Presentation Transcript
course topics covered
Course topics covered
  • Algorithms:
    • Correctness: output, P/Q
    • Efficiency: time complexity; best, worst (avg harder)
    • Basic operations: search (1 element), traverse, sort
    • Iteration versus recursion; tail/linear recursion
    • C++ programming vs Java (exceptions, I/O, pointers)
  • Data structures:
    • arrays, matrices, lists, queues, stacks, trees, hash tables, graphs
    • advanced: graphs, NP-completeness
  • Relationship to other CS courses:
    • Theory: advanced algorithms, Automata, Computability
    • Systems: Compilers, Search engines, DB systems,
homeworks 60
Homeworks=60%
  • 6 HWs as planned; always challenging
  • Students with very low grades had 2nd opportunity; 1st time
  • No HW7: Due to most having issues.
  • 6306 final presentation: even ps id functional arithmetic (HW4), odd ps id sorting (HW6)
final exam
Final Exam
  • Two choices:
    • Take home, long answer. Weight: Final=10%, midterm=30%; posted tomorrow
    • Official date (Dec/13), short answer. Final=20%, midterm=20%
  • Most students should agree (vote) about take home exam. Otherwise, final remains as scheduled.
course evaluations
Course evaluations
  • Learning: C++ programming, understand CS theory via programming
  • Lecture. Book/slides: too easy?, Board: challenge for instructor
  • Grade: undergrad. challenging, true measure of what you know?
  • Bottom line: Ranking vs other instructors
  • Feedback, future students, permanent: http://www.ratemyprofessors.com
