Course Description:
This course provides an overview of database system concepts. The course deals with file organization methods, database models, data integrity and security, and database administration issues. The student will be introduced to application program development in a database environment with emphasis on setting up, modifying, and querying a database. PREREQUISITE: CS 219. 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

Welcome to Database Management  (CS 360) on-line! This course focuses on one of the hottest topics in the computer technology area today, the repositing and utilization of data, the fuel of the information economy and age. This ubiquitous technology is pervasive in the world today in virtually some part of every business activity, on-line encounter, and computer development effort.  This course is intended to provide the student with a thorough understanding of the concepts involved in database development, data modeling, database design, and implementation. The student will also be exposed to concepts involved in the operations and maintenance of a database including client server database architectures, processing standards, and data administration. The relational model will be used as the main structural data model accompanied by an introduction to Structured Query Language (SQL). Each week we will focus on the various aspects of database technology from the basic terms of the discipline, through data modeling, to the concepts utilized in the physical design and implementation of a database. The course will be conducted through a combination of reading assignments, with associated topical weekly discussion questions which are posted on the appropriate public discussion threads, weekly homework assignments and weekly internet research assignments which are submitted to the appropriate private drop boxes, and a proctored comprehensive final exam. This course will build on the global and multinational aspects of databasing including the international nature and accessibility of information, and the de facto standardization of technology both for a vendor provided database management system (DBMS) and language, the structured query language (SQL).

Grading:

 

Overall Course Grading

  • The exam will count 25% of your total grade. You will know in advance the standards for each assignment. My goal is to give you prompt, clear, and useful feedback to help you become a better writer and thinker. You will be able to track your average exactly throughout the course. Each student is responsible for:
    • Completing Weekly Reading Assignments .
    • Completing Weekly assigned Activities (Questions, Internet Research, and Homework), and submitting them to the instructor.
    • Participating in the weekly on-line Discussion.
    • Completing a Final Proctored Examination.

Assignments % of Grade

    • Weekly Tasks (8) 75%

(100 points each for the first 7 weeks and 50 points for week 8)

(Weekly Tasks consist of Discussion Participation and weekly Activities [Internet Research, Questions, and Homework Problems])

    • Proctored Final Examination (250 points) 25%

Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found at the Park University Web Site. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first weeks of class so that you can send your requested proctor to me for approval. Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade. 

Course Grading Scale - the total of all points received (total of all weekly assignments and final exam) will determine the student's letter grade as follows:

A =

90- 100%

B =

80-89%

C =

70-79%

D =

60-69%

F =

< 60%

Late Submission of Course Materials:

Submission of Late Work: There is a late submission penalty of 25% of the assignment value for each day late - see the course FAQs for more information on this policy.

Make-up Work: Because solutions to most of the assignments are published weekly along with submission critiques in order to provide rapid feedback, the nature of this course does not lend itself to any make-up work.

Late Submission of Course Materials:

Any assignment turned in after the due date is penalized 25% for each day late (this is measured by when I can access your product electronically, readable and properly formatted). Example: say you earned 80% on an assignment, but turned it in one day late. Your score would only be 60% since you are penalized for being late (25% of 80 points = 20 points, and 80 points - 20 points = 60 points). After an assignment is late over four days, no points would be left due to the late penalty, so it does no good to submit the assignment in this situation instead focus on any remaining assignments. Why do I do this? Because it is the only way to administer a course like this with such as short duration adhering to the University rules for the rapid feedback and posting of solutions so that the class can stay on schedule. If schedule is going to be a problem due to work or personal situations, contact me to get permission to complete your assignments early to avoid a late penalty. Here is a key point regarding this class: Absolutely NO INCOMPLETES are allowed unless there is documented proof of a medical emergency. I DO NOT provide any sort of "make-up" or "additional assignments" for missed work or poor performance, so keep up with the course and give every assignment your best. I do not accept late work without a penalty; so if schedule is going to be a problem due to work or personal situations, get permission to complete your assignments early. If you suspect you will be unable to complete the course-work, drop the class before the drop period expires.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Professors are required to keep attendance records and report absences throughout the term. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands including temporary duty. The student is responsible for completing all assigned work.  Any student failing to attend class for two consecutive weeks, without an approved excuse from their instructor, will be administratively withdrawn and notified via email that you have been withdrawn and a grade of "WH" will be recorded. An attendance report of "P" (present) will be recorded for students who have logged in to the Online classroom at least once during each week of the term.  PLEASE NOTE:  Recording of attendance is not equivalent to participation.  Participation grades will be assigned by each individual instructor according to the criteria in the Grading Policy section of the syllabus. For more details on Park University on page 100 of the Park University Undergraduate Catalog or page 14 of the Park University Graduate Catalog. Students are expected to spend a substantial amount of time online and offline each week including but not limited to responding to the weekly conference discussions, sending/receiving Email, reading and viewing online lectures, completing online quizzes and tests, and conducting research over the World Wide Web.  A rule of thumb is that you should spend a minimum of approximately 4-5 hours per week online reviewing course content, and engaging in the conference discussion and an additional 4-6 hours per week on readings, preparing assignments, or examinations.

