The main goal of CodeLab is to give you practice writing code. Not whole programs-- though there will be some of those-- but small snippets of Java. I will be assigning small sets of assignments as part of the introduction to Java-- they are meant to both review the material as well as getting your 'fingers' used to coding Java. There are deadlines with each set (usually the next class meeting), and I expect you to keep to them.
CodeLab is free to Brooklyn College students-- all you have to do is register for the CodeLab for our section. Go
to turingscraft.com and click on the
register link in the upper
right hand corner. Follow the instructions, and when asked for the section access code, type in the value that
you received from me via email. That's it!
Once you've registered, you're good to go. Go back to the Turing's Craft Home Page
and this time click
login. Enter the username/password you registered with and begin using CodeLab.
These exercises are a great way for you to get feedback on whether you're understanding the material in class. The system is not meant as a quiz or testing device-- it's there to help you. If you submit an incorrect solution, you can always try again-- make sure you read the hints and feedback the system gives you-- it will usually help you on your way to a correct submission.
