The course instructor is Dean Brock. The course lectures will be delivered on Tuesday and Thursday from 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM in Karpen 033.

Generally, lectures review and illustrate concepts covered in the textbook. CSCI 363 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 363 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.
