Required Texts: (bring your own copy to every class – no sharing)

Internet & World Wide Web: How to Program, Third Edition, H. M. Deitel, P. J. Deitel, T. R. Nieto; Prentice Hall, 2004.

Absences:

Students are responsible for obtaining any material missed due to an absence. Additionally, students must ensure that their work is submitted by the deadline regardless of other commitments, i.e. duty, sick call, movement orders. Should bona fide emergencies arise, it is the responsibility of the student to coordinate with the instructor IN ADVANCE (emergency leave, hospitalization, SIR, etc.).

Honor:

You may collaborate on laboratory assignments to the following extent:  collaborative conversations with regard to syntax, strategies and methods for accomplishing the goal of the labs are encouraged, however design and implementation must be the work of the individual student handing in the final product. Sharing or copying of code is never permitted.  In addition, you must identify all those that you collaborate with on your assignment cover sheet.  Consult your instructor if you need further clarification.

 

Exams will be open book/notes.  Expect frequent quizzes on assigned reading. Quizzes may be open or closed book/notes, as announced. No makeup quizzes will be given. All work on exams/quizzes must be your own in accordance with USNAINST 1610.3F, USNAINST 1531.53, and COMPSCIDEPTINST1531C.  These references can be found at http://www.usna.edu/CS/academics/honor.htm.

Extra Instruction:

Extra Instruction (EI) is available and encouraged when your own attempts to understand the subject matter are unsuccessful. However, you must come prepared with specific questions or areas to be discussed (i.e. have read the assigned readings). If you have missed class, get the notes from a classmate. Do not ask or expect to receive EI on material that you have slept through.

 

EI is normally available during weekdays by appointment; see the course web page for hours of non-availability.  Students may also show up at the instructor’s office without appointment, however no expectation of instructor availability should be assumed.   Email questions are also encouraged, though in some cases the reply will request in-person EI as the most effective solution.


Class Conduct

Students are expected to uphold all professional standards while in class. Proper uniforms shall be worn, and proper language shall be used. Sleeping in class is prohibited. If you are experiencing difficulty staying awake at your desk, stand in the back of the room.

 

No food is permitted in the classroom or labs.  Beverages are permitted in closed containers only.

For the final project, teams of students will create a web site.  50% of the project grade will be the instructor’s estimation of the final group’s effort and the other 50% will be based upon the other group members’ estimation of an individual’s teamwork and production.

Exams:

The 6 and 12-week exams will primarily focus on the recent material. The final exam will be comprehensive. If for some reason a make-up exam will be required, inform the instructor at least 1 week in advance.

Late Assignments

Unless otherwise specified, assignments are due promptly at the start of class on the due date.  Assignments will often involve both an electronic and a written submission – both must be accomplished before the assignment is deemed submitted.
