ACM JETT AP Computer Science Workshop at Duke

Workshop II

The College Board thinks that some of the materials we used for face-to-face teaching purposes as part of this workshop should not be online. Specifically, we developed Java versions of C++ free-response questions from AP exams. We believe that these derivative works do not infringe the College Board copyright. However, the copyright law regarding derivative works isn't clear, and who needs the College Board pestering them? We don't. To avoid dealing with the College Board, who should have better things to do than pestering teachers who have developed materials that encourage folks to take exams they administer, we have "removed" the workshop material from the web. Of course you may be able to use Google's cache of the material. We don't recommend using "The Java class College represents information about a college" as a Google query.

The workshop materials are now protected by a login/password. You can request the login if you're a teacher wishing to use these materials for face-to-face teaching purposes. Send email to OLA at DUKE dot EDU.
