Here are your materials and tasks:
- Text: Chapter 12-14 from How to Think Like a Computer Scientist.
- Video : Lecture 7 and Recitation 4 from 6.00SC Introduction to Computer Science

As always, ask for help for help on OpenStudy or from your cluster peers. And remember to hand out medals on OpenStudy to anyone who helps you out!
Show off them mad skills!
