This course provides the computer science and information science student an opportunity to understand and use PHP to write programs which perform processing of data in files and databases.

Points will be distributed as follows (subject to change):
Exams will consist mainly (but not exclusively) of multiple choice, true/false, and matching questions. Exam schedules will be announced in class. All grades will be included in the final grade. Make-up exams must be scheduled in advance of the scheduled exam date, and they must be taken within one week before or after the scheduled date. Class attendance and participation will be used to determine borderline grades.
Attendance is required. While no points are deducted for absences, you will miss the points for any quiz or assignments you fail to turn in on a day you are absent. If you must be absent, check with the instructor about any assignment that may be due on the day you return. If you miss a day when an assignment is to be turned in, it is your responsibility to turn it in ahead of time.
If any member of the class feels that he/she has a disability and needs special accommodations of any nature, the instructor will work with you and the Office of Disabled Student Services to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure that you have a fair opportunity to perform in the class. Please advise the instructor of such a disability and the desired accommodations at some point before, during, or immediately after the first scheduled class period.
If, for whatever reason, you do not complete this course, you MUST FORMALLY WITHDRAW by filling out and turning in the proper paperwork. The responsibility is YOURS! If your name appears on the final grade sheets and you have not accumulated enough points to pass the class, you will receive an F even if you are no longer attending.

All electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, pagers, palm pilots, beeper watches) are considered unnecessary distractions and are to be turned off and (with the exception of watches) concealed during class. Thus, interacting with these devices during class will not be tolerated. Instructors may make exceptions for instructional purposes. A student who anticipates an emergency and expects to be contacted in class by an outside source must go directly through the emergency dispatch system identified on each of the respective campuses. The emergency dispatcher will take the message and deliver it to the instructor.
A student who fails to comply with this policy will be initially dismissed from the class and (per the Instructor's discretion) may be counted absent. Points may be deducted for work missed during that time. A student who violates this policy a second time will be dropped from the course for disruptive behavior. A student whose electronic device is activated during an exam will be dismissed from the class and denied the opportunity to complete or take that exam. An Instructor may elect not to grade that exam.
