Week 6 – Let the projects begin! #mooc #mmooc #seq21oct 13

Seq21Oct3: Sent 2 December 2013.

Mechanical MOOCers,

Hope everyone had a good break, however you spent it. On to week 6. Here we begin a shift in the course materials from a focus on reading and exercises to project work. Now we’re gettin’ (more) real.

Here are your materials and tasks:



  • First: Complete sections 3.10 and 3.11 from Written Exercises 3
  • Second: Complete sections 3.6 and Optionals Exercises 1 & 2 from Handout 3 of 6.189 A Gentle Introduction to Computer Science
  • Complete Project 1

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!
