An introduction to the principles, design, security, and use of database management systems in business, with an emphasis on the relational model; database constraints, domain constraints, database user management; database definition, manipulation and control using SQL. Teaching Methods, Preparation, Homework, Exams, and Project: Teaching methods : This course consists of lecture, computer labs, assignments from the text and lab, role- playing, and a semester-long project. The textbook will provide the main source of information. The class lecture will be based on the textbook topics and supplemented by my database design experiences while working at Hewlett-Packard. Cellphones answered in class without prior approval will reduce your final grade by 10%. Preparation : Students are responsible for having read and being prepared to discuss text material prior to class. Homework : All homework is to be done individually and is due at the START of class one week after it is assigned as indicated on the semester schedule located above (unless otherwise indicated in class). Homework solutions will be posted online a day or two after they are due in class. Homework turned in after solutions are posted will receive zero credit . There is no way to make up missed homework assignments; do not ask. Special comment about homework : It is my experience that the single most common reason for a lowered grade is failure to complete one or more homework assignments. Each homework assignment is worth 20 points out of a total of 500 semester points. If you fail to turn in one homework assignment, your grade will immediately drop approximately one “plus/minus” grade division (e.g., from a “B” to a “B-”). If you fail to turn in two homework assignments, your grade will immediately drop approximately two “plus/minus” grade divisions, and so forth. Note that, as stated above,

    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.
