Programming: Logic, Design and Implementation (CIS120/17)

Flex Start Weekly Schedule

The college wants you to use the Bristol email account when communicating with me.

If when I return an assignment you do not get a grade it means that you have to go over the assignment and fix and resubmit. Remember, all assignments must be done by everyone. There is no makeup on quizzes and tests (some tests are accepted late - check).

Remember HELP is available on Zoom - see HELP section below. I will post more information when my help has been set up by the college.

The CIS pool is now available for students that need to access licensed software that they cannot use from home.
Remote access virtual desktop
Instructional video for using Remote Access Virtual Desktop - HTML

< Check back!
Schedule by week or unit Information to cover
Please note that the first assignment is at the bottom of the list posted here. You should do the work in order! I may add to the weekly schedule during the course of the week, so please check back multiple times. Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade at the end of the semester. Play computer means to figure out the results yourself by evaluating the data rather than running the query.
Remember that I record all my classes and capture notes on the Smartboard in the spring and fall when I teach online. The recordings (audio) and the Smartboard are available for all students to use under Audio and Smartboard. This semester you should use the information from 2019 and some from Spring 2020.
HELP schedule I will set up some optional class Zoom meetings that you can attend. Check the week of information to see the times and dates.
For now, office hours will be 11 on Monday and Wednesday and 1 on Tuesday and Thursday by appointment. I hold my office hours in Zoom. If it turns out other hours work better for students these may change, so check back. I am also available by request (give me a few time options) especially while we get other support in place. I have been meeting with a lot of students that request it, maybe something you should consider doing. You can email me with a couple of times you can meet and usually one of those will work.
I will send out the information to contact me on Zoom. I will post availability but you can also set something up with me.
Here are some videos you may find useful to connect to resources. Some of these apply to Mac users.

End of semester information The last day of classes is December 16th and I want all homework by then. I will occasionally take a few homeworks through the weekend, but we need to have talked.
The final will be posted on Tuesday, December 6th and is due on Monday, December 12th. Note that you still have a few days to do homework. Check next week for details.
REQUIRED STATUS SHEET: Status sheet
You must pass in the required status with the final or ahead of the final. It is your insurance that I have everything you passed in. If our records differ, I will contact you and ask you to resubmit.
I will be online Tuesday the 6th of November at 11:00 AM to answer questions.

INFORMATION:

I will be available at 9:00PM Monday and 11:00AM on Tuesday.
Office hours by appointment since I am not getting attendance. Let's plan a time that works!
The end is in sight. We are going to look at Visual Basic and that is the last real topic for the semester. We are starting Visual Basic this week. The current version is VB2022. Most of the examples are from previous versions but they work, it is the interface that has changed. The first example goes into version 2022 and there is a video to accompany it.

Week #9 Flex Start
Week of November 14th

INFORMATION:

Remember that I am available at 9:00PM Monday night to go over things. Sorry, I have a head cold and I fell asleep last night.
I am not available online at 11:00AM on Tues but I can do it on Wed.
November 14th is the last day that students can withdraw from their classes. If you are far behind you should do a realistic analysis and decide if you want to withdraw. If you have questions, we can talk!!! You should also talk to financial aid if you have financial aid and you want to be sure you understand the impact of failing and the impact of withdrawing.
Remember we ran into difficulties with document.write waiting until JavaScript was done to show information. I put out examples with alert to show a possible remedy.
This week we are going to go back and take another look at databases, but this time we are going to use multiple tables. This is a brief introduction to the concepts so that it will make a little sense when people talk about a relational database and 3rd normal form. There are entire courses on this topic, so again my goal is familiarity.

EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

Normalization (3rd normal form)
Student 4 table database
Student 4 table data needed We will work on this database.

TOPIC VIDEOS:

Introduction to relational databases
Example of an order relational databases
Access Student Database
1 to 1, 1 to many and many to many relationships

SMARTBOARD AND AUDIO NOTES FROM Spring 2019 and Fall 2019:

Week #8 Flex Start
Week of November 7th

INFORMATION:

I will be online at Zoom at 9:30PM Monday, Nov 7th to go over JavaScript and answer questions. I will also be available at 11:30AM on Monday, Nov 7th since there are no classes on the 8th. If you are having problems try and attend or setup an alternate time with me. I have this meeting every Monday at 9:00PM (tonight it is a half hour later).
Last week I assigned you a mentor who is an alum from the CIS program at Bristol and is working in the field. This is an opportunity to ask questions and connect. I think it is one of the most important assignments.
This week we are finishing our quick look at numbering systems and codes.
Check back!

