Task 1: Install CS111 software on your laptop

You will often work on your own computer for coursework. Follow the instructions on the CS111 Software page to (1) install Thonny (a Python coding environment) on your laptop and (2) use Thonny to open a sample Jupyter notebook on your computer. (We use Jupyter notebooks in lectures for practicing Python.)

Please fill out this Software Status Form after attempting to install the CS111 software and running the notebook. If you encounter issues, you can get installation help during CS111 help hours during the first week of class.

Task 2: Create a Gradescope Account (with your Wellesley gmail)

Gradescope is where you will take CS 111 quizzes. Most of you have already been added to the course and will have received an email from Gradescope.

If you are not yet enrolled as a CS111 student in Gradescope, then follow the steps below, using your Wellesley email address.
