Unformatted text preview: Administration Computers Software http://www.cs.sfu.ca/CC/120/johnwill/ John Edgar 3 Come to class Read ahead Attend the labs And ask questions if you need help Complete the assignments You get marks for them, and You learn to program by programming Ask questions Programming in C Problem solving, fundamental algorithms Elementary data structures Software design Algorithms John Edgar 5 Assignments and Labs 30% Midterm exam in class 25% Final exam 45% John Edgar 7 Labs are every week Except for the first week Labs are assessed 1% for each lab But they are not exams we want you to learn how to program so ask for help! Some labs will be open labs to get help with assignments There will be a number of programming assignments, probably 4 They must be submitted on the Computing Science submission server They must be completed on your own unless specified otherwise by the instructor (me) Read the policy Section 4.1.2 (e) forbids Cheating in assignments, projects, examinations or other forms of evaluation by: i. using, or attempting to use, another students answers; ii. providing answers to other students; iii. failing to take reasonable measures to protect answers from use by other students; or iv. in the case of students who study together, submitting identical or virtually identical assignments for evaluation unless permitted by the course Instructor or supervisor. It's cheating Because we may catch you and then You get zero on your assignment You get a letter on your file And if you keep doing it You get chucked out of SFU You won't learn how to program in C Because you won't learn how to program in C you are far more likely to fail the final exam And Computing Science Computers come in many shapes and sizes Desktops Laptops Phones Specialized systems Brakes Toasters It's probably more useful to look at some characteristics of (modern) computers Can do basic arithmetic (+, -, *, /) Can perform these arithmetical operations very fast Represents data in binary Has a large main memory that can efficiently store and retrieve data Can accept input and produce output Can be programmed Stores programs in main memory One of the characteristics of the Von Neumann architecture John Edgar 14...
