Lecture 16: Abstraction

This assignment is due on Tuesday, March 1 at 11:59pm. Submit it using Handin as assignment lecture16. You only need to submit the first 2 exercises.

Recall that
; A ListOfNumbers is one of:
; - empty
; - (cons Number ListOfNumbers)

Exercise 1. Design a function triple-numbers that takes a ListOfNumbers and triples every number in it to produce a new ListOfNumbers.

Hint: Review the first two videos of Lecture 14: Built-in structures and follow the template process-lon developed there.

Exercise 2. Design a function product that takes a ListOfNumbers and multiplies the numbers together.

Hint: Review the first two videos of Lecture 14: Built-in structures and follow the template process-lon developed there.

- go to lectures - do problem sets REALLY early - work with others

For the rest of this page, you don’t need to submit anything. Come to class!

Exercise 3. Recall that we designed a function in class that doubles every number in a ListOfNumbers. Compare that function and triple-numbers: How are they similar? How are they different?

Exercise 4. Recall that we designed a function in class that sums up a ListOfNumbers. Compare that function and product: How are they similar? How are they different?

Optional: Read Chapters 14 and 15 of the textbook.
