give you incentive to explore more deeply some
aspect of the course or of computer science.
Collaboration: You should works in groups of two or three. You may not work alone. You may not work in groups of four. You may discuss your site and the assignment with anyone you wish. You may obtain help from anyone you wish, but you should clearly document that help (perhaps with an extra citations page).
Create a Web site (a collection of your own pages) with at least six pages (including a Home Page or Front Door for the site but not including the citations/acknowledgements pages for the site) dedicated to some topic relating to introductory computer science. I realize that you don't know much about introductory CS right now, but this is a chance for you to explore a little bit.
You can explore almost any aspect of the course we've started to cover or that you think will be interesting. For example, you might create a site that
As part of this assignment, you should consider how putting your information in a Web site is different than putting your information in a paper. How do you structure information differently? Similarly? (I suppose you could even dedicate your site to that issue.)
All of your pages should be correct HTML (which you can check at
All of your writing should be grammatically correct.
All of your pages should be generally accessible, which you can check by trying to access them from someone else's account in MathLAN and also somewhere else on campus.
Any ideas you take from elsewhere should be properly cited. Any help you receive from someone else should be properly cited. (A link to the appropriate place on a citations or acknowledgements page is one nice way to do such citations.)
Email me the URL of your
site's Front Door. Each group of two or three
should send me one URL. It is likely that I will include links to your
site somewhere in the course web, so it will be accessible
everywhere. (We can also see how long it takes to get indexed
by search engines. :-)

I usually create these pages
on the fly, which means that I rarely
proofread them and they may contain bad grammar and incorrect details.
It also means that I tend to update them regularly (see the history for
more details). Feel free to contact me with any suggestions for changes.
