General method of instruction

This class will be more like a lab class. Approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of the instruction time will be devoted to lecture time. The lecture format will be informal. Each day I'll provide background information and relevant commands for that day's topic (e.g. creating variables). Throughout the lecture I will have you problem solve and explore the commands related to the topic of the day. The rest of the time will be devoted to working on homework or your class project.

Recommended preparation

Class assignments and grading

The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
