Introduction

The main goal of these classes is to show, how does the work in computer science industry look like. During the course we will simulate stressful situations, associated with:

  • A lack of time /!\

  • A lack of competence
  • A need for proper organisation of team's work (what and who has to do it?)

A course will end setting up a project, which will be realised in the next semester.

Classes

  • The classes are strictly connected to lecture, on each class it is assumed that student knows material discused on the lecture
  • All exercises are done in the group of 4-5 people (important: at most 2 foreign students are allowed to be in one group)

  • A leader of the group has to organise work for his/her group (in particular he/she should provide language assistance to foreign students)
  • Groups have to be changed on each classes, this means that working in the same group on different classes is forbidden
  • You are allowed to have at most three absences, however because of the organisation of the classes there is no possibility to gain points for classes on which student was absent
  • The tasks which have to be done during the classes are on the lecturer's wikipage (Strona przedmiotu -> Materiały na zajęcia -> Zajęcia N -> ĆWICZENIA).

  • Additional rules are given on lecturer's wikipage.

Solving tasks

  • Solutions should be placed on group eduwiki page by the end of the classes
  • Group eduwiki page will be created at the begining of each classes after receiving the message from the group leader (to: mwalas <at> amu edu pl)

  • In the message you should place:
    • Names and Surnames of group members
    • Index numbers of the group members
    • Information who is the leader of the group (the leader should be put at the begining)
  • A list of group members with names, surnames and index numbers should be put on the group eduwiki page
  • Group members are allowed to edit group eduwiki page, the leader is the page administrator
  • Solutions can be written in Polish or English
  • Please don't change group page template
  • Preferred file extensions:
    • Text documents: pdf, odt, doc
    • Archives: 7z, tgz, zip
    • Spreadsheet: ods, xls
    • UML: jude, jpg
    • Other: mpp (Microsoft Project)
  • /!\ Please convert all diagrams (jude, uml, schedules) to JPG format, and put on on eduwiki webpage two files: original file and converted (in JPG)

Marks

  • The tasks will be evaluated for the next classes
  • Evaluation will be put on lecturer's wikipage (Strona przedmiotu -> Materiały do zajęć -> Zajęcia N -> Punktacja grup)

  • Short comments will be attached to each task's mark (comments can be omitted in case of highest possible mark)
  • Whole group gains points for tasks (there will be no individual tasks)
  • In case of the detection of plagiarism a group will receive zero points for all tasks (there will be no judging who is the author of plagiarism)

I was absent, can I get points for classes?

There is a possibility to get points for classes on which you were absent (if your absence is reasonable, e.g. you were ill). You can use this possibility only once for the semestre. You will get a medium diffculty task (e.g. prepare a document, diagram) which will be connected to the topic of the classes on which you were absent. The procedure is:

  1. You inform about the absence, and its reason on classes
  2. We set a date when you will do your task (Tuesday 12-13 or Wednesday 15:15-16:15)
  3. I send you an e-mail with the task, which you should do in short time (aprox. 45 minutes from the time I send you an e-mail)
  4. I receive an e-mail with your solution.

Rules:

  • You can use this procedure only once per semestre
  • Your absence must be reasonable (if you were ill please show me some medical certificate)
  • /!\ You have to inform me that you were absent, and want to receive points for the classes, during first classes on which you are present

  • This includes only classes 1-9
  • You will get at most 2 points for classes
  • If you send me your solution after time is up you will get 0 points

Tips - how to achieve success?

  • Assign tasks to group members according to tasks difficulty, some tasks are more difficult, some are easier to solve, the strategy: "one student = one task: is no the only possible strategy
  • Save time! There will be always not enough time
  • Ask your group members what are their competencies
  • If you don't know something: Ask /!\
