Introduction to Computer Programming
In this exercise you will make use of some of the most common
elements of most web pages: hyperlinks and images.
Your goal is to create a web page which highlights
your personal interests, while also demonstrating that you can use
the HTML tags that we have learned so far, including links and images.
Your web page should include the following:
The web page you submit must satisfy all of the conditions above,
but you do not have to have separate items for each of the conditions.
It might be possible for you to satisfy two or more of the conditions
above with just one item.
- Your name, somewhere at the top of the page.
- Title: the page should have an appropriate tab title using
the "TITLE" tag.
- Structure: The document should have appropriate opening and closing
"HTML", "HEAD", and "BODY" tags.
- An appropriate main heading, using the "H1" tag.
- An introduction paragraph giving an overview description of the
rest of the page.
- A link to the web site you visit most.
- A link to the web site folder
where we have been getting assignments
(eg. where did you get this homework assignment?)
- A link to this assignment itself
- A link to the web page you made for the previous assignment
(eg. "AdaL01.html", but with your name, not Ada's).
- A link to Khan Academy.
- A link to the site where you usually get your weather information.
- A link to the site where you usually get daily news,
either local or national.
- A link to your prefered search engine.
- An ordered list of items, such as your favorite classes
(or favorite something).
- An unordered list of ... something (anything).
- An image served from a remote site.
- An image served locally (from the same folder as your HTML file).
See the end of the assignment for instructions regarding the
name of this file.
- An image which has its height set to exactly 247 pixels.
- An image of something you have created, such as a painting
Links must be clearly visible and have appropritate link text
(or in the case of an image which is a link, appropriate
mouseover text using the "title" attribute).
Hidden links won't be counted.
Your web page must have at least the required items listed
above, but it can also have more than just the minimum of
required items listed above.
If you have any questions about the assignment or about the
terminoligy used above then be sure to ask questions before
the due date.
The name of the file for this web page should be your first name,
followed by your last initial, followed by the two digits "02".
The file extension should be ".html".
So, for example, a student by the name of Grace Hopper would create a
file called "GraceH02.html".
To submit your assignment you should print a copy of the source code
file, and print a copy of the resulting "output" (what it looks like
in a browser).
Staple the two together, with the ouput page on top, and put your name
on the top of the first page.
You should also upload a copy of your file to
And you also need to upload copies of any images served "locally" by
your web page.
The names of any images files that goe with your assignment should
also have names constructed from your first and last name and
the digits "02", with the letters "a", "b", "c" etc appended.
The file name extensions can be ".jpg" or ".png" or ".gif".
For example, if Grace Hopper's submission included two image files
they could be named "GraceH02a.jpg" and "GraceH02b.png" (with the
extensions chosen to match the type of image file).
