6.00: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Problem Set 1 Handed out: Tuesday, September 9, 2008. Due: 11:59pm, Friday, September 12, 2008 . Introduction This problem set will introduce you to using control flow in Python and formulating a computational solution to a problem. In this problem set, you will design and write a simple Python program, test it, and hand it in. Be sure to read this problem set thoroughly, especially the sections of Collaboration and the Handin Procedure. Collaboration You may work with other students. However, each student should write up and hand in his or her assignment separately. Be sure to indicate with whom you have worked. For further detail, please review the collaboration policy as stated in the syllabus. Computing Prime Numbers A common type of computation is the generate-and-test method, in which one systematically generates potential solutions to a problem, and then applies a sequence of one or more tests to determine if the proposed solution is in fact valid. While one could in principle (and under some
