This was the first Thursday we met. I  gone to Virginia Higher Education Advocacy Day the previous Thursday.

After taking a quiz on material on the sequence from source code to execution and binding times. A few questions on the quiz came from the previous chapters.

Writing and the first writing assignment took center stage after that. The assignment is detailed at http://paprika.umw.edu/~ernie/cpsc401/01212010.html.
On Tuesday students will bring a list of at least 3 references for the question they will write about as well as an outline of what they will write.

Finally we got to discussing and showing examples of working with ML. We focused on looking at the first two tutorials in  “A Gentle Introduction to ML” by Andrew Cumming of Napier University in Edinburgh.  On Tuesday students will bring the answers to the self assessment section of each of those tutorials. We’ll discuss them nd then try some group work in the lab working on the problems in Chapter 5.  I haven’t told the class yet, but I’ll be away on Thursday for interviews related to my work on the CAS Dean search committee.

Here are a couple of pictures of  the class while they were taking the quiz.
