CPS 004, FALL 2005
The bookstore is out and it may be weeks before they get more in. You can try www.amazon.com or another bookstore. Only get it if it is in stock.
This bookstore has some copies left as of Sept. 7. They can be shipped to you.
The New version should be ok. It is is used, make sure it is not the Beta version of the book. The new book was just printed this summer.
This classwork was just for practice and will not be turned in.
You need to finish this classwork for homework if you did not finish it in class. Some classworks will be long and you will need to finish them for homework. You can meet with your partner and finish it and then put one web page up and both of you link to it. If you cannot meet with your partner outside of class, you can both finish it separately and put your own web pages up.
This is a short assignment. Click on Bulletin Board on the CPS 4 web page and post a poem about yourself. READ through Assignment 1 before doing this.
Look under "assignments" on the CompSci 4 web page. You need to create a web page for your Compsci 4 work and send email to let us know where it is. See the requirements for what must be on this web page.
We will setup consulting hours and office hours, they will be posted on the CompSci 4 web page starting next week. If you are having trouble with web pages, then you can go to consulting hours and get one on one help.
You can also post questions on the course bulletin board. Please try to be explicit as possible (Having trouble setting up your computer, please tell us what type of computer, operating system, etc...).
There is already a question answered on the bulletin board. If you are shy and want to post your questions anonymously, then don't login and your post will be from "guest"
This is a hands on course. During class we will be working in pairs on the computer to design 3-D virtual worlds. Outside of class projects will be done in pairs and singly.
CompSci 4 will introduce you to the world of computer science and you will learn how to make impressive animations for your other courses or clubs. If you want to take a second computer science course after this course, CompSci 4 will prepare you for CompSci 6.
If you have taken CompSci 1, you can take this course. If you have taken CompSci 6 or CompSci 100 then you cannot get credit for this course.