Course Topic/Dates/Assignments:

 

Readings, Overview, and Weekly Activities  

Week 1: Introduction to Databasing and Query By Example (QBE)

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 1, 2, (from our textbook, Eighth Edition) and the publisher’s student resources web site (at http://wps.prenhall.com/bp_hoffer_mdm_8/0,12126,3390077-,00.html - select the tab labeled “Seventh Edition QBE Resources” located on the left side of the screen) 7th Edition, Chapter 2 QBE material (pp. 68 - 70) and 7th Edition, Chapter 9 QBE material (pp. 375 – 384). 
  •  Overview: During Week 1, we begin with an overview of the course covering the content and administration of the course. Database concepts and terms are introduced, as well as a brief history of database models used over the last 30 years. In Chapter 2, we briefly cover the steps taken in a database development and compare them with the steps for a typical software development effort. We see our first database application toward the end of Chapter 2 for the Pine Valley Furniture Company, which includes examples of database tables implemented in Microsoft (MS) Access (a popular PC based Database Management System [DBMS]). An example of the Graphical User Interface (GUI) for MS Access is shown on the publisher’s student resources web site (at http://wps.prenhall.com/bp_hoffer_mdm_8/0,12126,3390077-,00.html - select the tab labeled “Seventh Edition QBE Resources” located on the left side of the screen). This example under links for the 7th Edition, Chapter 2 QBE material (pp. 68 – 70, Figures 2-15, 2-16 and 2-17) and Chapter 9 QBE material (pp. 375 – 384, Figures 9 -10, 9-11, 9-12, 9-13, 9-14, 9-15, 9-16 and 9-17) provides a detailed look at a vendor’s implementation of Query By Example (QBE) as a GUI based interface to a relational database. The use of MS Access in this detailed example show the utility of this approach to ad hoc querying for a vendor produced DBMS.  
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Question(s).

Week 2: Data Modeling/Entity-Relationship Diagrams

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 3, 4, and Appendix A.
  • Overview: During Week 2, we'll introduce data modeling constructs by investigating both the Entity-Relation (E-R) model (for a general database application) in Chapter 3, and the Enhanced Entity-Relationship (EER) model which provides for supertype and subtype entities to help simplify many data models with similar attributes in Chapter 4. We will see that E-R diagrams provide for an efficient graphical tool to document a database data model. Examples of notation conventions and their presentation in common software tools are illustrated in Appendix A. The concept of 'business rules' in the context of database applications is presented in both Chapters 3 and 4.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Homework Problems.

 Week 3: Logical Database Design/Relational Model/Normalization

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapter 5.
  • Overview: During Week 3, Chapter 5 provides the basis of completing the logical data model by transitioning the E-R model to a relational model through the normalization process. Normalization is explored in detail to promote understanding of the relational database model.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Homework Problems.

Week 4: Structured Query Language (SQL)

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 7 and 8.
  • Overview: During Week 4, Chapters 7 and 8 introduce the structural Query Language (SQL) as the direct database interface for relational databases. The data definition language (DDL) and data control language (DCL) are introduced, and the data manipulation language (DML) is explored in more detail so that the student is conversant in querying in SQL. Chapter 8 ends with a discussion of useful current and proposed programming constructs like triggers and procedures, and illustrates ways SQL can be integrated with other programming languages.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Homework Problems.

