Attendance in lab is mandatory.
You will probably want to bring a flash drive to use for storing your files. You can also email them to yourself or store them in the cloud somewhere, but a flash drive is a good idea for starters.
I have posted some Notes on using Eclipse for Web Development.
Internet and World Wide Web How To Program (5th Edition) by Paul Deitel, Harvey Deitel, and Abbey Deitel (Prentice-Hall, ISBN 978-0132151009) [UR Bookstore | Amazon].
The 5th edition is updated for HTML5, which is A Good Thing. The 4th edition is also ok if you already have it. You'll have to do a little bit of re-mapping in the syllabus, and use online or other sources for any HTML5 specifics.
On the subject of HTML5, I have found the following book useful: Introducing HTML5 (2nd Edition) by Bruce Lawson and Remy Sharp (New Riders Press, ISBN 978-0321784421) [Amazon].
Detailed syllabus (NOTE: subject to change)
Assignments will be given out weekly to complement the material covered in class. Each assignment will have two parts. The first part will be given out in lab on Wednesday. The second part will be made available after class on Thursday. You can work on it up to and including lab on Monday.
Assignments are announced on BlackBoard and also listed in the full list of assignments as they are posted.
Assignments are due in BlackBoard by 11:00PM Monday.
Late assignments will be penalized 10% per day up to a maximum of three days late. Assignments will not be accepted more than three days late.
If you anticipate a problem submitting an assignment on time, contact the instructor or your TA well before the deadline. Please also note the University policy on attendance and illness.
Grades in the course will be calculated as follows:
|Lab Assignments||12 @ 3 1/3% each||40%|
|Exams||2 @ 20% each||40%|
|Quizzes||approx 15 @ 1% each||15%|
Your letter grade will follow the
of Rochester Grading Scheme. Note that the University scheme
average somewhere between C and B. The following table is
an estimate of how the numeric grades will map onto the
|C||Minimum Satisfactory Grade||≥60%|
|D||Minimum Passing Grade||≥50%|
Note that this mapping is subject to change at the sole discretion of the instructor, but is provided as a guideline.
If you have an accommodation from the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, you must contact the instructor as soon as possible to make arrangements for assignments, quizzes, exams, and whatever else might be needed. We are happy to accommodate you, but you have to start the process.
For exams, please be sure to enter the exam in the CETL Test Accomodation System as soon as possible. Again, we can't do this for you. Exam dates are listed in the detailed syllabus.
