Posted Sunday, December 20, 2015[SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT]

 

Unofficial Final Examination Results for course have been posted on the mark page of this site.  I have taken time to go through most questions of each paper.  Some grades for students who have done all course work and on the border line (<1) and who have completed all course work, may still be adjusted before I submit grades to the Registrar’s office as I said in my first class. To see the class grade distribution, scroll down to the end. And as announced earlier, Exam Viewing sessions are still  mounted tomorrow for:

Monday, Dec. 21, 2015  --- From 10:00am  to 4:00pm  in ER 2125.

You do not have to go to see your exam paper as we have spent a lot of time today (over 12 hours with 13 of us marking) to ensure there are no errors during marking.  However, the hours are already covered (supervised by the GAs) and if you are around and would want to check, you are encouraged to do so.  Also, check your email as I sent a detailed email on this issue to you not too long ago.

When you go for viewing, log in your specific requests, include your email address and lab section, and I will look into all of them when time permits.  I look into all valid requests for reviewing a specific question for a specified reason you have identified and I will respond to you later via email. Booking an appointment to see me is not an option now, please. I am away also in two days for a long time.

These are the only Viewing sessions for the course.  I am on sabbatical leave in January and will not be able to entertain any requests for final exam viewing.  Please take advantage of this final exam viewing if possible.

Make-up final exam is given to only those pre-approved for it by me, and is scheduled as announced earlier in the new year for Friday, Jan. 8, 2015, 1:00 – 4:00pm in ER 1115.

I WISH YOU ALL A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

REMEMBER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO GO TO ALL CLASSES !!

WATCH OUT FOR Information Regarding an Important Scholarship Competition called NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (USRA) which is posted on the CS Announcement Link as soon as it is out.  It normally comes out right about now. The CS graduate secretary would announce once out.

You are encouraged to apply for this scholarship award if your gpa is close to 85% or higher at the end of the term.  You can talk to me about this if interested.

Note that the week of Nov. 23 is the last week of labs and we are running that week’s lab as non-mandatory (informal lab). Thus, you can go if you have questions for the GAs but you do not have to go. A lot can be done during the informal lab to prepare for the final exams (e.g., the practice final exam in the book), to practice more on arrays, your assignment 6, discuss your lab exam and lab attendance totals, and discuss lab exercise 9. This lab in particular, provides you with the opportunity to ask individual questions on course topics in preparation for the final exams.  Thus, students are encouraged to attend their lab on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday if they need to.

Students are encouraged to check their marks on the web, carrying totals going into the final exam, and report any discrepancies early to me via email (cezeife@uwindsor.ca).  

I have posted all tests, assignments (except assign 6 which will be added when ready) and labs solutions and all chapter class teachings are supported by electronic examples on the simple example link of the course web site.

Other Events: Lots of exciting activities going on in class this coming week or next including completing student evaluation of teaching SET and possibly class pictures after final examination review.  Note that the final examination review exercises can only be obtained from the class and are not posted on the web.

CONSULTING HOURS:  A lot of hours have been made available the entire term.  There is a GA/TA available in the JAVA lab, most hours from 10:00am to 5:20pm on Mondays to Thursdays, to assist with assignment questions and clarification of concepts discussed in class.  There is also electronic consulting available 24-7 with MEG (mostly electronic GAs) Abedal Alkhateeb with email: alkhate@uwindsor.ca.  You can send questions to the MEG GA via email and they will respond as soon as possible and not generally later than 24 hours after receiving your questions. My office hours are: M, 2:00pm – 2:50pm, 5:00-5:50pm Tue: 1:00 – 2:00pm, Thurs: 2:00-2:50pm after study week. (in LT 5105). For details on all available consulting hours, open up the consulting hour page through the course main page.

NOTE THAT LAB EXAM IS COMING MONDAY, TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY (Nov. 16, 17, and 18).  GO TO YOUR LAB TO DO THE EXAM (or lose 5% of course marks).  You can check the sample lab 10 exercise in the book (pp. 283-285) for the format of the lab exam and what to expect. Lab exam covers materials from chapters 1 to 8 up to single dimensional array. Basically, there are two questions, first to be solved with simple programming constructs (like scanf, assignment instructions and if-else instructions and without functions).  The second question is to be solved with arrays and repetition and any other needed instructions and with functions. You do not work with your lab group during the exam.  You work alone. It is an open book exam and thus, you can use your course book, your old programs, materials from course web site previously printed.  YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE THE WEB BROWSER OR EMAIL DURING THE LAB EXAM.  Not a big deal, just another lab.  The GAs are there and you can receive minimal help if you are stuck but you may get deducted if you are offered a lot of help. The GAs are busy and will have to mark and get mark for all students and thus cannot spend too much time with one student needing too much help.

GOOD LUCK!!.

For details on all available consulting hours, open up the consulting hour page through the course main page.

Hints on Assignment 5:

Hints on how to solve assignment 5 was provided in one of the last classes.  Basically, this assignment is a counter-controlled loop problem and can be solved with a for-loop although while-loop and do_while loop instructions can also be used. It is simpler than Lab 7. The draft solution provided without function is given below.  Fill them up and try to complete with function as in the assignment 5 requirements and submit.

