CS2135 Programming Language Concepts
Lecture and Reading Schedule

Note: The "Extra Exercises" column provides additional practice exercises that you can try. These will not be graded, and are separate from the homework assignments. You are always welcome to bring questions on these practice problems to office hours. We strongly recommend that you try some of these exercises as you will need to be comfortable programming in Scheme by the third week of the course!
