Office Hours: MWF from 1:30PM - 3:30PM and TR from 9:30AM - 11:00AM

We will meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00PM-2:20PM in Olin 103.
All students, regardless of major, are welcome to take this course. In addition, if you are thinking about majoring in computer science, this is a good course to test the waters before jumping in!
Prerequisites: None (other than knowing how to use a computer such as working with files, installing/running applications, and using a web browser)
All grades will be recorded in Moodle as the semester progresses, including your final grade. Your final grade will be weighted as follows:
You will complete multiple projects to obtain hands-on experience building a website. These will be completed using various web languages and tools, and will be submitted via Moodle. Every project will be equally weighted, and each will be given a grade out of 10 points.
You will complete three exams throughout the semester over the material covered in class and in the textbook. The dates for these exams will be decided as the semester progresses.
You will complete a final project that involves building a complete website, and you will present your website during finals week to the class. This will allow you to practice everything you have learned throughout the semester, as well as help build oral presentation skills. The website and presentation will be in lieu of a final exam.

You are expected to attend class. I do understand that absences are sometimes unavoidable, so
I appreciate an email letting me know in advance that you will be absent.
You are responsible for catching up on missed classes. If you do not let me know ahead of
time that you will be absent on an exam day, you will not get a chance to retake the
exam. If you have an excused
absence, contact me before the quiz to reschedule taking it.
Finally, in accordance with Wofford policy, you must be present for the final exam.
You are encouraged to bring your computer to work along with the examples in class. I highly advise you, however, to not become distracted by your devices (notebook, phone, tablet, etc.) for things other than course-related use. Not only are you missing out and inhibiting your learning, but it is often a distraction to others as well.
You are expected to keep up with all coursework and due dates during the semester.
coursework past the due date/time (even by a single minute!) will result in a 20%
penalty for that particular project. After that, you have 24 hours to submit the late
work. After 24 hours, the project will not be accepted
under any circumstances and will receive a 0. There are a few reasons that are acceptable
(medical, family emergencies, etc.), but I will usually only grant extensions for those
cases when receiving an email or phone call before the due date. I will decide on a
case-by-case basis, but having official documentation will help make your case.
Exams must be taken on their scheduled date and time. If you must miss class on the day of an exam, please contact me in advance. I will be much less likely to be forgiving if contacted afterwards.
According to Wofford policy, you must be present during the final exam time.
I will use email for all communication. Feel free to contact me using "email@example.com".
If you need accomodations with anything, please contact both the Wofford Accessibility Services and myself at the beginning of the semester.
