CS 367 Schedule, Fall 2017

1 Assignments

All assessments will be posted and announced as early as we have them prepared, generally with at least one week to complete the assignment.

2 Test Schedule

Tests are bigger milestones, and their dates are announced ahead of time. Only severe scheduling anomalies would force a delay in test dates.

3 Topics and Readings

Note, you can access our textbook in the Gateway Library (JC), call #QA76.5.B795 2016

Tuesday/Thursday sections may be ahead of schedule particularly between Labor Day and Columbus Day. All sections will tend to be at least on schedule all semester.
