CSC 110 or Equivalent
Class Precipitation 10%
There will be projects assigned every class.
Late work will ONLY be accepted with PRIOR arrangement. You may
however work ahead.
If you are late for class two times it will count as an unexcused
absence. For every two unexcused absences, one letter grade will
be deducted from final grade.
The UNIX lab is (theoretically) accessible by telnet 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. There is no one to restart the lab it
something happens over the weekend, so plan accordingly. Make
sure to have a backup of your work somewhere besides the Parkland
system. Special licensing applies to the Macromedia Dreamweaver
and Flash used in this class, which means that this software is
only available in M221. If you do not purchase copies of this
software, you will need to use M221 to complete your assignments.
As usual, above 90% one gets an A, above 80% a B, above 70% a
C and above 60% a D. I reserve the right to lower this criterion,
but will never raise them.
The department as a whole is concerned that numerous students
are surfing the web when they should be paying attention to lectures.
Students have complained that surfers disrupt the class. I ask
that all web surfing done in class be related to the class. If
someone else's surfing bothers you, let me know privately and
I will remedy the situation.
Please turn off the ringers on your cell phones and beepers.
All material handed in with your name on it is to be your work.
Cheating includes; turning in code found on the web as yours,
giving your code to someone else, turning in code someone else
wrote, and using a HTML editor on assignments required to be done
on a text editor (Notepad). If you are deemed to be cheating,
will get a zero for that assignment and your final grade will
be lowered by a grade. If you cheat on more than one assignment
you will fail the course and be faced with disciplinary action.
My grading policy takes into consideration that your schedules
are tight and that there is a lot of work to be done; unfortunately
this is not good for "procrastinators". Some may realize
that there is only a week left, and try to do all the projects
at once by copying someone else's work
I have failed students for cheating and will not hesitate to
do so again. As a rule of thumb, when you are talking to someone
else, you are not cheating. When you are writing something for
someone else, you are cheating. Example: You give a copy of
your code to someone, that someone turns it in as his or her
assignment. Both of people WILL fail the assignment!
If you have trouble hearing over the air conditioning, let me
know. If you have trouble reading a particular color marker,
let me know. If you have trouble reading my writing or understand
my accent, let me know. If you have trouble reading the computer
screen, let me know.
If you feel you have a disability for which you may need an

aids, non traditional instructional formats), please inform
