In this lab, you'll practice defining and invoking functions to solve programming tasks.
By the end of this lab, you should be more comfortable...
- defining functions
- invoking functions
- explaining the differences between parameters and arguments
- using pass-by-reference and pass-by-value parameters
Work on the following zyLabs. While you do them, be sure to implement incrementally—write a line or two of code, then compile/run it. Test frequently by clicking "Submit mode" and then "Submit for grading". You have unlimited submits, so don't worry about using some quota up. We will periodically check in as a class.
- zyLab 6.19: Miles to track laps
- zyLab 6.21: A jiffy
- zyLab 6.23: Swapping variables
- zyLab 6.27: Remove spaces
Click "Submit mode" then "Submit for grading" when you are finished so I can see that you have done the zyLab. Your grade for the lab is based on effort, not whether you complete all of the assigned problems; you will get full credit as long as you work diligently during the 2-hour lab period.
Please see the syllabus and course schedule (both on the homepage) for more information about how many programming assignments you are required to pass, due dates, etc. Of note: you do not need to attempt every or even most PAs.
