CS:1210 (22C:16) Exam 2 Announcement

Exam 2 for CS:1210 (22C:16) "Computer Science I: Fundamentals" will be held on Apr 4th (Friday) from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in 100 PH (Philips Hall).

During the exam you can use any written material you bring, including lecture notes, Python programs, Python documentation, etc. Make sure you bring everything that you feel you will need to the exam because you will not be allowed to share or borrow material with classmates during the exam. You will have to turn off and remove from your vicinity all electronic devices including cell phones, lap tops, calculators, dictionaries, etc.

The exam is worth 130 points, which is 13% of your final grade. Here is a brief description of the structure of the exam. There are 4 problems in the exam. The first problem is worth 40 points and the remaining problems are worth 30 points each. For each problem points are equally divided among multiple parts of a problem.

Use Quizzes 5-8 and Practice Problem Sets 5-8 for practicing for Exam 2. Also, take a look at Exam 2 from Spring 2012 and Exam 2 from Spring 2013. Both exams involve some material that I did not cover this semester. For example, some problems involve functions map, reduce, and filter, which we did not discuss this semester. In any case, Problems 3 and 4 from Spring 2012 and Problems 2(a) and 3 from Spring 2013 are good problems to try to solve on your own.
