Module 3: Update 1

Hello Everyone, and welcome to Module 3!

This week we will be learning about the “arrays” and how to use them.

In computer science, an array is a data structure consisting of a collection of elements (values or variables), each identified by at least one array index or key.

Here’s an example of an array in C:

int grades[5] = {90, 100, 80, 75, 91};

The array assigned to the variable grades contains 5 elements (grades).

Here’s the link to Module 3.

What you must do before class on Tuesday, June 6:

We will be spending more time in class framing out both Lab 2 and Problem Set 3.
