#124

Quiz question 5 of 7 in "Reading Assignment Chapter 1 (page 10-20) - Variables"

Incorrect: What kind of specials numbers do you know in Javascript?
Correct: What kind of special numbers do you know in Javascript?

Change “specials” to “special” by removing the “s”.

Spelling mistake in Returnning in the title 6 lectures before Javascript next level


#126

In C++, Optional, introduction to computing, MIT’s lecture, there is a typo:
said : cimputation
should said: computation


#127

In the c++ (little game project) you define what the game must do. One of the rules is “count the nr of guesses”.
You did not create that rule into your solution program.


#128

In the lecture Chapter 4 Exercises the entire content is repeated twice.


#129

Hey Divado - I am struggling with this 1 one question; the first

if(false) {
alert(“true”);
} - solid, got that completed

but when I move forward with

else if (5<3){ alert(“hello”) } else{ alert(“hi and hello!” ) } - will not process,

I tried writing out - would work, any suggestions ?


#130

Hey @Joel.OC,

The code

if (false) {
    alert("true");
  } 
  else if (5<3) {
    alert("hello");
  } else {
    alert("hi and hello!");
  }

is working fine for me.

I copied your code in my editor and had to change the quotes (from curly quotes to straight quotes), but otherwise it alerts “hi and hello”.

Hope it works for you too!

In the part C++, under Optional: Introduction to Computer Science - MIT Lecture the following text appears:

This is a wonderful lecture talking about computer science and cimputation. Although this lecture if optional I highly encourage you to watch it to get an overview of the field before we get our hands dirty

The cimputation should be computation.

BTW: this video really made me think again of my first programming courses :wink:
My first programming language was Pascal.


#132

Hi I am finding the jquery part of the course very confusing and mixed up. I think the modules are out of sequence.


#133

When I click on Complete and continue ->, it does not work. If I inspect the site, I see the following error message:


#134

I did an empty cache and hard reload and that seemed to work, but my check-boxes disappeared on the stuff I completed already. I just checked through everything again to get it all checked.


#135

This helped for a short period of time, the error is back.


#136

In C++, part “Little Game Project - Assignment” you mentioned as 4th element to deliver the number of guess attempts. In the “Little Game Project - Solution” you defined and initialized a variable numberOfAttempts, but you didn’t update nor displayed it afterwards :rofl:


#137

In the part “Javascript Programming”, one of the last sub parts has the title “ABSTRACTION and Returnning Values from Functions”. Could it be that this should be: ABSTRACTION and Returning Values from Functions. so Returnning -> Returning


#138

In

Structs C++ - Reading Assignments

the first sentence is

Let’s move on and learn about functions!

Shouldn’t this be structures, as we saw functions in the previous parts of the course?


#139

i dont know if this was intended but at the exercises four you have said the same thing twice:


#140

In “Understanding If-Else Deeper” => … to False the code inside the if-clause IS not executed… (you have there “if”)…

under the sape page => quiz - first question => What code “will” be executed?


#141

in the part: Optional: Introduction to Computer Science - MIT Lecture
it says:
This is a wonderful lecture talking about computer science and cimputation. Although this lecture if optional I highly encourage you to watch it to get an overview of the field before we get our hands dirty.

it should say"…computation."


#142

in the part of the little game where you have a player 1 and player 2 guessing P1’s number, you didnt add the part that the program counts the amount of attempts. i mean i solved that too but just saying that was also part of the game :stuck_out_tongue:
