Problem Solving with C++ (10th edition) by Walter Savitch
It's fine to buy an older (cheaper) edition, but please keep in mind that I will assign problems from the book occasionally. It's your responbility to make sure you're doing the correct problems.

Computer Science is equal parts art and science. There is rarely a problem to solve for which only one solution exists. Computer scientists develop good software by applying knowledge, educated guesses, trial-and-error, and collaboration. We have office hours for COMP11, but it is often just as helpful to talk over your approach with your classmates as it is to talk it over with a Teaching Assistant or Professor.
Office hours are hosted every week by undergraduate Teaching Assistants, graduate Teaching Assistants, and the professor. Please come by and talk to us, but think of us as fellow computer scientists who can talk through your coding approach with you (not as experts who can swoop in and solve every problem!).

Office Hours Guidelines
Remember -- TAs do not do your homework for you! You are 100% responsible for completing every homework assignment. Their job is help you think about your solution, not to give you the "correct" one. Please be respectful of their time and their job.
Sign up for our course piazza site. Piazza is a tool for connecting with your fellow students. Because there are so many different ways to approach a CompSci problem, there is lots of room for lively discussion. You may not post your code on Piazza, but you can ask, answer, and discuss different things you've tried, what worked and didn't work, and resources you've found.
Do not think of Piazza as a canonical source of information from the teaching staff. Ask questions, sure -- but don't expect immediate answers ro every coding bug you've run into. Try it yourself first, and talk with other students!
providesystem, which we will learn about during the first lab.
The course grade will be based upon the scores on the quizzes, labs midterm exam, homework, and the final exam as follows:
|Labs (7)||15%, lowest dropped|
|Quizzes (6)||10%, lowest dropped|
|Midterm Exam (2)||20%|
|Final Exam (1)||20%|
Tufts University values the diversity of our students, staff, and faculty; recognizing the important contribution each student makes to our unique community. Tufts is committed to providing equal access and support to all qualified students through the provision of reasonable accommodations so that each student may fully participate in the Tufts experience.

|Lateness and Attendance|
Your lowest lab/quiz grade will be dropped. You are responsible for knowing the lab schedule on the labs page.
You may submit ONE homework up to 5 days late by cashing in your late token. (Details on the assignments page.)
You must sit exams in the section you are officially registered for. You may not miss any exams without documented verification of an illness or emergency. Missed exams will count zero.
