Course Syllabus
The table below gives the planned syllabus for the course.
This syllabus is subject to change, as experience dictates.
When it becomes necessary to
revise the schedule, this page will be updated to reflect
the changes.
Material describing the course and its
objectives and grading
policies is available elsewhere.
Readings should be done before the "lecture" meeting on the
given date, as the inclass quiz will be related to the
readings. Optional readings are optional, and can be used for
background or enrichment. References in the readings and
optional readings are from the book Concepts, Techniques,
and Models of Computer Programming
[vanRoyHaridi04], except as noted.
Other references are given in the
bibliography below.
The rightmost column gives a mapping of topics to knowledge units from
the
Final Report of the Joint ACM/IEEECS Task Force on Computing Curricula 2001 for Computer Science.
Except for the initial meeting, all other course meetings are
concerned with all of the course's
essential learning outcomes.
