CS410: Data Structures
Spring 1999 - Prof. Joe Halpern
Friday, May 21 The exam is now graded. You
can see your exam starting next Monday. If you want me to email you
your grade, send me email.
Friday, May 7 Both review sessions will
be held in Upson 205.
Thursday, May 6 Various things:
Good luck on the exam!
- Review problems are now available
- Review sessions: There will be two review
sessions for the final, one on Friday, May 14, 7-8:30 (done by Lantian
Zheng) and one on Monday, May 17, 7-8:30 (done by Indranil Gupta).
- Office hours will continue as usual up until Thursday, May 20
(the day before the exam), but check netnews and this page to see
late-breaking changes. Two changes are definite: my office hours
today (May 6) will be postponed by 15 minutes (they will run 3:15 - 4:10);
my office hours next week will be 1-2 on Thursday, May 13, not 3-4.
- Homework: I will post solutions to HW10 on Tuesday (to allow people
who are taking advantage of the one-time late policty to hand it in
late). I will announce when HW9 and HW10 is graded; after that, you can`
pick up your HW10 from me, as well as getting your HW9 grade (there's
nothing to hand back for HW9, since it was a programming assignment).
- Exam conflicts: just a reminder once again that if you have exam
conflicts, please let me know by email as soon as possible.
- Exam grades: We're planning to grade the exam right after it's
over (on May 21). You should be able to get your grades from me by
email after May 24. If you're around, you're welcome to stop by and
look at your exam too.
Monday, April 19 There have been some
corrections to the provided utilities for HW9. I've marked the version
of the assignment on the web with **CHANGED** to show where the changes have occurred.
Check netnews for further annoucements of changes.
Sunday, March 14 Because Cindy is busy,
the only time you can pick up the homework on Monday and Tuesday is 2-4 PM. Email Cindy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if that doesn't work for you.
Solutions are finally available.
Note that I regarded some prelims yesterday due to problems with question 6 (see the solutions for details).
Friday, March 12 As previously announced, there will be changes in office hours
this week to accommodate the fact that the homework is due Tuesday, not
These changes are for the week of March 13-20 only!
- Joy Alamgir's office hours will be on Sunday 3:30-4:30, in Upson 320
(this is Randy Fernando's usual time and place). Joy's office hours
on Tuesday are cancelled.
- Randy Fernando will hold office hours Sunday 5-6, in Upson 320.
- Eric Melin will hold office hours Monday, 1-2 in Rhodes 455.
Eric's office hours on Wednesday are cancelled.
Thursday, March 11 The midterms are graded, and can be
picked up Cindy Robinson. The mean was not too high: 36/60. It was certainly
harder (and longer) than I intended. If you have questions about the grading,
then (1) do *not* take your midterm from Cindy's office; once you do that,
you waive the right to complain, (2) wait until solutions are posted
(probably next Wednesday) to see what you did wrong, and (3) if you're still
convince there's a problem, make an appointment to see me. Note that I will be
out of the office until Wednesday (Prof. Tardos is teaching the class on Tuesday).
There is no statute of limitations on questions about the midterm, as long
as you leave it in Cindy's office.
Thursday, March 11 Because the homework this week is due on
Tuesday, many of the office hours normally held on Tuesday and Wednesday will
be moved back to Monday. Stay tuned for times.
Thursday, March 11 Randy Fernando's office hours for this Sunday (March 14) have been moved to 5-6PM.
Monday, March 8 Solutions to the review problems are available
Friday, March 5 The review sessions will be held 7-8:30 on Monday and Tuesday night, in Thurston 205.
Sunday, Feb. 28 I've scheduled the midterm for
Thursday, March 11, in class. I will be scheduling review sessions
shortly. Watch this space for details. Also, note that I've slightly
changed the course grading scheme, to be consistent with the actual
number of assignments: the final is worth 35% and the problem sets are
worth 20% (the programming assignments are still worth 25%).
Tuesday, Feb. 15Yet another version of Sorter.java (needed for HW3) has been posted; this one has extra parameters for Insertion Sort.
Monday, Feb. 15A corrected version of Sorter.java (needed for HW3) has been posted.
Friday, Feb. 12The source files you need to do
homework 3 are now available on the web. You can access them through
the web version of HW3. We're also setting up a directory under
\\goose\courses where you can leave your program when it's done.
I hope it will be set up by today. Finally, note that the homework
also has a written component. You can hand that in at the beginning
of class on Feb. 25.
Thursday, Feb. 11Jason Howes and Joy Alamgir
will be offering short Java tutorials tomorrow (2/12) in the CSUGlab
from 12-1 and 4:30-5:30. Also, keep checking the version of HW3 on the
web page for minor corrections and updates. As I said in class,
the test harness is in class1.java, not Tester.java.
Wednesday, Feb. 10Rami Baalbaki's office hours have changed to 4-5 on Monday, in Rhodes 455 (instead of 8:30-9:30 on Monday)
Friday, Feb. 5 Check here
to find out about passwords and other info regarding the CSUGlab.
You'll need to deal with this before you can use the lab.
Thursday, Feb. 4 There have been some changes in offices hours. Randy Fernando will be holding office hours Sunday afternoon, not Sunday evening, and Rami Baalbaki's office hours are cancelled
for Feb. 8.
