Intro to OpenGL: Forward
Using whatever help you need (Hangout with another student, web tutorials, etc), write the necessary shaders and edit the basic application provided to render three triangles in this pattern and colors:
Start with the basic OpenGL application provided at hg clone http://hg.copyleftgames.org/intro_opengl and edit it as you need. This application is OpenGL ES 2.0 based and should open a blank window on Linux systems.
When you've done, commit your work, type hg bundle intro.hg to bundle up your changes, and upload the resulting bundle file (intro.hg) to the task.
