  • The final exam and solutions have been posted. Note that a few point values changed slightly from the handed-out values (example: problem 21 is worth 6 instead of 4 points).
  • Problem set and exam grades have been posted to Catalyst Gradebook.
  • PS7, PS8, and final exams are available for pickup from Mike's office, CSE 562.

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

  • Updated Cross-Checker results have been posted and entered into the gradebook.
    • 10 points are awarded based on the number of students for which you detected bugs (following a uniform distribution)

  • Clarification: PS4 re-returnin is due at 5pm on Friday.
  • If your PS4 returnin failed due to the examples in PS8, please email Todd at tws@cs.washington.edu to make sure you aren't penalized for those returnin attempts.

Sunday, May 30, 2010

  • The exam review and wrapup lectures have been swapped. The exam review will be on Wednesday. Come with questions. This will encourage you to start reviewing early and will permit the review to extend into section on Thursday if necessary.
  • Problem Set 8 has been updated with additional hints.
  • Problem Set 6 returnin is enabled. It is due on Friday, June 4 at 5pm. Your code must pass the nullness checker to pass returnin.
  • Problem Set 4 returnin has been re-enabled, with more tests. Your returnin score will be the average of your original PS4 returnin score (every student got full credit) and this second one. Ensuring that you pass the stricter PS4 returnin before you get started on PS6 returnin may save you a lot of time by localizing problems to the PS4 code. PS4 returnin does not require your code to pass the nullness checker.
  • Due to an error, some students received emails from the Autograder for PS4 returnin. This run of the autograder will not count toward your grade; you should resubmit even if you passed all of the new tests.

Wednesday, May 25, 2010

  • Problem Set 8 has been released. PS8 is due at 8pm on June 1.
  • The lecture calendar has been updated:
    Wed, May 26

We are interested in your feedback on the class and how it may be improved in future quarters. (You'll also get a chance to give feedback on the course evaluation forms at the end of the quarter.)
    Fri May 28
    No lecture. Mike will hold office hours in 002 during lecture time, to help with Problem Set 8.
    Mon May 31
    No lecture. Memorial Day.
    Wed Jun 2
