CS111 Problem Set 0

This problem set contains 4 tasks: the first three are due before 7:00pm on Tuesday, September 4th, and the last task must be completed before Friday, September 7th.

Task 1: Request a CS Account (due: 7:00pm Tuesday, Sept 4th)

Starting with the first labs on September 5th/6th and for the remainder of the semester, you will need an account on cs.wellesley.edu, the Wellesley computer science department server. We will often shorten this to "the cs server" or just "cs". You need this account to submit all assignments in CS111.

If this is your first Wellesley CS class, then you must fill out this account request form. This form is only accessible from an on-campus network. If you have already taken a Wellesley CS course (e.g. CS115), then you do NOT need to fill out the form.

Make sure you select "cs111" from the drop-down menu at the bottom before you press the "Submit Account Request" button at the end of the form.

What if you are not officially enrolled in the class but hope to get in? Go ahead and fill out the account request form. If it turns out that you do not enroll, we will delete your account.

Task 2: Fill out this form (help us get to know you) (due: 7:00pm Tuesday, Sept 4th)

This semester, we have over 120 students taking CS111. Yeehaw! Please fill out this form so we can get to know you a little better. Required items are marked with a red *. It'll only take a couple of minutes. Thanks!

You need to be signed into Google with your wellesley.edu email address in order to access the form. For example, open your Wellesley email in browser, and then in another tab of that browser window, open cs111.wellesley.edu and navigate to the form.

Task 3: Subscribe to our cs111-fall18 google group (due 7:00pm Tuesday, Sept 4th)

Many of you have been directly added to the cs111-fall18 google group. If you are not a member, please add yourself to the cs111-fall18 group. This is important because this is how we contact all enrolled students with changes in course content or deadlines. This is also a place where you can post questions (no python code, please).

Task 4: Review the CS111 site (complete before Friday, Sept 7th lecture)

Note that there will be a quiz in Friday's Sept 7th lecture on the contents of Task 4.

Explore the course site, there's lots of information in there. Below are some particularly useful pages that you should read/familiarize yourself with.
