Course End and EvaluationFall 2011

COSC2320

COSC6306


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
