Passive vs Active Learning Passive learning: learning through reading , hearing & seeing Active learning: learning through saying and doing After 2 weeks, we tend to remember: Passive learning 10% of what we read 20% of what we hear 30% of what we see (i.e. pictures) 50% of what we hear and see Active learning 70% of what we say 90% of what we say and do 7 How to Become an Active Learner Recall prior materials Answer a question Guess the solution first (even guessing wrong will help you to remember the right approach) Work out the next step before you have to read on Think of an application Imagine that you were the professor and think about how you would give a test on the subject material so that key concepts and results will be checked. Summarize a lecture, a set of home work or a lab in your own words concisely. 8 9 Rules No late homework/project submissions accepted! Exams will be closed book. You are only responsible from material covered in the class, homework, and projects. Academic dishonesty will be treated seriously. 10 What Expect to Learn? Key Concepts of Operating Systems Design, Implementation, and Optimization Topics will include: Processes, Threads and Concurrency CPU and I/O Scheduling Memory and Storage Management File System Structures Synchronization and Deadlocks Protection and Security Distributed Computing & Related Issues 11 Introduction 12 What is an Operating System? A program that manages the computer hardware. An intermediary between the computer user and the computer hardware.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