The input and output data for assignment 5 can be seen as rows of data given the n (e.g., 3)  number of taxes to be computed.

The draft program for main is:

int main (void)
{

// Declare the i/o variables here
float taxrate, income;      // tax rate and income
int knt, numtax, taxbr;  // knt for counter, numtax as number of taxes to compute and                                            //taxbr for the tax bracket of the income.

float  tax;                  // income tax to be computed

 

//user types the number of taxes to be computed
          

scanf(“%d”,&numtax);

// the main repetition instruction starts here to process one income at a time.

for (knt = 0; knt < numtax; knt++)
               {

            // first read the income to process

            scanf(“%f”,&income);

            // then, using the given tax table, compute the tax bracket of income                                //using nested if instruction.  Full solution should be calling function                                 //tax_brack_id.

 

 

            if (income < 0) taxbr = 0;   // outside allowed range

            else if (income < 10000)  taxbr = 1;

                        else if (income < 20000)  taxbr = 2;
                                    :

                        :

                                    else taxbr = 6;

//Now compute the tax using tax_calc function with switch_case instruction

switch (taxbr)
{

case 0:  printf(“invalid income\n”); break;
case 1:    tax = income * .05; break;

            :

}          // end of switch_case instruction

// Now print the income and tax using PrintAll function before going to next          // income

:

}     // end of for loop

return  0; 

}  // end of main.

Also draw and submit your flowcharts.

***

Of course, you need to provide all other required components like solving with functions, proper decision instruction such as switch_case instruction, etc as specified on the assignment.

You can come to my office to review your midterm exam if you wish on Monday,  Tuesday, or Thursday during my office hours.  Solution to the midterm test will be posted on the web soon after Tuesday evening.

This is no time to miss classes.  Quiz 2 and final exams are harder exams worth 52.5% together and students with A average going into the final exam have failed the course before because they stopped going to classes and keeping up with decision, repetition, arrays and other topics being discussed later in the course.  Thus, students are encouraged to keep up with the work.

 

Note: if you got less than 50% in the midterm exam, I specifically invite you to come and see me during my office hour or book  a counseling appointment through the CS secretary, Ms Pat at pat.prieur@uwindsor.ca.  Send email to cezeife@uwindsor.ca asap.

 

Hm!  The voluntary withdrawal date is Mon., Nov. 16th and you do not want to keep an F (< 50%) or F- (< 23%) on your transcript as those are hard to get rid of, later.  If you are having difficulty with this course or any course, consider dropping the course by the voluntary withdrawal date and in particular, schedule to talk to a CS academic counselor by calling the CS undergrad secretary at ext 2991/2990 or visit her to schedule appointment in room LT 5114/5115.

 

Note that Quiz 2 for Section 01 will be written in Toldo 102 on Nov. 12 during class time at 11:30am for Lecture Section 01 (and on Monday, Nov 9 at 8:30pm in ER 1118 during class time for Lecture section 02).

 

Lab 7 is done this coming week of November 2, 2015.

 GO TO ALL CLASSES !!!

 

MIDTERM TEST IS ON FRIDAY, OCT. 30 AT TOLDO 100  (for section 1) and TOLDO 104 (for section 2) AT 7:00 – 8:30PM.  TEST COVERS MATERIALS FROM CHAPTERS 1 TO 4 (LECTURE SLIDES 1 TO 108).  Solution to sample midterm test on pages 304 to 310 of book is already posted on the course web site through test solutions link. I will not include flowcharts though.  I will save that and the rest of new materials following chapter 4 for Quiz 2.

 

Assignments 1, 2 and 3 solutions are posted and Labs 1 to 4 solutions are posted, the simple example link is also useful.

 

My office hours are: M, 2:00pm – 2:50pm, 5:00-5:50pm Tue: 1:00 – 2:00pm, Thurs: 2:00-2:50pm after study week. (in LT 5105)

 

This week, in particular, I will like to see all students who did not hand in their assignments 2 or 3 during my office hours.

 

Lab the week of Oct 26 is Lab Exercise 5 (on decisions, use the book to solve it as we continue to do it class). But note that the Lab 6 (informal lab) could not be accommodated in the schedule this year. Thus, we shall be doing Lab exercise 7 upper week or week of Nov. 2 and must continue to complete repetition as well.

 

Ensure you complete assignments 3 and 4 as those will be helpful in preparing for midterms.  And remember that it pays at the end to do all course work because, if at the end, you need less than 1% to be rounded up to the next grade point and you had completed all course work, you get that advantage.

For Students Using Macintosh Computers (ssh on mac) who are still having difficulties connecting to cs servers with NoMachine, you can connect with ssh which should already be installed on the Mac OS.  Simply open a terminal window (under Utilities in the Applications folder), and then type the

ssh  uwindsor_userid@cs.uwindsor.ca. You can also use the sftp command to transfer files. If you want a better front-end to those commands, look at: Jellyfissh (http://www.freemacware.com/jellyfissh), Fugu (http://fugu.en.softonic.com/mac). 

