Learning should not be looked upon as a burden but instead as a lifetime process. Computer Science is ubiquitous so this course will be approached from practical application views. Participation and discussion with peers in and out of the class are encouraged and believed to provide a more joyful learning experience. Isolated systems usually do not learn without an outside influence but require help from time to time in order to gain knowledge. This is evident in all of us as children learning to communicate verbally with the help of our parents. I expect full participation and no unexcused absences. I will present a topic, provide the class with example programs and allow for class participation on the presented material. Homework will be assigned each week. The homework problems and lab assignments will be the basis for the midterm and final exam.

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
The final exam is comprehensive and will cover all material presented in the course. The final grade will be determined based on the following:
Final Exam: 25%
Grading: Letter grades will be based on the following: 90-100 A 80-89 B 70-79 C 60-69 D <59 F (or 3 or more Unexcused Absences)
Late Submission of Course Materials:
The students' performance will be evaluated with labs, homework, midterm, and a cumulative final exam. It is the students' responsibility to coordinate with the instructor for make up of any missed assignments. The maximum attainable score for make-up exams and labs will be reduced by five points per day for each day after the exams or labs are given. I will not except late homework.
