General course information

The homework will consist of programming assignments. Style counts (that includes using meaningful names and providing sufficient comments in the body of the programs). Assignments must be done on the computer.
There will be two midterms and a final. Your grade will be 40 percent midterms plus 40 percent final plus 20 percent homework.If you plan to continue with computer science courses, you *MUST* get a grade of C or better in this course. No exceptions will be made.

There is a home page for this course available on the world wide web at the following address:

You should use this to obtain assignments and programs done in class. Also, you should get a Unix account from the ITS in order to receive email from me. I will be sending information, hints, help, etc. to everyone in the class via the class mailing list, but first you must subscribe to it (this is an absolute requirement for this class):
