Your first assignment consists of four Karel programs.

Getting Started

There is a starter project including all of these problems that you can access using a link below. Since this is the first assignment we will ask you a few questions about the honor code before you can download the starter project. Once you have the starter code set up, edit the program files so that the assignment actually does what it’s supposed to do (see the assignment handout), which will involve a cycle of coding, testing, and debugging until everything works. The final step is to submit your assignment.

You should write the code for your solution on your own.

Note: You may only use concepts covered in the Karel pythonreader to solve these problems. In particular, you may not use Python concepts you may have learned previously such as variables, parameters, return, break, etc. If you have any questions about what is ok/not ok to use, please feel free to ask on Ed.

Assignment Files



Note: If you wrote a Karel program as an extension in ExtensionKarel.py and made new Karel Worlds to run the program in, please submit the .w files alongside your assignment code.
Note: If you are getting an error in some worlds that Karel has no beepers left when it should have some beepers, go to the corresponding world file in the worlds folder and replace the word INFINITE with INFINITY. If you downloaded the starter code after 8pm on April 8th, you will not have this issue.
Note: If you are getting an error when calling the pick_beeper function that says AttributeError: 'Karel' object has no attribute 'on_beeper', that error has been fixed in a new version of the starter code. If you downloaded the starter code before 3:00 on April 8th and are seeing this error, you may need to redownload the starter code.
