Introduction to CS110 Laboratory
The lab component of CS110 is designed to help reinforce fundamental concepts and theory in computer science. In the labs, you will design, implement and execute computer programs in python to carry out different tasks and to solve a variety of problems. Using your personal robots and gamepads you will explore topics in robotics, artificial intelligence, game design and music. The ultimate goal of these labs is to help you develop your problem solving, debugging and analytical skills.

Please note: ALL Lab Assignments are due at the start of the following lab for the convenience of your peers. If the lab is assigned on Tuesday the 7th, then the assignment is due on Tuesday the 14th. No extensions, then no exceptions. ANYTHING HANDED IN AFTER THE DEADLINE WILL BE 1/2 CREDIT AT MAXIMUM. If you wish for an extension because of an emergency, then it must be established BEFORE THE DEADLINE. (You have been warned!)
Assignment Etiquette: Please be aware that collaboration with your peers is fine, but COPYING is NOT. Please keep your eyes on your own screen when discussing assignments. Thanks!
It is recommended that there be a HARD COPY (aka printout) of your lab in Julia's Mailbox outside of her office (rm 249) e-mail is not always reliable and the spam filter may decide your code is harmful, in which case your Lab will never be seen.
Bonus Points: If you have been granted bonus points for pretty or unique code that does the job, please e-mail the code so praised to Doug (dblank (at) cs (dot) brynmawr (dot) edu) so your peers may have examples of code other than the ones that I give in Lab.
