There will be 2 exams, a couple of quizzes, 2 assignments, 1 team presentation, and 1 book chapter writing.
Each exam is worth 15% of your grade to a total of 30%.
Each assignment is worth 15% of your grade to a total of 30%.
Turn in your assignments on the due dates in class, or ask for an extension which will cost you a few points.
Each quiz is worth 2-5% (depending on the number) to a total of 10%.
The class is on a chapter of your choice and is worth 15%. You may do it alone or within a team of 3-4 people. A team is recommended. Peruse the book as soon as possible to make your choice.
To form a team it is recommended you do the personality test and choose partners who have different characteristics than you.
The presentation should be done at the time the chapter is scheduled. Please let me know on which section you intend to present.
Alone, or with the same team, you will be asked to write a book chapter on Operating Systems in general. It will be graded on a 15% basis. The content may be the same as of your presentation, an expanded version, or a different topic. Make sure you discuss this with me so no overlap occurs.
Note that book chapters have been written by my students last year. Your task is to review the related chapter in several texts and rewrite it more clearly, with no mistakes, adding charts and graphics where appropriate, and make it your own. The number of pages should be 5-20 double-spaced.
The final grade will be decided on a curve.
Border line cases will be decided based on your class participation.
We are having a new textbook this semester: Operating Systems, Internals and Design Principles, by William Stallings, 3rd edition, Prentice Hall, 1998.
