Course Goals:

Class Meetings:

We will meet once per week on Thursdays, typically in a computer lab. There are three computer lab recitation sections as follows: section 11 at period 2 (9:00-9:50 a.m.), section 12 at period 3 (10:00-10:50 a.m.), and section 13 at period 5 (1:00-1:50 p.m.) on Thursdays.

Towards the end of the semester project presentations will take place. When these are scheduled, you will not meet during your computer lab recitation time. Instead, the presentations will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Thursdays in Snell 213.

Please check the posted schedule before class to be sure you know the location of the weekly meeting.

Some of the final project presentations will be scheduled during the evening in the final few weeks of the semester (times will be announced).

Grading Policy:

This is a required course for freshmen majoring in Math or Computer Science. There will be no exams. Your grade will be based on the following: To earn a 4.0, you must give an oral presentation of one of your projects, have good attendance, and do good quality work on your assignments and projects.
