Todays preparation is to qrite down a question that you want answered about the content of this course.

Here you will write at least one fully dressed use case.... and present your work on Thursday.
There will be the last quiz -- quiz 5 -- where you will draw an ERD, tabulate and pseudocode some rules, and write a use case... all for the same domain.

On Thursday we move to [ d4.html ] which shows how to analyse given samples of data and deduce an ideal "normalized" data base for a project. Please bring some samples of data that you can share with the class.
At the end of the Thursday class you will start to carry out the [ project3.html ] detailed design of the data for your project.
The week after we leave data and move on to Rules and Procedures part of the Systems Pentangle

The next class is based on [ c1.html ] and starts with reports on your first step in the project.

In moving from CSE372 to CSE557 the pre-requisties have changed (from CSE20? to CSE330) and I want to enforce the statistics and discrete mathematics requirements. If taking these classes messes up your plan and you are willing to prepare on your own I will set up a readiness test and if you pass I will waive them.
Contact me, face to face, in my office or by the [Contact] button, if this applies to you.
Expect broken links on these pages as I work on them...
The old course archives were in [ ../cs372 ] and will need massive editting to create the new CSE557.
