Notes and Homework
Assignment Submission Standards
To permit me to concentrate on the content of your
assignments, material handed in for marking must be easy for me to identify.
I have prepared a set of Assignment Standards, which you will
find as a button on my academic home page: http://idallen.com/teaching/
See the Lecture
Notes created by Alan Pinck for this course. Many students have
found that these notes are sufficient to understand the material, and that
purchasing the (expensive) course textbook is unnecessary. Not all
students have this opinion.
Greatest Common Divisor (GCD)
Alan's lecture notes refer to a GCD algorithm. For more information
on this algorithm, see the GCD pages in: http://www.idcc.net/canisius/cs110sp99/Class04/index.htm
See the Homework
Exercises created by Alan Pinck for this course.
Tests and exams are based on these homework questions. Not all
relevant homework questions will be assigned as homework in class.
Conversely, not all of the homework questions on the web will deal with
material we actually cover in the course - sometimes we skip over sections and
don't cover that material. You are not responsible for material not
covered in the lectures.
The Course Projects are not the same between different sections of this
course. Make sure you get the correct Project from your own section and
your own instructor.
Computer Math and Number Systems
This course requires a background in high-school mathematics: using and
doing math on numbers with exponents, adding and subtracting negative numbers,
converting numbers between different bases, etc. If you need assistance,
