Course Description

This programming course is intended for students who have taken a programming-languages course and who are interested in gaining more experience with functional-programming languages and techniques.

There are no lectures or exams for the course. Students are graded on the completion of open-ended coding assignments and, equally importantly, class participation. Class participation includes presenting programs and discussing the presented work of other students.

Students may use any functional programming language for completing assignments, and diversity of language choices will be encouraged. Suitable functional languages include (but are not limited to) Racket, Haskell, Scala, OCaml, F#, SML, Erlang, Clojure, Common Lisp, Agda, Idris, and Elm.
