Elena Machkasova's animation assignment

Elena Machkasova has been teaching at the University of Minnesota Morris, using How to Design Programs, 2nd Edition for several years. The following is taken from her Fall 2013 course CSci 1301: Problem Solving and Algorithm Development (one of two choices for a "first programming course" at UMM).

The semester started on August 28. The first real "programming" lab assignment, due September 16, was this: write an animated cartoon with a background image, at least four moving shapes, and good programming style (including named constants, helper functions, etc.) After all the animations were turned in, the students voted for their favorites, and here are the results.

4th place source code
5th place source code
and the rest of them here.
