Introduction to Programming

  • R. Paul Mihail, instructor

Laptop Policies
  • Lecture
    • Studies show most students with laptops open in front of them are NOT paying attention to the lecture
    • IF you insist on using a laptop in lecture, you MUST sit in the very BACK row of the classroom, so that you distract only yourself and not other students
  • Lab
    • There are sufficient computers in each lab for every student
    • You can use your own laptop if you wish
textbook and supplies
Textbook and Supplies
  • Students are responsible for material in chapters that are listed in schedule and covered in lectures
  • Lecture tests are closed note, closed book
  • Lab tests are open note, open book
for attendance on one 3x5 card
For Attendance – on one 3x5 card
  • Write your NAME
  • Write the DATE
  • Write your SECTION
  • AND...
goals write them down
GOALS - write them down
  • What are your goals for this class? That is, what do you want to learn?
  • How much time do you expect to spend on this class OUTSIDE of lecture and lab time?
goals activity continued
Goals Activity - continued
  • SHARE your list with a neighbor and ADD to it if you like
  • COMPARE your list with the one from the syllabus
  • Turn in your card at the end of class by putting it in the envelope with your section number
and on the back of the card describe
And on the back of the card, describe
  • What is the most complicated thing you have done with a computer? or
  • What have you done with a computer that you are most proud of?
  • We are trying to tell what level of experience you have with computers.
the goals of the class are
The goals of the class are
  • To acquire an understanding of computer architecture and data representations (variables, representation of numbers and character strings)
  • To learn basic algorithmic problem-solving techniques (decision structures, loops, functions)
  • To be able to use and understand classes
  • To be able to design, document, implement and test solutions to programming problems
experience in programming
Experience in Programming
  • This class assumes NO experience in programming
  • It does assume some experience with computers and Windows
    • copying files, printing
    • navigating paths
  • If you HAVE a lot of programming experience, have you considered the BYPASS exam?
your grade is based on
Your Grade is Based on:
  • Lecture Attendance 5%
  • Lab Attendance and Assignments 10%
  • Programming Assignments 35%
  • Midterm exam    20%
  • Two Lab Exams 10%
  • Final Exam (Comprehensive) 20%
  • Required at All Lectures
    • taken at random by 3x5 cards, cooperative activities
  • Required at All Lab sessions
    • don’t get credit for team submission if not there
  • only "UK excuses" accepted
    • death in family, illness, school trips, religious holidays
    • Give me your excuse documentation
class locations
Class Locations
  • Lecture – FPAT 267
  • Lab – RGAN 103
  • Office Hours
    • RGAN 104 MWF 10:15 to 11:15 – after lecture
due dates times
Due Dates/Times
  • Labs – individual work due the day before lab session by email, then team work submitted by end of the day of lab session
  • Labs are NOT accepted after that!
  • Programs – submit electronically
  • Programs have a late penalty of 10% of grade for every school day late, up to 5 calendar days
plagiarism cheating
Plagiarism / Cheating
  • “Getting an unfair academic advantage"
    • using other people's code as your own
    • attempt to make code appear to work when it does not
  • NO assistance from someone else on Lab or Lecture tests
  • Only talk in GENERAL TERMS about program assignments, not specifics
  • Do NOT "work together" on a program
cheating cont d
Cheating, cont'd
  • Do NOT show your source code to any other student - Protect your source code!
  • If you talk to anyone outside the class, do not let anyone "inject code" into your program! YOU are the one writing it!
  • Penalties START with a zero on the assignment and a LETTER in your permanent file! UK Policy is followed
cooperative work
Cooperative Work

On the other hand!

  • “Talk to your neighbor” or cooperative activities in lectures
  • Lab assignments – you will have lab partners and turn in work with them
your magic excuse
Your “Magic Excuse”
  • Everybody has one and only one
  • Only works on programs, not labs!
  • Gives you 24-hour extension of deadline

With no documented excuse

  • If you don’t use it during the semester, good for 10 bonus points on final exam
  • To use it, see the syllabus – must let TA or Dr. Keen know

  • Letters are not retroactive!
  • We can arrange both lecture and lab tests to be accommodated
