Working Together:  In general, learning takes place best within a community.  However, when learning to write programs, there is a strong temptation to give and recieve help at a level of detail that prevents one of the parties from actually learning the skill.  If you are asked to give help, try to offer help by asking questions and leading your peers to discover the solution for themselves.  If you think you need help, first make sure you have followed the "other tips" below.

Submitting Assignments:  Whenever you are submitting an assignment (unless otherwise specified), you should submit a tar or zip file that, when unpacked, creates a folder named something like "cjonesW1" for a student with email "cjones".  Naturally, the new folder should contain the solutions to the exercises from specified week.  For assignments after the first one, you will be submitting assignments through the Eureka web site.  If you encounter problems with Eureka, email a tar or zip file as described above.

Other Tips:  Most people find that they cannot write a program as a stream of consciousness.  This is especially true of students first learning to design programs.  You will save yourself significant frustration if you follow several guidelines.
