This paper describes a set of five programming projects in an undergraduate Operating Systems course. The problems are designed to reinforce the fundamental concepts that are discussed in most operating systems textbooks. Students are required to write programs that will simulate the behavior of the process management, process synchronization, memory management, and storage management components of an operating system.
