Instructor's Requirements

As a student wanting to learn about the Java language, it is your responsibility to read the textbook and the supplemental materials posted in the blackboard, complete assignments in time, participate in the classroom exercises and activities, and attend class regularly.

 

As I believe that engaging the students in the learning is essential for teaching to be effective, you will spend the majority of class time involved in collaborative activities. You will be involved in class exercises, collaborate with your classmates and your instructor.  As you will want to contribute to these discussions, you will need to come to class prepared to discuss, analyze and evaluate information from your text and other assigned readings.

Course Policies on Make-up Exams, Late Assignments, Tardiness

Students are expected to take each exam on the scheduled dates.

 

Make-up exams are not guaranteed, but are granted at the discretion of the instructor. If make-up exams are allowed, it is necessary to make arrangements with the instructor prior to exam date.
