Wrapping Up the Semester

Well, the exams are all graded and final grades are submitted. I enjoyed this semester; I hope you did, too. Media computation was a fun way to learn about computation more generally, and a little about programming in Java, and a little bit about computer science. I hope that during those times when the course got tough you still felt like your hard work was worth it, that you were learning something interesting and valuable. At times this semester I may have sounded like a cheerleader, but I really do mean all I said about computer science -- it is a discipline that is at the edge of forward progress in every other discipline; it is redefining our lives as we live them; it is creating new possibilities for expression and for doing.

Good luck in CS II or wherever next semester finds you. I'd love to hear from you as you continue your studies at the university.

And please do stop by to pick up your final exam. Those things take up a lot of space in my file drawer!

Added Another Link

I have added another new link to the the LINKS menu on the left, to the homework submission requirements for the course. This includes electronic submission and hard copy, both of which are usually required. You may want to check them out now and then refer back to them as you work on upcoming assignments.

Added a Link

I have added a link to Prof. Schafer's web page for the 061 labs. You may want to refer to them as you work on the course.
