ANNOUNCEMENTS

Midterm 2 Solutions Posted
2019052202

We won't have the midterms graded until this weekend, but I know that the Registrar's drop deadline is something that is on the minds of some of our students. I've gone ahead and published the solutions to the midterm on the Exams page so that, if you feel you need to, you can maybe do some kind of ballpark estimate of your performance before Friday based on those.

Pset4, Pset5 Grade Distributions Posted
2019051718

Hi all, the grade distribution histograms and stats for Pset4 and Pset5 have been posted. Please take note of the Grade Calculator Tool in the left sidebar of this page. It's an Excel spreadsheet with our grade formulas, so you can plug in your grades so far and run hypotheticals with different midterm 2 and final exam scores, future pset performance, etc.

Pset1, Pset2, Pset3 Grade Distributions Posted
2019050509

Hi all, the grade distribution histograms and stats for Pset1, Pset2, and Pset3 have been posted. Together with your midterm grade (and class distribution information), which you will receive this weekend, this will help you get a sense of where you stand in the class. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I'll also send out a class participation records summary at some point soon, so you can make sure that our records are correct (and if not let us know). Please take note of the Grade Calculator Tool in the left sidebar of this page. It's an Excel spreadsheet with our grade formulas, so you can plug in your grades so far and run hypotheticals with different midterm 2 and final exam scores, future pset performance, etc.

Pset1 Posted
2019040509

(Don't forget that Pset0 is due Saturday night!) Pset1 has now been posted. The checkpoint problems are due MONDAY, and the rest is due Friday. This will be our usual schedule rhythm for problem sets: go out Friday, checkpoint due Monday (first few psets only), and main deadline Friday.

Welcome
2019010622

Welcome to CS103! I am so excited to meet all of you! Don't tell anyone, but I think CS103 is my favorite of all the different courses I teach(!!). Class starts Monday April 1st at 3:00pm in Hewlett 200.

FAQ: There will not be videos of lecture, since the SCPD quarter for 103 was Autumn Qtr this year. (SCPD is responsible for video production on campus, and they generally do each different course once per year.) Sorry about that.
