    3. Evaluation • 9 Homework (2% each = 18%) • weekly, paper printouts in dropbox • Tests (first, 15%; second, 20%) • in class, approx. 60 minutes long • Final Exam (47%) • All multiple choice: 100 M/C questions with answers placed on Scantron form • Content: all readings in Topics

    4. How to do well in this course • do all the homework exercises! • read the book and study the notes • attend lectures • seek help if confused; ask questions • write both tests

    5. Video Video: The Machine that Changed the world Primary Website: http://waxy.org/2008/06/the_machine_that_changed_the_world See “Week-01.1-video.pdf” for more information

    6. A short and condensed history of computingPart I: Ancient history Up to 1930

    7. Origins of digital computers • Abacus • First uses 2,000+ years ago • Can count, add, subtract, multiply, divide, square root, cubic root • In decimal or hexadecimal

    8. Early calculating machines • Pascaline (1642) • Mechanical adder with automatic carry mechanism

    9. The Jacquard Loom • Jacquard Loom (1804)

    10. Charles Babbage (1791-1871) • Considered as the father of the computer • Designed mechanical computing machines: the difference engine and the analytical engine • Mechanical hand or steam powered for computations, but very complex and hard to build & use

    11. Babbage’s difference engine

    12. Babbage’s analytical engine • First mechanical general-purpose computer • ALU, control flow, integrated memory! • Programmed through punch cards • Never finished

    13. World’s first programmer • Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) • Lord Byron’s daughter • Wrote the first algorithm intended for a general-purpose computer (Babbage’s analytical engine)

    14. 1880-1901 The birth of the modern mechanical calculator

    15. The Hollerith tabulator • Built to tabulate the 1890 US census • Electrical contacts though punch cards used to activate relays to count and sort results

    16. Early pocket calculators
