Academic Honesty

We are all expected to uphold all the standards and ethics of Creighton University.

The policy on academic honesty is set forth in the University bulletin.

Cheating

In particular, students caught cheating on a homework, program, quiz, or test will (at the minimum) be given a zero for that exam and will be referred to the Dean and/or Student Services for counseling and further disciplinary action. At the instructors discretion any student may be assigned an F as their class grade for any violation of the academic honesty policy of Creighton University.

Collaboration

  • Unless otherwise noted, all quizzes and tests are closed book, with no collaboration between students allowed.
  • Programming assignments allow only limited collaboration. You may ask for debugging help from your peers, but at no time should another student assist in the design or coding of your program. The design and implementation of your program should be entirely your own work!
  • Working together on homework assignments can be a positive experience and is not prohibited as long as the work you turn in is your best attempt at the assigned problem (i.e., no copying someone else's answers and turning it in as your own).

Violations of the above collaboration will be dealt with severely, with possible outcomes including a zero or negative grade, immediate failure of the course, and expulsion from the university. In the case of programming assignments, you are encouraged to start early so that there is time to seek help from the instructor as the need arises.

Description

Course description:

This course provides an introduction to problem solving, computing, and programming using the language Python.

The process of programming is much more than just writing code. It involves analyzing the problem at hand, designing a solution, implementing and testing that solution, and critiquing results. The python language is designed to naturally introduce fundamental concepts of programming and make it possible to being solving nontrivial problems quickly.

The specific goals of this course are:

  • To develop problem solving and programming skills to enable the student to design solutions to non-trivial problems and implement those solutions in Python.
  • To master the fundamental programming constructs of Python, including variables, expressions, functions, control structures, and lists.
  • To build a foundation for more advanced programming techniques, including object-oriented design and the use of standard data structures (as taught in CSC 222).

This course is intended as a first programming course, so no prior experience with computers is assumed. The problem-solving and programming techniques introduced in this course are further expanded in the follow-up course, CSC 222: Object-Oriented Programming.


Course Organization:

Required Work

Learning to program requires a consistent time commitment, as each new concept and programming technique builds on those that came before. There will be six quizzes and six programs. There will also be one midterm and one final. To allow for unavoidable absences, the lowest quiz grade will be dropped. Periodically, there will be in-class exercises that will be collected and graded.

To demonstrate problem solving and programming skills, students will complete 5-6 programs throughout the semester. Each assignment will involve the design and implementation of a Python program, and may also include a written component in which the behavior of the program is analyzed. Late assignments will be not recieve full credit.

Grades based on

F 0-59%

Depending on class performance, some shifting of grades (in an upward direction only) may occur as final letter grades are assigned.

Regular attendance is expected of all students. If you must miss class for a legitimate reason, it is your responsibility to make up missed work. Quizzes and assignments will not be rescheduled except in extreme circumstances.

Required Work

Learning to program large projects require cooperation and planning. Developing a software plan is one of the main goals of this class, as is the ability to coordinate and work with others.

Modern software is most often designed using an object oriented paradigm. We will delve into Object Oriented Design, OOD, its Java imlementation, and the use of the version cntrol system GIT.

Description

This class covers the basics of iPhone App development.

Objectives

The purpose of programming is to make the computer do what you want it to. The goal of this course is to take the student over the hurdles of Swift and XCode so that they an build the App of their dreams.

Course Organization

The first half of the class will present the first seven chapters of the textbook in detail. This will include the basics of the Swift programming language and how the XCode IDE functions. The second half will focus on the Student's Apps and the technologies needed to achieve full functionality.

There will be a two Tests and a Midterm. It will cover the material from the previous week's lecture(s), the appropriate chapters of the book, and any lessons you should have learned while you were doing your projects. The final will be your iPhone App.

Assignments

Assignments will be collected at the beginning of the class period in which they are due. Anything turned in after the assignment has been collected is considered late.

I do not believe in arriving late to class, finishing homework in class, printing materials after class, or handing it in "later" and receiving full credit. Late assignments will not receive full credit.

Grades based on
Three Quizzes 25 %
Five-six programming assignments 25 %
Midterm 75-minute tests 25 %
