This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:
- to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
- to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices
What is this problem set trying to do
In this problem set we are really testing your computational thinking.
There is a rule at our school that students must not have more than 2 major exams in one calendar day. This rule is designed to reduce stress.
- create a list of students
- create a list of classes
- map the students to classes
- determine if a class has an exam
- determine the day of the week the class has the exam
- loop through the test events and count the test events on one day. If any of the students has more than 2 exams on one day, you must indicate a warning, indicating the conflicting student, class and day.
How you will be assessed
Your solution will be graded using the following axis:
- To what extent does your code implement the features required by our specification?
- To what extent is there evidence of effort?
- To what extent did your code meet specifications?
- To what extent did your code meet unit tests?
- To what extent is your code free of bugs?
- To what extent is your code written well (i.e. clearly, efficiently, elegantly, and/or logically)?
- To what extent is your code eliminating repetition?
- To what extent is your code using functions appropriately?
- To what extent is your code readable?
- To what extent is your code commented?
- To what extent are your variables well named?
- To what extent do you adhere to style guide?
