An introduction to the methods underlying modern software development. Specific topics will include object-oriented design and the development of graphical user interfaces. Programming assignments will emphasize the use of objects implemented in standard libraries.
There will be five or six programming assignments during the semester. Due dates for the programming assignments will be announced when the assignment is made.
Programs will be turned in using a process that will be described in the lab sessions.
You may have up to four late days on programming assignments throughout the semester. Once you have used up your allocation of "late days," late programming assignments will not be accepted. Late days are allocated in integral units: a programming assignment truned in one minute late on the due date consumes an entire "late day."

There will be four or five homework assignments during the semester. Due dates for the homework will be announced when the assignment is made. Assignments are due at the start of class. Late assignments will not be accepted.
On occasion throughout the semester, the first 10 minutes of lecture will be used to administer a "pop quiz". These quizzes will require very short answers and will be designed to reward students who are keeping up with the assigned readings and material presented in lecture.
There will not be any "make up" quizzes and students who arrive late to class will not be able to turn in a quiz for that class.
There will be two midterm exams (3/4 and 4/15) and one final exam (5/11). All exams will be cumulative.
You are welcome (and encouraged) to talk to your fellow students about the programming and homework assignments; however, everything that you turn in should reflect your own work unless the assignment calls for group work.
All students must subscribe to the class mailing list. The mailing list will be used for class announcements.
