|Text:||Practical C++ Programming, by Steve Ovalline|
A study of the syntax and features of the C and C++ programming languages.
Prerequisites: CSC 116 or instructor's consent.
This course is an integral part of the Computer Science program at Mississippi College. C and C++ are widely used in industry, and in other courses later in the CS curriculum. After completing this course, the student will be able to read and write non-trivial programs in C or C++, and understand some of the strengths and weaknesses of these languages
The semester point total may vary due to unforeseen circumstances. Any variance will be small. Final grades will be based on these same percentages of the actual total.
Projects should be handed in on time, and late projects are charged 10 points for each day late. However, each student has five free late days which may be spent on any programming project in any combination. Free late days are not transferable, and expire at start of the final exam.
Mississippi College class attendance policies as described on pp. 46 and 47 of the college catalog will be enforced. Absences may be excused for illness or other appropriate cause. Exams missed due to circumstances beyond the student's control may be made up at a mutually agreeable time and place. Adequate documentation of the cause of an absence may be required.
Mississippi College regulations regarding the integrity of academic work will be enforced. The computer science group has established the following addendum:
In a computer science class individual effort is expected. Student misconduct not only includes cheating on tests, but also extends to copying or collaborating on programming assignments, projects, lab work or research unless otherwise specified by the instructor. Using other people's accounts to do your work or having others do your work is prohibited. Close proximity in lab does not mean collaboration is permitted. NOTE: Discussing logical solutions to problems is acceptable, exchange of code, pseudocode, designs, or procuring solutions from the Web, other texts, the Internet or other resources on or off campus is not acceptable.
First offense: grade of 0 for all parties involved unless the guilty party can be determined. Second offense: grade of F in the course.