ASSIGNMENTS TO DO:

ASCII assignment ASCII assignment
Portfolio Project to start (must be done using HTML that you write): I want you to start creating an online portfolio. For CIS majors you can work on this throughout your time at Bristol and develop a portfolio to help you when you are looking for a job. For now we are going to do a basic start. You should make a title page with basic information and a link to a second page that should contain a menu with links to a database that you upload, two JavaScript problems you have written and other work for this or another course. You can certainly incorporate your introductory page from week 1.
The index or first page should have basic information. The second page should link to at least four things that you have done. You can put the work in the root of cisweb or you can put it in a folder. The address should be cisweb.bristolcc.edu/~yourusername/folder/directory if any/name of the page. Remember that the port is now 220. If it is ana html page then it has a .html extension. The database has a .accdb extension. Check with me if you have problems. This is due on December 8th.
Check back!
Week #7 Flex Start
Week of October 31st

INFORMATION:

I will be online at Zoom at 9:00PM Tuesday and 11AM Tuesday, to go over JavaScript and answer questions especially on numbering systems. I recommend you try to attend.
This week we are going to wrap up JavaScript and we are going to take a little break from learning coding and look at numbering systems. For those of you that bought the optional book, there are a lot of logic examples that you should reference. If you did not get the book some research on logic flowcharts and pseudocode might be helpful.
Numbering systems and code
This handout covers binary and hex well, but it was written over 20 years ago and the code information is historical and not current. We will look at 8-bit ASCII code which is not covered and look at the link below.
Reference for ASCII You can start looking this week, but the assignment on this will be next week.

EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

A few examples of conversion using binary, decimal and hex.

ASSIGNMENTS TO DO:

Rock, Paper, Scissors Program: Write the Rock, Paper, Scissors using JavaScript and get it running. I know there are a lot of models out on the web. I want you to write your own code. If you do code that I have not covered,you need to explain what you did and how it works. You should have a loop so that the user can choose to play again. (Because of the problems in the browser changes, the choice of playing again is extra credit - also I recomment alert instead of document.write) You are playing against the computer which should be a random number. I did a random number example in the guess number program.
Number conversions You must pass in the work to get a grade higher than C on this assignment
Career and mentor paper: The mentors are professionals who went through the CIS program at Bristol and are now working in the field or continuing their studies. They have generously volunteered to be an email mentor to discuss career and skills with current students. This assignment will need you to interview your mentor. I want you to write a paper about careers in the computer field. There should be two parts to the paper: The first part should be an interview with your mentor about the work he or she does in the computing field or if your mentor is continuing studies in computing, ask about the degree program he or she is in and what they would like to do when they complete their studies. You should also ask your mentor about the soft skills they find are important and why. Your paper should contain information about your mentor's job or degree program with several quotes from your mentor. You should also include information from the panel of CIS alum. The second part should be researching a career in computing that interests you and writing about what the job involves and the skills that are needed. The paper should include notes citing your sources (I would estimate that you need at least a couple of pages to cover the goals well). In addition, send me a list of the questions you asked your mentor. The paper is due on December 1st by midnight. If you have trouble contacting your mentor, let me know and pass in the mentor part late (the research part must be on time to get full points). If you are too far behind on work and you need to send me a lot of work, I may not send you a mentor until you are more caught up and proved you are participating in this course. If you do not get a mentor this week and you think you should have be sure to contact me so we can figure out any problems.
Check back!

As always it is due the Thursday of the week after it was assigned - so in this case November 3rd. . The flowcharts are my (not so successful) experiment with a drawing toy! Let me know if you have questions. Remember it is a test so no working with anyone but me (that includes Milo and Marcus).
Second JavaScript assignment Extra credit if you do a logic flowchart or pseudocode for Second JavaScript as well as the assigned coding in JavaScript.

