Assignments
There are two types of homework assignments in this course.
1)  MyProgrammingLab – these are short exercises to help you get familiar with new material.  If you purchased a textbook at the TCC bookstore, it should have come with an access code.
     If not, you will need to purchase one online at www.MyProgrammingLab.com
     Check the course syllabus for the MyProgrammingLab CourseID.  You will need this the first time you register.
     Log in to MyProgrammingLab to check due dates for each chapter and to complete each assignment. 
     These assignments are generally due the class before the Homework Assignments (below).
     Getting Started With My Programming Lab – short PowerPoint presentation
2)  Homework Assignments – These assignments are short programming exercises that are to be completed and submitted by hand during class. 
      Many of the problems are from the textbook.  The assignments are listed below. 
      Check the Course Information (syllabus) link to see when each assignment is due.
