Problem sets are designed to really get you thinking!!

Problem sets are designed to challenge you to apply your knowledge of computer science. Problem sets can be completed in many different programming languages. All problem sets are calculated as summative grades. Click here to understand how problem sets are assessed

Difficulty Level Key: 
* Beginner: this problem set is good for beginners
* Advanced: this problem set should be challenging 
* Expert: This problem set is very challenging for most students (but it can be solved).

All problem sets have opportunity to exceed standards.

Use an idea, equation, principle, theory or law in relation to a given problem or issue.
