The First Exercise in Programming

Wading through the grading for the first exercise in Programming 1, I have some suggestions for my froshers:

  1. Putting your name on your report will help get you the credit for your work. Adding the name of the class and the date are also good ideas.
  2. Using a spelling checker is a very good idea. You can check the spelling of names with the Wikipedia.
  3. Proofreading what you submit might be helpful.
  4. Bullet lists do not count as complete sentences.
  5. Constantly referring to the teacher by name does not get you extra points.
  6. Yes, a screen shot or two is nice. No, a report that consists only of screen shots is not okay.
