Questions? Just ask!

GridWorld Assignments

The GridWorld Part 4 Assignment is Optional. This assignment was inadvertently left off of the 18 week syllabus! It will not be formally graded, however you may wish to complete it to help you prepare for upcoming assessments. All GridWorld part 4 specific questions will be thrown out if they occur on assessments. However, you are still responsible for all information discovered in the GridWorld part 3 exercise. As always, I would love to help you. Just ask!

**Gridworld Part 3 is still required. You will need to be familiar with Gridworld 3 before taking any further quizzes and tests!**

AP Exam Prep Tip

The AP CS exam is a paper and pencil exam. To prepare for this exam, you should be hand writing code as often as possible. You may want to practice writing code for assignments with paper and pencil before typing it into the editor to check and debug. Coding on paper is much more difficult that coding with an editor, so we need to practice this skill often!
