Introduction to Computer Science

Announcement 1:

Many rules for the course are explained on the first of the notes for the lectures.

Announcement 2:

In the second quarter Jakob Rodenberg will be "instruktor" for S7 and Magnus Find will be "instruktor" for S17.

The textbook:

Computer Science: An Overview, 11th Edition, by J. Glenn Brookshear, 2012.
There is a homepage for the textbook (10th edition), including the simulator.
A list of errata for the textbook can be found here.
The textbook will be supplemented with notes.


There will be no exam at the end of the course; instead there are mandatory assignments, all of which must be completed well and on time in order to pass the course. You are allowed to retry (only once) on at most 2, of assignments 2 through 7, which were not approved the first time.


The questions for the re-exam in June 2011 were here. (This is only relevant if you flunk in the fall. Note that the date given in that document is for June, 2011, when it was June 29.)