Week 5: Physical Database Design/Client-Server Architectures/Distributed Databases   

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 6, 9, 10, and 13 (from our textbook, Eighth Edition, only an initial part of Chapter 13 is present in our text), and read the rest of Chapter 13 on the publisher’s student resources web site at http://wps.prenhall.com/bp_hoffer_mdm_8/0,12126,3390077-,00.html - select the tab labeled “Chapters 13 – 15” located on the left side of the screen. Then select from among the links to navigate to Chapters 13, 14 or 15. The complete version of Chapters 13, 14, and 15 are found through these links.Text: Read Chapters 6, 9 (except 375-384), 10, and 13.
  • Overview:  During Week 5, we shift from logical modeling involving data and its structure constrained by business rules to physical modeling where we focus on how we will implement the database. In Chapter 6, look at providing estimates of permanent and random access memory sizes, and estimates of performance response times for typical database activities. We also discuss ways of increasing response time performance. Chapter 9 continues physical database design by considering the network environment in which the database will be implemented. The first consideration here is the type of architecture (i.e. client/server) in which to host the database. Various client/server architectures are examined ranging from file servers to the popular two and three tier designs. Chapter 9 ends with a discussion of popular application interfaces for databases. Chapter 10 discusses the web based popular alternative to the client/server architectures of Chapter 9 for hosting databases. Issues, such as security, and applications examples are provided for the internet environment associated with databases. Chapter 13 continues exploring the database network environment design by covering the aspect of distributed databases. The advantages gained by partitioning the tables in a large relational database are weighed against the networked complexity of data synchronization. Topics of data integrity, quality, concurrence, replication, committing changes, and back-up are introduced.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Internet Research.

 Week 6: Data and Database Administration/Data Warehousing

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 11 and 12.
  • Overview:  During Week 6, Chapter 12 examines the function of data stewardship and its two components, data administration (DA) and database administration (DBA). The programmatic tasks associated with designing and maintaining a database such as determining requirements for data security, privileges of uses, data update timing, back-up schedules, etc. are appropriately handled by a data user representative, the data administrator. The DBMS tasks associated with implementing and operating a database such as installing a DBMS, upgrading software, loading/importing data, implementing security policy, performing back-ups, etc. are appropriately performed by a DBA. Additionally, the topics of database deadlocking, and recovery are covered. Chapter 11 examines the newest databasing concept, data warehousing. The need for this structure, and its attendant advantages are covered in exploring the star schema architecture. We continue the discussion of data warehousing by introducing the concept of data marts, and exploring the topics of data cleansing and reconciliation, and data mining and visualization.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see topics for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Question(s).

 Week 7: Object Oriented Approach to Databasing  

  • Readings: Text: Read Chapters 14 and 15 in our textbook (only an initial part of each chapter is present in our textbook), and read the remaining part of Chapters 14, and 15 on the publisher’s student resources web site at  (http://wps.prenhall.com/bp_hoffer_mdm_8/0,12126,3390077-,00.html ) - select the tab labeled “Chapters 13 – 15” located on the left side of the screen. Then select from among the links to navigate to Chapters 13, 14 or 15. The complete version of Chapters 13, 14, and 15 are found through these links.
  • Overview: During Week 7, Chapter 14 introduces the database model of the future, the object-oriented (OO) model. We compare the OO model with models covered earlier in course. We use the material in Chapter 15 to provide examples of an OO database.
  • Class Activities/Weekly Tasks (see Conference Threads for details): Discussion Topic Thread Participation and Activity Internet Research.

Week 8: Object - Relational Databases and Final Proctored Exam  

  • Readings: Appendix D.
  • Overview: Appendix D introduces the Object-Relational database as a hybrid for those implementations needing operational characteristics of both types of databases. The student will take a timed and proctored final exam. It is the student’s responsibility to schedule the proctored exam with the appropriate official proctor, and the student is encouraged to do so at the earliest opportunity. The completed exams are due to me by Friday of the eighth week of the term at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. This will be a timed closed book and closed notes comprehensive proctored exam covering all material presented up to and through week seven.
