(2) Hands-on experience developing business-oriented applications using Microsoft spreadsheet software (Excel). (3) Introduction to basic computer programming concepts. Course Description: The curriculum consists of three subject areas: Technology & Computer Concepts, MS-Excel, and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). The only way to effectively master both MS-Excel and programming in VBA is through actual practice working on the computer. In order to succeed in this class, you will need to do the following : : attend lectures, read the assignments. (2) MS-Excel : attend lectures, complete (on the computer!) the Tutorial exercises (in the New Perspectives on Microsoft Office Excel 2007 ) plus submit the homework assignments (from the Casegrader: Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Casebook with Autograding Technology ). (3) VBA (Visual Basic for Applications): attend lectures, complete (on the computer!) the Tutorial exercises in the book. Assessment Exams : Three exams will be given during the semester. The first two exams are worth 100 points each; the third is a ½ hour exam worth 60 points. There will be no exam review in class. At the end of some classes, I will identify the Key Terms you should know for the exam on that material. Make-up exams will be given during the final exam period for any student with an appropriate, documented excuse for missing one of the three exams. The exams are closed book, no notes, etc. Calculators, Translators and cell phones are not allowed at exams. Anyone caught cheating on an exam will automatically fail the course. Homework Assignments: Twelve (12) Excel/VBA homework problems have been assigned. Each of these homework assignments are worth 20 points for a total possibility of earning 240 points. Completion of each assignment on the computer will help you learn the course material; they are meant to be individual, not ‘group’ efforts. Instructions for completing the Homework assignments are included at the end of the syllabus; posted on Blackboard are the TA Tips for ITM 215 Homework Cases. Your homework assignments must be submitted on-line; Homework Cases 1-4 are due 11:59 PM on
