RoomRoy S. Monday through Thursday 2: An introduction to Boolean algebra, combinational and sequential circuits.

Gate and flip-flop characteristics. Concepts and techniques such as multiprogramming, virtual storage, and virtual machines. Data and instruction representation. Design, implementation, and demonstration of combinational and sequential logical functions will be an integral part of the course. A laboratory component of this course will provide hands on experience in upgrading, repairing, and maintaining personal computers. It is available in three formats: Both of the electronic formats are free, and if you are comfortable with e-books, they should be all you need.

If, however, you like to read from paper, the hardcopy should be cheaper than an ink cartridge. The student is not required to comouter a textbook for this class; all of the notes are available from the course web site at http: Instead, the student will purchase fundamentqls hard drive in order to perform the labs.

Details on the purchase of this hard drive will be available during the first class period of the semester. Purchase this hard drive before the fourth week of class!

The course outline is presented below.

The instructor has the right to alter the outline at any time due to time constraints, unexpected scheduling conflicts, or overall benefit to class effectiveness.

Final Exam Times Section Monday, April 30 — 8: Monday, April 30 — 6: Please verify these times with the University’s Final Exam Schedule. The table below shows the weights fundamentaks by each assignment toward calculating a student’s final grade. The table below presents the translation between a student’s total score and their final grade.

The following is duplicated from Section 5. Expectations, Tarnkff, and Participation: Both students and instructors have expectations of one another. Many of these are mutual. Students should expect the instructor fundamdntals be in class on time, to be prepared, to be attentive to students, to be available to answer questions and to provide help related to the course, and to make a genuine effort to help students achieve the course objectives.

On those rare occasions when the instructor must miss class, students should expect suitable arrangements for the class to continue in the instructor’s absence. Students should expect the instructor to devote considerable time and effort to the course. The instructor has similar expectations desugn students: The instructor expects students to devote considerable time and effort to the course.


When you are absent, you are still responsible for material, assignments, and anything else that occurs in class.

When you must miss class, you are responsible for finding out what was missed, making sure that any work due that day gets to the instructor, and getting any assignments or materials handed out funsamentals your absence so that you can prepare for the next class. This is a 4-hour course and davd should be prepared to spend a minimum of hours outside of class for each hour in-class.

Attendance and participation is important; students with poor attendance generally do poorly. Missing material from one class makes it difficult to understand new material and, once behind, it is difficult to catch up.

You are encouraged to ask appropriate questions and to participate in class discussions and activities. Fundanentals may learn as much from one another as from the instructor. If you are confused about some point, chances are that others are also confused and will appreciate that you asked for clarification. Each lab carries equal weight towards calculating a student’s lab grade. For most of the labs, the grade will be determined with a quiz during the first 10 minutes of class on the first class period following the scheduled lab.

Labs are regularly scheduled once a week for the last hour of one of the class periods. The only time you can make up a lab is during open lab hours. Students performing a lab during these open lab hours will be at a serious disadvantage since they will not have the aid of the instructor, a lab partner, or the in-class lab lecture.

Therefore, every attempt should be made to attend all of the lab periods.

The instructor reserves the right to disapprove any explanations for absences presented without prior notice and not provide the opportunity for a make-up test. Students knowing they will be absent from an announced test because of personal or business reasons are required to inform the instructor before the absence.

A make-up test may be given early in some cases. Tests may include any material covered in lectures, assigned readings, or exercises even if the material was not covered directly in lecture. Student-teacher relationships are built on trust. For example, students must trust that teachers have made responsible decisions about the structure and content of the course, and teachers must trust that work submitted by a student was indeed done by the student.

Acts which violate this trust undermine the educational process and are inconsistent with our very reason for being at ETSU. You are encouraged to discuss the material and issues addressed in the course, including assignments, with members of the class and others.

Helping one another find and understand problems in assignments is permitted as long as an honest individual attempt has been made to solve the problem. Completing an assignment “by committee” and submitting it as an individual work is academic misconduct unless the assignment has been clearly designated as a team assignment.


Your name on submitted work is an affirmation that the work is yours. The following is taken from section 5. Any act of dishonesty in academic work constitutes academic misconduct. This includes plagiarism, the changing of falsifying of any academic documents or materials, cheating, and the giving or receiving of unauthorized aid in tests, examinations, or other assigned school work.

Penalties for academic misconduct will vary with the seriousness of the offense and may include, but are not limited to: For a second academic offense the penalty is permanent expulsion. Paul, Minnesota, p. Students with needs for note taking or test taking accommodations should make arrangements with the instructor during the first week of the term. The use of laptops or PDAs for the purpose of note taking or viewing the on-line course notes is permitted.

All other uses are prohibited. Any student found to violate this policy will be asked to discontinue use of the device for the remainder of the class period. A second offense will result in the removal of the student’s laptop privileges for the remainder of the semester.

Classes are seldom canceled; use your better judgment if main roads are snow-covered or icy. Please listen to the radio if there is any doubt about early morning classes being canceled or delayed. You may not work in the Nicks Hall or Gilbreath Hall labs for other freshman and sophomore level computer science classes. Failure to abide by this policy may result in the removal of your lab privileges which likely will result in a failing grade.

A complete list of lab rules to be observed when using a CSCI laboratory can be found at http: Food, drinks, and tobacco products: Food, drinks, and the use of tobacco products of any type are never permitted in any of the labs. In addition, no tobacco products of any type may be used inside ETSU campus buildings. Please make sure to see the syllabus attachment provided by the Office of the Registrar regarding key dates and ccomputer information.

Each week there will be one hour of laboratory desiggn scheduled. This will be during the last hour of either the Monday or Wednesday meeting time. Single PDF of entire book: March 5 th through 9 th:
