Each class meeting will begin from a lecture that will cover material
from one chapter of the textbook. All slides for the lectures will be
posted on class website before the beginning of the class. LABS
will begin right after the lecture. The students who did not complete their lab
assignments in class are supposed to finish them on their own at home
or in any computer lab. Lab assistants are available in SCC800. (Visit http://csc.csudh.edu/labs for lab hours.) If you experience a hardware or
software problem or the printer is out of paper inform me or a lab assistant.
During the labs the students will
acquire practical skills and hands-on experience with using popular
application programs. In particular, the students will learn how to:
use Windows 7 operating system and its utilities
create, edit, and manage files and directories
create, edit, and format professionally looking documents under MS Word
spreadsheets to carry on complicated calculations (like mortgage
payments scenarios) "with a click of a button" under MS Excel
create and edit
professionally looking web pages (like resumes or personal portfolios)
in HTML format that can be posted on the Internet
use databases to
store, update and retrieve large amount of data, as well as extract
useful information from that data under MS Access with SQL; this may be
particularly useful for small business applications
effortlessly solve and visualize complicated problems from your Math classes.
and more, like - for instance -
how to record one's own music
how to turn amateur video clips into a movielike this one:
HOMEWORK will be assigned weekly. The formats of submissions and the due dates will be posted inHomework.
TESTS11 tests and 12 quizzes will be administrated
during semester. The tests
will be given at the end of each Wednesday/Thursday's class (unless noted otherwise) and cover
material discussed in the entire week.Each test requires one scantron form 882-Ethat you are required to purchase and bring with you to class.
COMPREHENSIVE EXAM will cover the material discussed in
class and assigned as readings, including the contents and the links in the Lecture
Notes. This exam requires one scantron form 882-Ethat you are required to purchase and bring with you to class.
GRADING The following elements contribute to the total score.
Other grades (e.g. incomplete) will be assigned in cases specified by the university regulations.
PRESENCE is expected and required
regardless whether the roll is called or not. Students who are absent
or late during any class are responsible for the material they missed
and are likely to lose credit on quizzes and tests.
ASSIGNMENTS In order to earn credit, homework assignments must be
submitted no later than at the begining of class on the day they are due. They must be
100% individual work by the student who claims credit for them. No
copying from the Internet, textbooks, or work of others and no group
collaboration is allowed.
POLICY No make-ups will be given. If you expect that you may be late in class
then you are supposed to study the material scheduled for that class on
your own before you come to the class. See the Syllabus for the schedule of material coverage and for your studying responsibilities.
1. A USB flash memory (or similar
removable memory compatible with class computers)
3. Scantron forms 882-E for tests, and final examination.
You are responsible for your supplies.
CLASSROOM DECORUM Student conduct in class is expected to be respectful and appropriate and not disruptive to the learning environment.
Inappropriate or disruptive conduct
includes, but is not limited to, coming to class late, leaving class
early, talking to other students or walking in front of the classroom
while the professor is lecturing, talking on cell phones, texting or
using Skype during class, being rude and disrespectful to the
instructor or fellow students, reading non-class materials (newspaper,
magazines, etc. on line or hard copy) while in class and sleeping.
DEVICES NOT ALLOWED IN CLASS: cellular
telephones, CD players, radios, iPods, and similar devices are to be
turned off while in class. No exceptions.
DRESS CODEPlease, dress appropriately for a university class. Tank-tops are not allowed.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Students
are reminded of the
university policy with regard to scholastic honesty. In this class,
submission for credit of any assignment, program, test, or examination
not the student's original work or contains portions of someone else's
work without being clearly and specifically identified as such, as well
as cheating on tests or examination, are violations that will
automatically yield zero credit for the submitted work and may also result in an F grade in
the course or in university disciplinary action, or both.
Academic Inegrity policies are listed in the Catalog. You are supposed
to know what they are, including definitions of cheating, plagiarism,
and dishonesty. A link below has been provided for your conveninece:
STUDENT ACADEMIC APPEALS PROCESSAuthority
and responsibility for assigning grades to students rests with the
faculty. A grade appeal is permitted when a student can show clear
evidence that a grade was contrary to procedures as specified in the
course syllabus, was based on prejudice, was capricious, or was the
result of computational or clerical error. The presumption is that the
grades assigned are correct until there is a clear demonstration
otherwise. The burden of proof is heavy, and it rests with the student
who is appealing.
ADA STATEMENT Students
with disabilities who believe they may need an academic adjustment in
this class are encouraged to contact Disabled Student Services as soon
as possible in order to receive the adjustement they are entitled to.
