The syllabus for CS 170.
We are using a free online textbook. The title of the book links to pdf containing the entire text. Be careful, because there are lots of versions of this text and this is the particular one that I will be using.
We will be using Python for this class. Free versions of the Python software, including the Idle development environment are available online through www.python.org, which also has lots of other good stuff. As of July 2018, the two latest released versions of Python are 2.7.15 and 3.7.0. For this class you want version 3.7.0, NOT version 2.6 or 2.7. This is important. Python is part of the student image and should be available on all Truman-provided computers. If the idea of installing software on your computer is a little daunting, you might wait until I go over this a little bit in class or you might ask me about it.
