Course Requirements

1. Class Attendance: Class attendance is mandatory. Part of your grade will be
determined by attendance and participation. It will be difficult for you to pass the class if
you do not attend regularly. You need to try and notify me in advance by email when the
absence is anticipated, and as soon as possible after an unanticipated absence.

2. Class Participation: I encourage you to use the World Wide Web and the library for
researching System Analysis & Design and current breakthroughs occurring in that field.
Feel free to raise issues and be prepared to discuss your ideas in class. You should not
expect to play a passive role in this class.

before the end of the semester. Details on format, content, etc. will be given on the first
day. We will cover at least one new chapter each class so plan on reading two chapters a
week. I shall discuss them on the day they are assigned. For the papers if you have
trouble with your writing you are encouraged to use the resources of the Shepherd
College Writing Center (; 876-5293).
