Spring 2001 CSCI 333 Syllabus


The course instructor is Dean Brock. The course lectures will be delivered on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1:15 PM to 2:05 PM in Rhoades 110. Since Rhoades 110 has neither a computer projector or an air conditioner, we'll teach the course the old-fashioned way -- with sweat and chalk.

Generally, lectures review and illustrate concepts covered in the textbook. CSCI 333 students are expected to consult the course schedule and read the relevant sections of textbook before coming to class.

Homework assignments, which include programming exercises, may be viewed on the CSCI 333 homework index. Solutions to homework assignments will also appear on this index. However, as a courtesy to the textbook authors, no solutions will be posted to problems assigned from the textbook.

Homework assignments will be done in groups of three or four students as explained in my homework policy page.