Check back!
Week #5 Flex Start
Week of October 17th

INFORMATION:

CIS Alum Panel held on Oct 19th at 12:00 You absolutely should listen to this - it was great!
I will hold the optional Zoom help at 9:00 PM on Monday night and at at 11 on Tuesday to discuss JavaScript.
On Oct 19th, a group of Bristol Computer Information Systems Alum will talk on Zoom about there careers and the paths they took. I set this up every semster and the student feedback is that it is a valuable event to attend. It will run from 12:00 to 1:00 or 1:30 depending on the questions and it will be at the Zoom address I use. I should also note that there is a career paper due after mentors are assigned and you will find this helpful in writing the paper. If you need the Zoom address, contact me. My plan is to record it as well.

NOTES/EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

As always, be sure you listen to the videos. They go over the topics. For backup there are the Smartboard and audio from a previous class which are the lectures that I delivered in class - a lot of students find those very helpful.
Start the week by looking at the logic components and then move on to JavaScript. We will continue with topics like if and loops next week.
Some of the material on JavaScript will definitely be continued next week.
Be sure to go over the Topic Videos on JavaScript and the examples and again I recommend the Smartboard and audio from last year.
Our goal in the next few weeks is to be able to use logic to figure out how to solve a problem and then write a script/program with JavaScript.
The next topic is the introduction to JavaScript and above all else, I want you to understand the examples so that you to can write the code.

EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

Please look at the JavaScript examples at this address.
Specifically look at the examples up through if statements and next week we will move on through finaltotals.html and maybe beyond..

Tutoring with Milo will not be available on Monday since it is a holiday. I will do an optional Zoom on Tuesday at 9:00 PM.
Note that I also do Zoom meetings for the regular CIS120 that you are welcome to attend.
Please get in touch if you have questions - I really do not want to see anyone fall behind.
Note that the beginning of the course is heavier in assignments then the end when things get more complicated!
I want to continue to look at SQL (Structured Query Language) this week. I am including some examples that will help and I suggest you do some research on your own.
Some SQL examples Let me know if you find a typo.
We are going to start looking at logic this week. Logic is truly the key to successful computing, it is at the root of instructing computers.
The optional book is a reference book so,if you got it use it to help you understand logic.
The first thing to do is the Practice exercise. I would listen to the video for the first one and make sure you understand and then I would try the second one alone before listening to the video. Finally you also want to go through the logic concepts and the file processing video.
As always I suggest listing to the audio along with the Smartboard from the previous classes.

EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT:

This week, we will go over some of the principles from the readings above and start looking at logic. We will work on the practice exercise below. Note that there are Smartboard and audio about these examples as well as Topic Videos.

READING

Reading - there is not a required text but there is reading that will add to your knowledge base and that is required.
The readings below should be done sometime in the next few weeks.

If you bought the optional text, read chapter 1 (you might note that at Amazon much of the first chapter is available for Just Enough Programming Logic and Design in the Look inside feature). Might help you decide about the book and chapter #1 is a key chapter for some of the basic knowledge I want you to acquire.
Compiler definition
Compiler vs interpreter
Types of software
Memory and RAM
Programming Process
Pseudocode and Flowcharts
If statements
Loops
Data types
I also want to include some information on skills, so please listen to this video and read this handout about note taking.
Note taking plus other techniques for being successful -I suggest checking out the other links on this page .

ASSIGNMENTS TO DO:

Database assignment to query with SQL: You need to send me the database and a list of the SQL queries you wrote so that if the queries get "Microsoft fixed" I can see what you wrote. I also want you to send me the output that was generated. Remember, the queries have to all be done in SQL. This is not a group project. It needs to be done individually.
Softskills database to query with SQL So I want two things: the database and a printout showing the SQL code and the resulting output.
Group Assignment: Well, I finally got the group project out and I would like it back in two weeks so lets say Oct 21st. If you did not get one it was a mistake or you were so far behind I thought you were not ready. Contact me if you did not get one and want to be part of a group.
This is a group assignment. You will get an email for your group designating a group leader. You can work with email or set up a Zoom account where you can work. The goal is to talk it over and figure out the answers. If you do not get a group assignment, contact me. You have two weeks to do this so due October 21st. The groups will be sent out Wed.
This assignment involves the user interface and logic - it does not get into SQL. This is NOT an assignment that can be resubmitted.
Note: On the flowcharts in the assignment, sometimes the word Technology is cut off and you see Course instead of Course Technology.

