The next Problem Set is now available. It is not due until Monday 3/25 at 11:59pm. There is plenty of time to start and finish after you return from Spring break. However, if you're itching to write some code in the downtime of Spring Break, happy hacking!

The COMP110 team and I hope you enjoy your Spring Break and catch some much deserved rest and relaxation. See you all on the other side!

PS03 Weather Stats Posted and Worksheet Clarification

The next problem set, which involves processing weather data from RDU, is posted on the calendar.

Additionally, we did not cover in lecture how to represent classes in your environment diagram. You need this for the question 4 on the worksheet. For now, use this notation shown here:

Regrade Request Guidelines

Regrade requests shouldn't be used to ask conceptual questions about a particular item or debate the rubric. Questions should be taken to office hours, where the TAs are well-equipped to spend as much time as needed to walk through the question and give a full, detailed explanation.

Regrade requests that do not follow the guidelines below will be immediately closed. The window for requesting a regrade closes 72 hours after grades are released.

When it comes to regrade requests, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Regrade requests should only be submitted if at least one of the following are true:
    1. You have compared your answer with a friend and you two have the exact same answer but different grades on a question
    2. You answer exactly matches the solution given on the rubric. For code writing questions, first type your code exactly as written on the quiz into VSCode and verify there are no syntax errors. Note: This includes partial credit. We are not awarding partial credit on questions unless there is a rubric item for it.
  2. Regrade requests should be submitted on the question you believe was graded incorrectly (i.e. if you believe question 3.3 was graded incorrectly submit the regrade request on that question).
  3. If you believe multiple questions were graded incorrectly, you should submit one regrade request per question and not lump them all into one request.
  4. Your regrade request should be detailed and thoughtful, explaining precisely which of the steps listed in Step 1 you took to verify that your answer was correct or met the requirements specified in the rubric for full/partial credit.

Worksheet 1 Key

Happy Wednesday COMP110!

Worksheet 1 grades will not be available in Gradescope before your quiz on Thursday (2/14). Attached is the key for Worksheet 1 –– take today to look over the key, compare your answers to it, and come into office hours with any questions you have as you prepare for tomorrow! 

Also note that you will not be responsible for evaluating for-loops in environment diagrams on tomorrow's quiz, and that as mentioned in class we will be covering this in an upcoming class.

Videos to watch before Lecture on 2/5 Posted

There are 3 videos to watch for a total of ~30 minutes for Tuesday's lecture as we enter a new unit on arrays! Arrays improve our abilities to represent, store, and process data using algorithms.

Worksheet 0 Key


Worksheet 0 will not be graded in Gradescope by the time of your quiz on Thursday, so attached is the worksheet answer key. Feel free to look over it, compare your answers, and use it to prepare for your quiz. And as always, please come see us in office hours if you have questions!

Welcome to COMP110

Welcome back to Carolina! This Spring we'll go from zero-to-programmers with no prior programming experience expected. Comp 110 is open to and taken by all majors, not just those thinking about concentrating in Computer Science. Learning computer programming is a rewarding, challenging, and increasingly valuable skill. If you are a curious soul who enjoys creative problem solving: you're in the right place.

If you are not currently enrolled in the course and are hoping to get in you must show up to class on the first lecture and fill out a form announced in class. We are not able to accept late adds to the course this semester.
