Friday PSA (also applies to Block Party and Last Chance Not Harris).
I've had some students ask whether they could work on the CSC 161
material over the summer so that they could take CSC 207 in the fall
or spring. In fairness, I'm presenting the options to everyone.
We do have an old, robot-free version of CSC 161 that students have
attempted on their own (with some feedback from a faculty member)
About 1/2 the students who attempt the robot-free CSC 161 finish
at a level that permits them to go on to CSC 207, but it's usually
only the strongest students who try.
This summer, I'm going to try a variation. Students will do
the EdX Harvard CS50 Course, which includes not only 161 material
but also some Web development. Students will also do the last
four weeks or so of CSC 161 (I'm working on the details).
If you choose to do this soon and are a rising 3rd year or senior,
you may be able to get 2 credits through the new Guided Learning
I will also be setting up a support group of students who want to
try this option.
Let me know if you are interested.
Those who turned in exam 4 on Tuesday should be able to pick up a graded
exam 4 at the end of class.
"There's more to life than (grading) cmoputer science." I had hoped to
get you grades tonight. Enough administrative work got in the way
that they won't get to you until Saturday night, and that's just for
the people who got exams in on time.
No, you do not need to take the final to invoke the good faith grade
