Discussion of advanced computer architecture and•systems required as a foundation including caching, pipelined processors, CISC/RISC/Hybrid, virtual memory and•multi-tasking. •PREREQUISITES • CSIS 2520, CSIS 3510, CSIS 3600•REQUIRED TEXTBOOK: • Client/Server Information Systems, Goldman et. al., WileyIntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•INSTRUCTOR: • Dr. Hoganson • Office: Science & Math #516 • Phone: 499-3402 (voice mail not working)•OFFICE HOURS: • See the schedule on my home page.IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•EVALUATIONS: There will be a midterm and a cummulative final exam. The midterm will count 35%, and the final•40% of your course grade. One presentation will count 10%, assigned homework from the textbook 10%, and class•discussion participation (5%) will count for the remaining 25%. • Midterm: 35%• Homework 10%• Presentation: 10%• Final Exam 40%• Class participation 5%• Total: 100%IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•The grading scale for this course is:• 90-100% A (10% range) • 75-89% B (15% range)• 60-74% C (15% range)• 50-59% D (10% range)• 49% or less F •The tests themselves will be discussion and problem-solving. In preparing for exams, please keep in mind that my I do not operate a 24/7 answer service by email. Please ask your questions in class, before class, after class, in my office during office hours or by appointment. I will however, try to respond to email questions, but keep in mind that I do not check my email every five minutes. An email on the same day of an exam will not be answered, and an email the day before the exam is far less likely to be read and answered in time for you to receive a reply. There are busy times when I don't check email every day. That is, you may send the email before the exam, but if I don't check email until after the exam, the answer won't do you much good. Email questions should be a last resort!IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•ATTENDANCE POLICIES: Attendance at all classes is highly encouraged. Concepts and ideas discussed in one class•are used as building blocks for more concepts and ideas in the next class. A student can get behind very easily by•skipping classes, resulting in a poor understanding of the material, which will show up as a poor grade for the class. Any•class sessions missed by the student are the student's responsibility to make up, not the instructor's. •Makeup exams or tests will NOT be given, instead, the final exam will also count in place of the missed midterm.•Missing the final will result in a grade of 'F' for the course. Failure to complete a presentation will result in a zero for•that part of the course points. •Presentations MUST be completed and given on time.IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•WITHDRAWAL POLICY: It is the student's responsibility to fill out a withdrawal form and obtain all required•signatures if the student wishes to withdraw from class. Students who cease attending class but do not withdraw will•receive an F for the class. •ACADEMIC HONESTY: As per the Kennesaw State University catalog, CHEATING, PLAGIARISM, AND•COLLUSION are prohibited. Students ARE allowed to consult with each other and provide help and assistance when•needed, so long as the it falls short of collaborating on a joint project. It is imperative that each student do their own•work on assignments, in order to reap the full benefits of the learning experiences being offered.IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•Every KSU student is responsible for upholding the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct, as published in the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs. Section II of the Student Code of Conduct addresses the University's policy on academic honesty, including provisions regarding plagiarism and cheating, unauthorized access to University materials, misrepresentation/falsification of University records or academic work, malicious removal , retention, or destruction of library materials, malicious/intentional misuse of computer facilities and/or services, and misuse of student identification cards. Incidents of alleged academic misconduct will be handled through the established procedures of the University Judiciary Program, which includes either an "informal" resolution by a faculty member, resulting in a grade adjustment, or a formal hearing procedure, which may subject a student to the Code of Conduct's minimum one semester suspension requirement.IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•ELECTRONIC DEVICES: In order to minimize the level of distraction, all beepers and cellular phones must in silent•mode during class meeting times. Students who wish to use a computer/PDA for note taking need prior approval of the•instructor since keyclicks and other noises can distract other students. Recording of lectures by any method requires•prior approval of the instructor. Calculators will NOT be allowed during exams.IntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. Hoganson•Tentative Syllabus (Ongoing development - Subject to Change)•We will cover many topics from the textbook. Some material covered will be covered in more depth than in the•textbook. • Chapter 1: introduction and overview • Chapter 2: Review of computer architecture• System Layer Concept • Transistoras a switch • Layer 3: system devices • Layer 3: system devices • Layer 3: CPU • Layer 4: computer architecture • Example test questions • CPU DesignIntroCSIS 4490 n-Tier Client/Server ArchitecturesDr. HogansonChapter 2 continued•Modern System Performance
