CIS-112 is the Programming II class here at PGCC. Using the "C" language, the course continues
with the concepts covered in CIS-111 such as Functions and Arrays. In addition, subjects such as Pointers and Data structures
will be covered during the upcoming semester. We will concentrate on structured programming techniques, top-down design,
clear and concise coding, good programming style and most importantly, the development of good programming logic.
There is one (1) textbook required for the course. It is APPLICATIONS PROGRAMMING IN ANSI C
by Johnsonbaugh and Kalin. We will use the text primarily as a reference to supplement material covered in class. Since, however,
you will have many questions throughout the semester, it is mandatory that you obtain a copy as soon as possible.
The grading system for the course is based on 500 points. There will be three (3) major exams given
during the semester. Each exam is worth 100 points. Don't miss an exam - there are no make ups ! Each exam will be announced weeks
in advanced so you will have plenty of time to plan your schedule. If you miss an exam you will receive a zero (0).
It is highly unlikely that you can pass the course without all three exams so make effort to be in class.
In addition to your exams, you will be required to hand in 5 or 6 lab projects during the
course of the semester. Each project will be assigned a due date. No project will be accepted after that date -
no exceptions. You may, however, turn in projects early. Projects are handed out far enough in advance that you
will have plenty of time to complete each assignment. Regardless of the number of projects, they collectively
will be worth 100 points. Each project will be assigned a point value prior to the due
date so you'll know exactly what each one is worth as we go along.
Finally, there will be 6 quizzes throughout the semester.
You may drop your lowest quiz. If you miss a quiz for whatever reason, that becomes
your lowest quiz. Your five "best" quizzes will be worth 20 points each (for a total
of 100 points).
Your final grade for the course is based on the following scale:
450 - 500 points
400 - 449 points
350 - 399 points
300 - 349 points
0 - 299 points
The computers for the course are the micros located on the second floor of Lanham Hall.
