Educational Philosophy: 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. 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). Students are expected to be well prepared to discuss the text examples and assignments provided in each chapter. An engaged classroom discussion of these examples and assignments will be part of the basis of the class participation grade.
