Gary M. Weiss' Student Animations

Below are some of the projects that were done by students in my Structures of Computer Science (CISC 1100) class, an introductory class that satisfies the Fordham core requirement for mathematical/computational reasoning. These simple animations were constructed using the Alice programming environment, which can be learned in about an hour by students without any programming background (you may download the program for free from the Alice site). These animations were done by students who were not Computer Science majors and where we only spent 2-3 classes on (alice) programming.

Note that because the files are large it may take a minute for the "movies" to load once you click on them. Enjoy!
