Structured Computer Organization, 4th edition, by A. Tanenbaum, Prentice-Hall, Inc., Upper Saddle River, NJ, © 1999.
There will be two hour-long exams and a two-hour final. Problems and programming exercises will be assigned regularly, and collected and graded. In addition, each student will research, write a report and give a 15 minute presentation on a topic in computer architecture not covered in class. A list of suggested topics will be provided early in the course. The final grade will be computed as follows:
Successful completion of CS 122 or permission of instructor.
The student is responsible for all topics covered and work assigned in class. A makeup for one of the hourly examinations will be given only if the student provides an acceptable reason for the absence, in writing, to the instructor. In addition, please see the Attendance Policy statement in the Bulletin of Information.
The assignments are of great importance; these should be given the highest priority. While students are encouraged to consult with one another about the material, all work submitted should be the product of each student's individual efforts. In other words, asking another student to explain a needed concept is fine; copying from another student's assignment is not.
