We will be using the following book:
Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (2nd edition, 1996, ISBN 0070004846)
Hal Abelson and Jerry Sussman
The Abelson/Sussman book is available online (for free) here. If you like holding a book in your hands, used hard copies are available between $30 and $40. Make sure to get the 2nd edition, published in 1996. Here are links: bigwords, alibris, amazon, bookfinder
There are five categories of work that will be assessed:
- Programming assignments 20%. The assignments are the primary way for developing an understanding of course material. Assignments will lose 10% of their value per day that they are late up to a maximum of 50% off. Assignments are due before class of the day that they are assigned.
- Two mid-semester exams 10% each x 2 = 20%.
- Final exam 30%.
- Term project 25%. A significant part of the class will be an independent implementation project, which you will specify and carry out, primarily over the last month of the semester. We'll start conceptual work on the project earlier than that. I will expect the project to represent a significant work effort.
- Classroom and discussion forum participation 5%.
Collaboration and Academic Integrity Policy
You are welcome to discuss ideas in the class with your peers. However, pair programming or other side-by-side work that involves sharing of code is not allowed. By turning in an assignment, you attest that you have written the new code that it includes. Please be familiar with the university's academic integrity policies: for undergraduates for graduate students
Discussion Group / E-Mail List
We will use Google Groups for class conversation and announcements.
