Syllabus The course syllabus establishes course policies on grading, attendance, and exams. The syllabus should be read in detail at beginning semester.
Lectures This is the main knowledge resource for the course. Lectures are in the form of a slide show with an accompanying narrative. (Click "Narrative on" to see the narrative. Click "Frames[Windows]" to toggle between displaying the narrative in a separate frame or a separate resizable window.) Please report bugs/corrections in the appropriate Canvas discussion forum. Note: The lecture notes are undergoing revision during the semester.
Calendar The course calendar: coverage, assignments, lecture notes all released here.
Assignments Assignments are intended to be total learning experiences, not merely exercises in programming. The assignment documents in particular are used to elaborate on topics and introduce new ones. The content of assignments is of equal importance with the lecture notes. Assignments will be released through the calendar. Note that assignment deadlines will be enforced and that successful completion of most assignments requires starting at least two weeks in advance of the deadline. Assignments will be assessed using the policy described here. We expect polished, thoughtfully prepared work and will assess accordingly. Note that a work log is expected for each programming assignment.
Canvas The FSU/Canvas Portal, where you will find this course. The course site is the main communication resource for the class. Here you can get help, talk to other students, retrieve your grades, and generally keep up with course news and announcements.
Students helping students Policy on students helping students. PLEASE NOTE: students may help other students in a Canvas forum or a designated classroom. Any other form of help, whether using email or an external facility such as "slack", is a violation of the code of conduct. READ THE DOCUMENT && (FOLLOW THE RULES || FACE THE CONSEQUENCES).
