1. Understanding basic concepts independent of language
implementation: Basic computing, object-oriented, and
Students will have at least five programming
assignments and at least three exams. These will require them
to demonstrate the ability to write and test programs. The
simplest of these will require them to declare variables and
use them in assignment statements and selection. The exams
will contain objective questions and programming problems.
2. Be able to design algorithm for given problem situation
and implement using programming language.
Design and implement a program that contains loops and
„X Design and implement a program with a database
3. Be able to test and debug a program.
Finding and fixing syntax and logic errors
Applied techniques for preventing errors
4. Understands and can apply standard documentation
Write IPO and pseudocode for the programming ssignments
and some of the exam questions
• Course Topics:
Data types, Constants, Variables, Arrays, Operators and
expressions, Assignment statements, Conditional statements: if,
Input/output, Loops - for, while, do-while, Operations with
sequential files, methods, Working with databases, and
1 The course outline will depend on the text book(s). It
will look very much like the current 4600 with more emphasis on
object oriented topics
|Honor Code Reference:|
"A Culture of Honesty" is The University of Georgia's policy about academic honesty.
Every student who enrolls at the University agrees to be bound by the policy.
This means that each student has a responsibility to read the policy and comply
with it. It’s no defense to a charge of academic dishonesty to say
‘I didn’t know that was prohibited.’ Students must perform all of their academic
work without plagiarizing, cheating, lying, tampering, stealing, receiving
assistance from others (unless the faculty member authorizes that assistance)
or using sources to assist in that work (without giving fair attribution).

A pamphlet published by the UGA Office of the Vice President for Instruction].
We appreciate the fact that honesty runs rampant in our classes. We strive
to have a culture of complete academic honesty. Thus, The University’s Academic
Honesty Policy is in effect. However, violations have actually occurred. If an
alleged incident occurs, the situation will immediately be documented and
sent to the Office of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs for processing,
and your grade in this course will be an NR (Not Reported) until the matter has
run through due process. Officials in that Office will directly contact all
parties involved. If you have any questions, refer to The University’s Academic
Honesty Guidelines in University of Georgia Publications for more details on the
rules and procedures (also at www.uga.edu/ovpi). Again,
we do appreciate your honesty.
Further Explanation of the Academic Honesty Policy: We do want to point out that
the Academic Honesty Policy does not apply to helping someone understand basic
concepts, explaining to someone the interpretation of an assignment, or clarifying
how to use software. Please help each other, unless you are taking an exam or quiz.
This can save valuable time and aggravation (trust us), and really reenforce your
learning. The policy applies to materials turned in for grading (quizzes, exams,
assignments, programs, etc.). Homework assignments, quizzes and exams are
individual effort. Each assignment is supposed to represent your work, not someone
else's. Of course you may discuss the assignments with others in the course,
this can be beneficial to all. Getting help to learn how to do something in Visual
Basic is very differnt from using someone else's work as the basis for your own
work. Make sure, however, that in the end you do your own assignments. You are not
allowed to copy material from others, or integrate data files or code written by
others into your work (except as provided by or indicated by the Instructor).
Of course, quizzes and exams are always to be individual efforts, and no
consultation or communication of any kind is allowed during exams and quizzes.
All evidence of duplicated work will immediately be forwarded to the Office of
the Vice-President for Academic Affairs (see above). Refer to The University’s
Academic Honesty Guidelines in University of Georgia Publications for more details
on the rules and procedures (also at www.uga.edu/ovpi).
See the Exam and Quiz Procedures under Grading and Grade Posting Policies.
If you have any questions, just ask.
Academic Honesty and Group Work Policy: Please note that if a group member does
not participate in a group assignment, The University's Academic Honesty Policy
prohibits his or her name from appearing on it.
Individual Work: It is expected that students will learn from the Instructor,
texts, other books, and possibly from fellow students. All materials submitted
for a grade must be the student's own effort (except for group assignments,
if any). (For group assignments, materials submitted for a grade must be from
the efforts of the students who are members of the group and no others.)
Assignments in this category are to be accomplished individually. This means
that you are not to solve problems together or compare answers prior to turning
in the work. Cooperative efforts on individual work will result in an immediate
score of zero for all parties involved. The situation will immediately be
forwarded to the Office of the Vice-President for Academic Affairs. Please refer
to The University's Academic Honesty Policy (http://www.uga.edu/ovpi) for more
Exam and Quiz Procedures: A list of procedures are stated formally to indicate what
kinds of incidents can be suspect in terms of alleged infractions of The University
Academic Honesty Policy during testing.
Do not talk or share materials during an exam or quiz.
Do not wear a baseball cap during an exam or quiz.
Do use the restroom before you start an exam or quiz. Trips to the restroom
can be suspect.
Do not use email during an exam or quiz (see policy stated elsewhere as well).
Do not leave an exam or quiz early. Wait until time is called.
