WORK SCHEDULE FOR CS 3750 -- Fall 2001

This schedule is a draft and subject to change. Keep checking the class web space for the latest version.

You will find weekly reading assignments here. The reading assignments set a pace for you. You are supposed to read the entire text in one semester. The pace is adequate to allow you to do that. The pace will also keep you ahead of what I am covering in lecture. In class we will devote some time to discussion of what you are currently reading, but we may have to spend much or most of the time on something else. You should check here each week to see what will be covered in the lecture material, and you should review that material to prepare for the lecture.

Lectures will probably lag behind the reading assignments for most of the semester. At the end of the semester, lectures will skip from topic to topic, and perhaps finally catch up with the reading assignments.

I will synchronize homework assignments pretty well with the assigned reading. In class or office hours, feel free to ask questions related to the current homework.

Before you read a chapter in the book, first read the assigned homework problems for that chapter. As you read the chapter, gather the maximal amount of relevant information to use in your answers to the problems.

CS 3750 Optional FINAL EXAM: The (optional) CS 3750 final exam is scheduled as follows: The final exam will be comprehensive. It will cover content from all three in-term exams. I will try to keep the number of questions small so that everyone has plenty of time for answering.

For purposes of grade calculation, your score on the final will replace your lowest in-term exam score, unless your score on the final is lower than your lowest in-term exam score, in which case your score on the final will have no effect.

If you want to take the exam, send me an e-mail message and tell me so. I will make a copy of the exam for you.
