In this lab you will cover:
1. Select the menu item Go -> Connect to Server and type afp://collaboration.bowdoin.edu
2. Enter your personal Bowdoin login (e-mail) Name and Password.
3. A new icon called Computer Science will appear on the desktop.
4. Double-click the folder Computer Science -> csci107
The following folders are particularly useful for completing this and other assignments in this course.
csci107 -> Users -><your username> is a folder in which you can save work from week to week during the semester.
csci107 -> Invitation contains the lab software for many exercises in this course.
csci107 -> Drop Box is the place where you can submit an electronic copy of your completed work when you finish an assignment.
csci107 -> Lectures is a folder where copies of PowerPoint lecture notes will be kept during the semester, for your use.
Drag a copy of the folder csci107 -> Invitation to your desktop, and then close the folder csci107.
Once you are finished in the lab, be sure to drag the csci107 icon to the Trash - this step disconnects you from the server and prevents someone else (who uses this iMac later in the day) from accessing files in your personal folder by mistake.
In this window, select Algorithm -> Search for Value, and then select the Run button. Watch each step execute and the Target value change. You may Reset and Rerun this exercise several times to get a feeling for the relationship between it and the date values.
Now select Algorithm -> Search for Largest, and then select Run again. Note the behavior of this new algorithm for each of several different sets of data values (using Reset and Run several times).
This search animator will be a useful assistant while you are
answering the questions below.
Be sure to justify your answers! You may do this work either by hand or with a word processor (e.g. MS Word). Also, you may choose to do this assignment either by yourself or in a group. However, solutions should be written up individually and handed in on Monday, at the beginning of class.
To submit a file electronically, you should first rename it so that you are identified as the author (e.g., give it a name like lab1-ltoma). Then drag the file to the csci107 -> Drop Box folder. Be careful not to drag an entire folder into the Drop Box; only a single file at a time can be submitted.
Once you are finished in the lab, be sure to drag the csci107 icon to the Trash (this step disconnects you from the server and prevents someone else, who may use this iMac later in the day, from accidentally accessing files in your personal folder) and log out!
