I have posted the final course grades. Given the high class averages, there was essentially no curve.
The CS 1044 Common-time Final Exam will be given on Wednesday December 18 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm in Torgersen 2150. The format will be similar to the other two tests; it will be comprehensive. I'll discuss details in class.
I've posted a key for Test 2 and the Test 2 form on the Koofers page.
I've posted a corrected third data set for Project 5. The previous version contained an error (I had "<=" in a comparison when I should have had "<").
I've posted new data sets for Project 5. The capitalization is now correct. Note that the swap count for selection sort is based on eliminating unnecessary swaps.
I've posted a new sample program illustrating the use of arrays of structs on the Notes page.
I've updated the Project 5 specification to include a description of the display command.
Test 2 will be given in class on Wednesday, November 20. The test will cover everything through the chapter on structs.
I've posted a draft specification for Project 5. The project will be due at midnight on Sunday December 8; no submissions will be accepted after midnight Wednesday December 11.
I've posted a minor (but important) revision to the draft specification for Project 4. The changes are highlighted; one relates to the input file format, and one to the output file format.
The complete draft specification for Project 4 has been posted, along with a data set.
A preliminary draft specification for Project 4 is now available. This is intended to give you enough information to do good, profitable design work, but not enough to write much C++ code yet. It would be good to start giving the design some thought.
The key for Test 1 is now available on the Koofer page.
The specification for Project 3 is available now, along with test data.
I've posted some more test data for Project 2. Be sure to test with this.
I've posted a revised specification for the second out-of-lab project. The changes are simply to correct the format of the sentinel line.
I've posted a corrected sample input file for the second out-of-lab project. The original was missing a tab after the sentinel string.
I've posted a draft specification for the second out-of-lab project. There will not be any major changes.
I've posted a minor revision of the specification for the first out-of-lab project. The only change is that I guarantee the opening and closing prices for the stock will not be equal.
A draft specification for the first out-of-lab programming project is posted on the Projects page. The specification might change slightly if any typographical errors are discovered, but the basic nature of the assignment will not change. Note that we will not finish covering the material for the assignment for some time, so do not panic if you don't understand how to do it yet. I won't be setting this up on the Curator System until much closer to the due date; I'll announce it via the listserv when I do.
Test 1 will be given on Wednesday, October 2. Tentatively, the test will cover everything on the course syllabus through Booleans and Selection (Notes 5 and Dale 5).
Note for students with AP CS background: the use of non-Standard language extensions, such as APstring and APvector, is expressly banned in our courses. Standard C++ includes alternatives, many of which are superior.
