Date: Sun, 27 May 2007 17:55:59 -0400 (EDT) From: Adrian German To: A201/A597 Summer I 2007 Distr. List Subject: a201/a597 update Dear A201/A597 Friends, Notes for Tue May 29 and Wed May 30 have been posted, they discuss the 9 (nine) problems you need to focus on for the midterm. Note that the first two labs this week will be used as mock (pretend) exams. Both Metal and I will be there, just to be sure you get enough help. The exam is on Thu in class, with the lab on Thu offering a chance to self-grade your work right after you submitted it and perhaps catch errors and fix/explain them so as to not lose all the points---or, to just confirm it to yourself that all's well and your exam was perfect. Individual grade reports for the second week forthcoming, later tonight. Sincerely, Adrian German

Lecture notes for Tue and Wed will include detailed solutions for these problems.
Labs will be used for exam practice (Tue, Wed details to be posted) and as part of the exam (Thu).
Full details to be posted Sunday May 27 and sent by e-mail as part of our weekly individual grade reports.

Date: Wed, 16 May 2007 22:54:28 -0400 From: "German, Dan-Adrian" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: SU07-BL-CSCI-A201-C2304@oncourse.iu.edu Subject: minute papers from now on, individual feedback forthcoming Dear A201/A597 Friends, Starting tomorrow your minute papers should include a brief summary, comprising perhaps the most memorable things in your current reading assignment, or any highlights that would emphasize the essential ideas of the reading assignment for the day. Of course, you can bring your minute paper written already from home. Then, in class, we will likely ask a question during the lecture anyway, and you will add that to the paper as brought from home and turn that in. I will read them carefully, it will help me understand how you absorb the information in your readings. Individual feedback is forthcoming, including grades for the the first week and feedback from your minute papers collected thus far. Thanks and let me know if you need me in any way.

There is a box open in OnCourse for Week One (Labs 1, 2, 3 and Homework 1, 2).
It's better to turn assignments late than never, so keep working until you finish them.
Ideally you will turn them on time (on Tuesdays) but if you're late turn them in late.
Late assignments are not encouraged (in fact they are discouraged) but they are accepted.
