** Week 9 is a "flipped classroom." Students must work through the lecture notes before class, while in-class time will be devoted to completing the homework assignment.
Each week builds on programming principles discussed in earlier lectures
and the homework assignments, so students are strongly encouraged to stay current
least you fall hopelessly behind.
Homework counts 50% toward the final course grade, and the Final Project accounts for the other 50%.
Projects are due Monday, December 12th.