INFORMATION:

When is a good time to meet on Zoom. For now I am suggesting Wednesday at 11:00AM.
I had technical problems and was late getting on. I will also try again for Thursday at 11:00AM
I have sent you Milo's Zoom address and his hours. Let me know if you did not get them or have questions.
If you get your login to cisweb, I would like you to upload the page you created to cisweb. If you do not get it soon, then we will extend the due date by a week. See the videos and notes about working with cisweb and WinSCP..
Next we will start looking at Access. This tells how to find Access as part of Office365. It is for an earlier version but I have been assured it still works. Access download using Office 365

There is a lot happening this week so do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need help.

OLDER NOTES ON WINSCP AND CISWEB:
In my notes I talk about cisweb.bristol.mass.edu. Things have changed and you should now use cisweb.bristolcc.edu and the port number should be 220.
You can also check the notes on the Smartboard and the accompanying audio as well as the notes below.
Again: To load things up on the Internet, we use WINSCP. Please read the WINSCP and cisweb information: (note that in my examples I use cisweb.bristol.mass.edu as the host and 22 as the port, we are now using cisweb.bristolcc.edu as the host and 220 as the port.
Here is information about using cisweb and WINSCP at BCC
Talks more specifically about portfolio We will be looking at making a portfolio later in the semester.
If you want to download WINSCP at home, you can find it at this address.

Remember the host is cisweb.bristolcc.edu and the port is 220.

If you need a little extra time, please let me know.
Assignment #1: You need to go into Zoom and talk to Milo or me (if his hours do not work for you) and ask us any questions you might have. Then let me know you went! If you have already met me on Zoom, you need to send me an email confirming it.
Assignment #2: Upload your web page introducing yourself to the cisweb server and send me the address. Extra credit if you experiment with linking and try links that involve subfolders going back and forth and a link to an outside page. Note if you do not get the login information for cisweb and WinSCP this week you can extend to next week.
Assignment #3: Access Resource Assignment
This assignment must be done with the user interface we have looked at in class. It is acceptable to leave some data cells blank, you can make up some data but some of the data should be from the Bristol web site. I messed up on the last code - I confused never used and have used so you can decide which name you want to give it and use that for the queries - my apologies!
Note that even if you get a symbol indicating you can not send it, I can usually forward and open it. You can avoid this by putting it up on cisweb and sending me the address or usually zipping also works or putting a jpg extension instead of the zip and telling me in the email to change the extension back to zip once I receive it. I do need to get the Access database sent.
Check back!

If you are just starting as a CIS major, I recommend that you double check your fall schedule with me if you have questions.
You should have gotten login information in at your Bristol email acount. Please be sure to check for them. We will use them at various points in the course.
Please check the examples, the topic videos and the other resources posted at my site that I list and that relate to what we are covering.
There are lots of resources at my site, some that we will never use. Please use the resources I tell you to use about the current topic beinging covered.When this course runs in class, I record my lectures (under Audio) and capture my notes and examples using Smartboard. These are available some from the Spring of 2020 but mostly from the Fall of 2019. I strongly recomment you look at them as well.
We will look at HTML/HTML5 and CSS this week to develop a web page. Please look at the samples under Examples and reproduced here.
So, to summarize. This week look at the examples under EXAMPLES TO LOOK AT and the explanation of these examples under TOPIC VIDEOS. You should also try out the SMARTBOARD AND AUDIO NOTES so you can hear the lecture and see the notes from the class.

ASSIGNMENTS TO DO:

All assignments must be turned in using priscilla.grocer@bristolcc.edu.
Assignments are due the Thursday of the week after they are assigned. So assignments for this week are due next Thursday, September 29th.
I would try to get it in sooner because their will be a couple of assignments next week. We will be looking at soft skills later in the semester and as a foundation for that, I want you to take this survey:
Survey
The survey has been taken down so I am looking for a replacement to post another week.
Send me an email letting me know you have taken it.
Your assignment for this week:
HTML page to introduce yourself (needs to include CSS)
I should clarify that you should use a lot of the HTML in the examples so you should use things like lists, tables, images, CSS etc to get the best grade. If you use extra HTML that you research and use to create the page you need to explain the commands for extra credit.
Also extra credit for having more than one page and linking them.
Note: You do not need to put your web page(s) on line this week. We will do that next week.
