Class 18

Held: Tuesday, 21 February 2017

We consider your work on exam 1.



  • Common problems
  • Improving style


News / Etc.

  • New partners.
  • Please make sure to return your computer cards to the jar.
  • Exam 2 distributed. We’ll talk about it in a few minutes.
  • It appears that some of you have ignored the instructions and have decided that the appropriate approach to homework is to say things like “You solve problems 1-3 and I’ll solve problem 4-5”. So, I’ll make it easy for you: If I find out you’ve done that, you get a zero on the homework.
  • I still have not had time to grade your quizzes. You may get them back on Friday.
  • Please discuss which switching format you and your partner will use
    • Switch every ten minutes
    • Switch midway through class
    • Switch every problem
