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 you have a Wellesley domain account (all Wellesley College students do) and this is your first Wellesley CS class, then you must fill out this account request form. This form will first require them to authenticate with their Wellesley username and password. 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: Help us get to know you (due: 7:00pm Tuesday, Sept 4th)

This semester, we have over 120 students taking CS111. Yeehaw!

Task 3: Subscribe to our students-cs111-f18 google group (due 7:00pm Tuesday, Sept 4th)

Many of you have been directly added to the students-cs111-f18 google group. If you are not a member, please add yourself to the students-cs111-f18 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.
