With the terminal you can create, copy, move, and delete files and directories.  The following are the most important commands to do this.
* cd - change directory
* mkdir - make a new directory
* ls - list directory contents
* cp - copy files
* rm - remove files (be careful, there is no recycle bin or trash - once you delete, it's gone)
* rmdir - remove directory
* nano - simple text editor
And here is a transcript of the use of these commands on the CS server.
cs299@cs:~> pwd
cs299@cs:~> mkdir new-dir1
cs299@cs:~> mkdir new-dir2
cs299@cs:~> nano hello.txt
cs299@cs:~> ls
bin/  hello.txt  new-dir1/  new-dir2/  proto/
cs299@cs:~> cp hello.txt new-dir1
cs299@cs:~> cp hello.txt new-dir2/hello2.txt
cs299@cs:~> ls new-dir1
cs299@cs:~> ls new-dir2
cs299@cs:~> mv new-dir2 new-dir3
cs299@cs:~> ls
bin/  hello.txt  new-dir1/  new-dir3/  proto/
cs299@cs:~> rm hello.txt
cs299@cs:~> ls
bin/  new-dir1/  new-dir3/  proto/
cs299@cs:~> rmdir new-dir3
rmdir: failed to remove 'new-dir3': Directory not empty
cs299@cs:~> rm new-dir3/hello2.txt
cs299@cs:~> rmdir new-dir3
cs299@cs:~> ls
