Part IB Assessed Exercise Briefing
Principal lecturer: Dr John Fawcett
Taken by: Part IA (50% option), Part IA (25% option), Part IA (Maths with Computer Science)
Syllabus (although there is no real syllabus for this briefing lecture)
Syllabus for 2007/8 Concurrent Systems and Applications
The purpose of this briefing lecture is to describe the IB Java Tick 0, an assessed exercise to be undertaken by all students who intend to read Part IB of the Computer Science Tripos in the next academic year. It is assessed as part of the second year Tripos examination.
The summer programming work serves to give students some hands-on experience of Java programming so that the second year courses on advanced programming techniques does not leave them completely bewildered! Understanding the syllabus for Concurrent Systems and Applications is therefore the target.
The IB Java Tick 0 exercise uses a TickFrame.java file which can be downloaded here, to save students re-typing it from the handout.
The handout is available as a 1up PDF.
