CS1101S or
CS1010?
why are
you here?

Brief History
• Scheme was developed at MIT
in 1975 to teach programming
methodology
• First introduced at NUS 13
years ago
• I took this class at MIT in 1994.
What is
Scheme?

You know

Can you solve
this
for 1,000 discs?
How would we
think about the
problem?
What if we
have one
disc?
What if we have
no discs?
Do nothing!

CS1101S or
CS1010?
How to
decide?

Test
Caveat
• To enroll in CS1101S, min
requirement of A grade for ‘A’
Level Math or equivalent.
• Or you can appeal at
Undergrad Office
like
?
Scheme vs C
•Who would you
marry?
–Pretty but poor?
–Rich but ugly?

10 Reasons NOT to take CS1101S
1. If you hate Math
2. If you don’t like challenges
3. If you cannot manage selfstudying and need to be
spoonfed
4. If you just want to get a free A
5. If you are not interested in
learning more
10 Reasons NOT to take CS1101S
If you don’t like personalised attention
If you don’t wish to meet like-minded
peers
8. If you don’t care about applying your
knowledge
9. If you don’t take shocks well/if you fear
evilness
10. If you don’t like shuai prof :P

Why are
you here?
What is the
meaning of life?
many paths to
success
“Your time is limited,
so don't waste it living
someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by
dogma - which is living
with the results of
other people's
thinking. Don't let the
noise of other's
opinions drown out
your own inner
voice......
......And most
important, have the
courage to follow your
heart and intuition.
They somehow
already know what
you truly want to
become. Everything
else is secondary.”
- Steve Jobs
