The official course textbook is Absolute C++, Fifth Edition, by Walter Savitch, Addison Wesley, 2013.
There are other books on C++ available online for free which are suitable for this course and could well be used as a replacement for the official course textbook. If you do not use the textbook, however, you will need to figure out which chapter in your references covers the subject. For example, when we discuss "pointers" this will not likely be in Chapter 10 of another book or even another edition of Savitch.The library has the textbook on reserve which can be found here.
Lectures will present material from the course textbook, supplemented by additional subject matter. You are responsible for all material presented in all lectures.
In discussion sections, your TA will review material covered in the lectures, present subject matter not covered in the lectures, discuss programming projects, and answer questions.
Assignments are due at 9:00 PM on the dates listed below. Late submissions will NOT be accepted and will receive no credit. Your assignment MUST follow the guidelines specified in the general project requirements.
|Assignment2 (3.5%)||Monday, July 14|
|Assignment5 (0%)||(Practice Assignment)|
The midterm will cover material from the lectures and the textbook. The final examination will cover material from the entire course. Missing the final for any reason will result in a final exam score of zero.
Your grade in the course will be determined from your total score, although a final exam score below 40 may subject you to a failing grade regardless of your total score. The total score is determined from the graded materials as follows:
A request for reconsideration of the grading for an item must be made within one week of our sending you your score for that item.
You will not earn points on any of your coursework unless you have signed and turned in the Academic Integrity Agreement.
