Course Syllabus -- Spring 1998
Professor: J. Lynch
Office: 325 Science Center
Office Hours: M,W 11:00-12:00 noon; T,Th 9:15-11:00
Text: Data Structures and Algorithm Analysis in
C++ by Mark Allen Weiss
Syllabus: We will attempt to cover Chapters 1-9 in the
text. If time permits we will study selected topics from Chapters
10 & 11.
Exams and final will be open book and notes: you may use any information
source you like except another human. The questions will be based
on assigned exercises (mostly from the text). These exercises are
not to be turned in, but you are strongly advised to do them, because
that is the best way to prepare for the tests. Some class time will
be spent discussing the exercises.
- Three hourly exams: 45%
- Final: 20%
- Homework: 35%
- Hourly exam dates:
Thursday, February 19, in class
Thursday, March 26, in class
Thursday, April 23, in class
The homework will consist of programming projects, to be done
on an individual basis.
All work in this course should be individual effort.
It is perfectly fine (and even encouraged) to discuss the programming
projects with me or other students, but the work should be your
own . A first time or minor infraction of this policy on a
homework assignment will be penalized by a grade of 0 for that
assignment. Repeated or flagrant violations will result in a grade
of F for the course. Any violation of this policy on an exam will
result in a grade of F for the course.
