Syllabus and Course Schedule
This course explores how databases are designed, implemented, used and maintained, with an emphasis on industrial and commercial applications. We focus on the relational database model and learn the mathematics of structured queries. Students will gain experience with a commercial database management system, and will work in teams to design and implement a prototype database system for a local organization.
Late Homework will lose 10% every day up to a maximum of 50% late penalty.
We will use bCourses for homework submissions, and grade listings.
bCourses also allows discussions between students and posting to instructors (public as well as private messages).
Homework/Quiz Submissions will be in Softcopies in the bCourses course page unless specified otherwise.
In case a hardcopy submission is requested, it will be collected in class. If you miss class for any reason on the day of Hardcopy submission, Mark LATE [DATE and TIME] on top with an explanation, and put the assignment in Mo Zhou's mailbox outside IEOR office (4141) on the 4th floor of Etcheverry Hall.
We strongly encourage the use of message boards on bCourses.
