3/17/10 Who Am I? I am Bob Goodsell. I am an adjunct lecturer. This means that I am not a professor, officially. (But you can call me “professor” if you want!) Because of my expertise in Visual Basic and databases I was hired specifically to teach this class. I have worked for the UM Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) since 2000 as a Visual Basic programmer and database expert.

3/17/10 Lecture Tools I am going to try something new this semester: Lecture Tools. Lecture Tools is a website that was developed here at UM to help to make lectures more interactive and interesting. If you have your laptop with you, please go to CTools for this class and click on the LectureTools link. You should be able to open up this lecture.

If you have a laptop (or maybe even a smart phone?) that you didn’t bring today, please bring it next Monday.

3/17/10 Course Goals The basics of Visual Basic, SQL, and VBA have generally been understood and mastered by most students who have taken this course in the last three years.

3/17/10 Grades The grading scheme is designed to achieve the following: Each student learns as much as possible consistent with a strong effort in a four-credit course. No student should fail as long as he/she makes a good effort. B’s and A’s reflect having done more work more than they reflect having gotten higher scores.
