### Course End and EvaluationFall 2011

COSC2320

COSC6306

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%
• 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
• 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
• 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
