Project 2 Comments


Remember that you must have:
At the top of your program, or you will get very strange errors.

Questions from Students:

Professor Chang,
Was I dreaming, or did you mention an example titled "sine.c" that demonstrated the use of the sine function - possibly in your lecture of Oct 4th? I wasn't able to find it in the lecture notes posted for that day, yet the other examples related to Proj2 are there (such as triangle.c). I hope it was your intention to post that example, for of all of us folks who have very little hair left!

Dear Bald Dreamer
Sorry, I forgot to include it in the notes for October 4th. It's up now.

Professor Chang,
I have a question on the grading of project 2. I see that you want us to try and include as many implementations as possible. Will our grade be based on the number of implementations, or rather do the number not really count, and we will be graded on the basis of what we have? Not that I really think that this will matter to me, but I am having a devil of a time with the fifth implementation about graphing on different x ranges, and am worried that if I cannot get it to work, my grade will not be able to reach, say an A level or something.

Dear Devil-Battler
If you implement the first 3 features correctly, with a working program and well-documented, readable code, then you will receive 100% of the grade for Project 2. Features 4 and 5 are for people who wanted to have a more challenging assignment; they are optional.

Prof. Chang,
What if you submit your program and then find a small mistake. If you have submitted early, may you amend your program and resubmit, or is it a done deal?
Signed: Just sick about it.

Dear Just sick about it,
Yes, you can turn in the project up to 12 midnight on the due date. We will simply grade the final version, but please check your program before you submit. It gets confusing to have 5 versions of everyone's program lying around.
