Annoucements

November 8th, 2018

As I mentioned in class just before our in-class test, the lab sessions are currently inline with lectures, so today’s laboratory session will not proceed. We will need to cover the material in tomorrow’s lecture before we can proceed with labs. Therefore, today’s CS1112 lab session will not go ahead. Tomorrow's classes (Friday) take place as scheduled.

October 18th, 2018

Next Friday's in-class test will cover Algorith, Sets, and Functions. This material is covered in lectures up to, and including, Week 5 Class 1. The relevant labs are those from Weeks 4, 5, and 6. The solutions to these exercises are available on the problem classes page. Relations will not be examined in this first test.

October 12th, 2018

As discussed and agreed in lectures, the two in-class tests associated with this module will take place as follows:

  • 12-1pm, Friday October 26th, Room 1.07
  • 12-1pm, Friday November 23rd, Room 1.07

October 3rd, 2018

Following the discussion in last Friday's lecture, lab sessions begin on Thursday, October 4th