 

 

For students not at all connecting to our cs servers with NoMachine, please, go and request an arc1.uwindsor.ca UNIX account through the same web site you activated your account at www.uwindsor.ca/userid. Then, select the 7th option on the left column to “create an Arc1 Unix account”.  If it goes successfully, it will take 24 hours for you to be able to connect to arc1.uwindsor.ca using your ssh.

Activating your Computer User Accounts and Accessing your Webmail 

Labs begin on Monday, Sept. 21, 2015.  Make sure that your computer user accounts are  Activated by going to : www.uwindsor.ca/userid

And to access your email, go to url: http://webmail.uwindsor.ca

 

How to Connect to CS Servers (cs.uwindsor.ca)

On how to connect to our Computer Science servers called alpha.cs.uwindsor.ca, bravo.cs.uwindsor.ca, charlie.cs.uwindsor.ca (or generally as cs.uwindsor.ca) to do your work, these servers have just been updated this August 2015 with new Ubuntu OS and we are no longer able to connect to the cs servers with the secure shell client (ssh/sftp) program.  We can still connect to the University-wide server (called arc1.uwindsor.ca) maintained by the ITS with ssh client although the compilers in that system might be slightly older.

 

To connect to cs.uwindsor.ca servers remotely and be able to transfer files, you need to download NoMachine. The NoMachine Player (client) is available for free on many platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android and iOS (iPad tablets).  It can be downloaded from nomachine.com and we have some instructional videos for users at help.cs.uwindsor.ca under the “SERVERS” section. Read below for specific details.
To download NoMachine and access the instructional video prepared by the CS technicians, go to the cs download help link at:

1.     http://www.help.cs.uwindsor.ca/en/servers, click on servers, then NoMachine to find the download link: https://www.nomachine.com/download.  Then, download the NoMachine suitable for your own device. 

2.     Then listen to the instructional video on that CS download help link on how to set it (NoMachine) up properly on your device.  In summary, ensure that you set the protocol to ssh(not nx) and that you connect to nx.cs.uwindsor.ca (not cs.uwindsor.ca) during set up.

3.     The working alternative most similar to the old SSH client you may be used to is the Bitvise SSH Client. Please visit http://www.help.cs.uwindsor.ca/en/servers/remote-access/secure-shell/ for an instructional video recently created by Steve Karamatos on installing the clients found at http://www.putty.org/.

4.     You can also download the Fillezilla secure file transfer protocol by following the instructions on the cs help link for Fillezilla or through the link: https://filezilla-project.org/ (download the Fillezilla client).

 

How to Use NoMachine  to  connect to CS Servers (cs.uwindsor.ca) and Run a C Program

1.     Follow the instruction in the cs help centre link for connecting to cs.uwindsor.ca servers with NoMachine if not yet familiar.

2.     You now have a virtual machine interface similar to what you see in the machines on campus in the Java lab or the West Leddy Library lab. Then, left click on Applications on the top menu and select System Tools, then, Mate Terminal.  This creates a terminal for Unix/Linux commands on a white background.

3.     You are now ready to type your Unix/Linux commands for editing with a text editor (e.g., gedit findsum.c), compiling a C program (e.g., cc findsum.c) and running a C program (e.g.,  ./a.out).

4.     If you want a copy of your source program file or any file in the remote cs server brought to your local home PC, you can then use NoMachine to transfer the files or Fillezilla to transfer the files.

 

 

How to Connect to UWindsor ITS Server (arc1.uwindsor.ca)

If you want to back up your work on the main UWindsor server which we can still connect to with stable but old ssh program, download this program from the ITS download softwaredepot by following the instructions below.    

To download, ssh secure shell client,

1.       go to www.uwindsor.ca/softwaredepot

2.                 then, log on with your Uwin userid and password, then search for ssh secure client, ssh secure client for download

3.                 do automatic installation of ssh on your system.

 

The ssh secure shell client will enable you log on to arc1.uwindsor.ca campus machine, which has the C compiler and the text editors that you can use to work on your assignments and lab exercises from home.  With the ssh secure client running on your PC/laptop at home.

 

How to Use ssh client  to  connect to arc1.uwindsor.ca and Run a C Program

 

To log on to the campus University Information Technology Services, ITS server  arc1.uwindsor.ca, you need to have activated and requested an arc1 account  through the  userid link of www.uwindsor.ca/userid.  It takes about 24 hours to take effect, thus, do it early so you have a back-up.

Do:

1.       open the ssh secure client Program and on the window, click on Quick Connect, then, when prompted,

2.       type the server name as:  arc1.uwindsor.ca and then your                                   computer user name and password to log on.

3.       Once connected, you are ready to type a simple program using a text editor like pico on Unix/Linux command line

          (e.g., pico findsum.c). 
E.g., experiment by typing a simple program to find the sum of two numbers in C. 

 

For students using Macintosh computer, you can check section 1.7 of book on how to use ssh with Mac or follow the steps in the following file SSHonMac.

We shall be going through some of these processes in the lab (Lab Exercise 1 on pages 260 – 285 of course book) and there is no need to worry.
