evaluations in your posts. You are going to lose points.

▪ No late submissions will be accepted.

▪ Post early to not lose the preferred topic and give the
other students enough time to respond.

the subtopic in the book

Dr. Adriana Badulescu COSC2436 Programming Fundamentals III 6

Initial Posts
▪ For example, if I want to talk about the first subtopic in the book

which is about using recursion for computing factorials, in the
textbook, I am going to go to the Chapter 18 and find the
subtopic, which is in section “18.2 Case Study: Computing
Factorials“.

Dr. Adriana Badulescu COSC2436 Programming Fundamentals III 7

▪ Chapter is Chapter
18

▪ Section is 18.2
▪ Name is “Case Study:

Computing Factorials“
▪ Page is 721

Initial Posts

▪ To find the topic in the chapter presentation
PDF:

▪ Open the Unit, find the Reading Assignment and
Practice Exercise for the Unit and open the
ChapterX.pdf where X is the chapter number

▪ Find your subtopic

Dr. Adriana Badulescu COSC2436 Programming Fundamentals III 8

Initial Posts
▪ For the example, I am going to go to eCampus and

open the Chapter18.pdf presentation under Unit 1,
and the subtopic is on slide 4.

Dr. Adriana Badulescu COSC2436 Programming Fundamentals III 9

Initial Posts

▪ Thus, for the example, I am going to name the Initial Post:

“Case Study: Computing Factorials – Chapter 18 – Textbook

Section 18-2 – Page 721 – Presentation Slide 3”

▪ Then make a minimum 300 words post in which I summarize

in my own words what is factorial, what is recursion, why

should I use recursion for factorial, how would the code

would look like, explain how would it work, why using

recursion is better/worse that other methods.
