Course:  Introduction to Computing Using MATLAB (4 credits) 
Instructor:  K.Y. Daisy Fan 
Website:  http://www.cs.cornell.edu/courses/cs1112/2015sp 
Alternative:  CS1110 (Python) 
Forbidden Overlap:  Credit is given for only one of CS 1112, CS 1114, CS 1115, and BEE 1510. Due to a partial overlap in content, students will receive 6 credits instead of 8 if they take CS 1112 and CS 1110. Students will receive 5 credits instead of 6 if they take CS 1142 and CS 1110.

Upson B7 is a computer lab. (UPS B7 is split in half; we will use the right half.) The first two weeks and then every other week, discussion will take place in the lab instead of the regular classrooms. A reminder of the section location will be posted every Monday.

Items that count towards your course grade include homework (programming projects), discussion/lab exercises, quizzes, and exams (prelims and final).
Exercises (E)  =  4% (discussion exercises) 
Quizzes (Q)  =  1% (in lecture) 
Projects (P)  =  25% 
Prelim 1 (T1)  =  20% 
Prelim 2 (T2)  =  20% 
Final (F)  =  30% 
Exercises (E)  =  9% (discussion exercises) 
Quizzes (Q)  =  1% (in lecture) 
Projects 13 (P)  =  40% 
Prelim 1 (T1)  =  50% 
Your course grade will follow the "cutoff" structure given below. You need an overall score higher than 55 (out of 100) to get a "D" ("marginal pass"). Note that your College (or Major) may require a "C" to be a passing grade. We reserve the right to make adjustments both up and down based on our knowledge of each student.
Overall score Letter grade > 93 A, A, A+ > 80 B, B, B+ > 65 C, C, C+
Topics and the course schedule are given below. Selected lecture slides and example code will be posted after each lecture. These posted files are not complete transcripts of the lectures. You are expected to attend lecture and to take notes for yourself. Topics and dates are subject to change.
