Given all the discussion about exercises, we though we'd throw in some
of the work we've done. MSU has taught its CS1 course in Python since
the Fall of 2007. Each semester we have the students complete 11
programming projects (as homework). The homeworks start out easy and
work their way up. Each project focuses on a particular topic i.e.,
strings, working with files, dictionaries etc.
We've collected those projects on a webpage. Each project has some
supporting material and a solution. However, at the moment the solution
is not shown. We are working on that.
Some of the projects ended up in the book we recently published
("Practice of Computing Using Python", Punch, Enbody) but there are over
58 listed here (and more coming) so there is a lot more listed on the
If you have any comments, we'd love to hear them.
