CISC 3110 (CIS 15) Advanced Programming Techniques
4 hours; 4 credits
A second course in programming. Advanced programming techniques emphasizing
reliability, maintainability, and reusability. Module design and multi-file programs.
Abstract data types. Objects, classes, and object-oriented design. Storage class and scope.
Addresses, pointers, and dynamic storage allocation. Test suites, test drivers, and testing
strategies; debugging, assertions, and an introduction to formal techniques. Recursion and
function parameters. (Not open to students who are enrolled in or have completed
Computer and Information Science 3130 .)
Prerequisite: Computer and Information Science 1.5
I'll be around right before and right after class, or by appointment.
There will be several projects (e.g: homeworks).
You will have at least a midterm and a final exam. There might also be a surprise quiz every week.
In This Class:
Peer cooperation is encouraged, however, everyone must submit their own work. You will
be expected to answer detailed questions about your assignments/projects. (i.e.: if you
didn't write them, I'll know.)
Academic Integrity: The faculty and administration of Brooklyn College support an environment free from cheating and plagiarism. Each student is responsible for being aware of what constitutes cheating and plagiarism and for avoiding both. The complete text of the CUNY Academic Integrity Policy and the Brooklyn College procedure for implementing that policy can be found at this site: http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/bc/policies. If a faculty member suspects a violation of academic integrity and, upon investigation, confirms that violation, or if the student admits the violation, the faculty member MUST report the violation.
This means that if you cheat on a test or an assignment, I must file a report which will initiate academic penalties.
Attendance is not mandatory (I don't need a doctors note!), but highly recommended. [you must attend at least a few times in the first six weeks, or you will be dropped from the class with a WU grade]. Also, it would be VERY difficult to pass the class without regular attendence; you are responsible for catching up if you miss class (for any reason). That being said, if you hardly ever show up (miss >= 4 classes) don't expect to get anything but a WU grade.
All projects, assignments, homeworks, etc., will be emailed to me.
Tentative grade breakup: ~25% for Midterm, ~35% for Projects, ~40% Final - These may
change slightly depending on how well the class does in any of the above.
