But you can only get credit for 8. See [ finals.html ] and [ mock.html ] for more info.
I then add up the points from the 8 questions you've done.
This is less than 200 points.... and I add it to the rest including any bonuses.
Then I apply the procedure in the syllabus [ Grading in syllabus ]

Why -- To uncover the hidden logic in given sample data. And to remove anomalies from your data base/data structures.
No. More like this
However we often create the Entity_name by looking at the prime_keys. But we do not just copy the key name as an entity. Example: studentId is a key for Student, Class has key Class_number, ...
The function of a data dictionary is to provide accurate answers to questions like "What do mean by ....".
It may (I guess) even have use cases in it.
There are many formats. I have my own and there are tabular ones as well [ a5.html ]
There is know way to deduce the structure of data (ERD) from the processing(DFD), and vice versa.
Use ERDs to describe data. They are no good at defining processes.
If you need to define both data and processes.... use a DFD to connect them!

Or this rough draft [ costBenefit1.tif ] (Tagged Information File Format? Scanned from pencil sketch).
Or this [ costBenefit2.gif ] [ costBenefit2.png ] (Calculate PVs of Cash Flows done with Dia).
You also need an OO software development process and a structured process.
Know about TDD!
Right now start at [ r2.html#Use cases on the Wikipedia ] and read the 6 linked pages, and two books that follow.
(and don't try to be too clever).
In this class there are two problems that these web pages are aiming to solve:
Previously, faced with this problem, I wrote a text and the book store published it and charged an embarrassing amount even tho' I got nothing out of the transaction. Asking the campus photocopying service to print copies would kill the CSE budget.
Hence all the pages are in plain static HTML with a few simple styles and forms.
The time is probably right to go to more complex style sheets. The cost (my time is at a premium) of changing 1000 pages to a more complex technology -- say a content management system -- is greater than any expected benefits. A senior project to redesign the look and feel has yet to produce any results I can use.
I could include more interaction. I have a feature in my current system for embedding multichoice review questions -- the only only reason I haven't done them in my current classes is lack of ideas, energy, and time. Here is a sample [ ../cs360/notes/03.logout.html#Questions ] (by the way, the "plugin" link is dead).
Another step forward into rich media looks feasible. But experiments have not paid off. I twice I experimented with including audio -- (1) directly in pages, and (2) as Podcasts -- and wasted the time generating them. The Podcast files took up all the available storage on the web server that quarter as well.
Doing good video, in my experience, takes more expertise and equipment than this campus provides.
