Most of the homework assignments for this course will require knowledge of the Scheme or LISP programming languages. These assignments do not require writing many lines of code, but do assume the ability to read and understand Scheme programs and to identify quickly the small regions that actually require modification to complete the assignment. The first assignment is intended to serve as a Scheme diagnostic, if you have trouble with this assignment, you should consider further Scheme programming experience before attempting CMSC 25000.
