Welcome to the course website for CS2110. On this site you will find material to support you in this course. Note that  this material is under development and is likely to change. Material for any lectures we have yet to cover in class should be treated as provisional.

Course News:

  • April 7: I have posted a number of past midterms and finals. Note: These were for past offerings of this course. Not all questions that appear in them are on material that we have covered this term. Not all questions would be reasonable for me to ask you on your final. However, they is a strong overlap, some of these questions (or one's very like them) will appear on your final.
