00700 ORGANIZATION OF THE COURSE
00900 This course consists of lectures, homework (Most of this will
01000 consist of LISP problems to be solved using the PDP-10 and with
01100 evidence of success handed to the grader), a midterm examination, a
01200 final examination, and a term project. The midterm will occur on
01300 November 5 and the final examination on December 16. Projects will
01400 be due on the day of the final examination. It is possible to get a
01500 grade of B+ or Pass in the course without doing a project, and the
01600 grade of INC will be given only under exceptional circumstances.
01700 Therefore, those who aspire to some flavor of A should start their
01800 projects early. Projects may be done either using the PDP-10 or the
01900 IBM 360.
02100 I am usually to be found in the afternoon at the Artificial
02200 Intelligence Project, (on Arastradero Road between Page Mill and
02300 Alpine Roads), X4971, and will normally be available for brief
02400 consultation after class.
02600 The teaching assistant is Mr. Gunnar Grape. His office hours
02650 are after class in Polya 202. He can also be found at the AI-project
02750 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Mostly in the afternoon. The
02850 extension is 4971.
03200 All texts plus extra copies of handouts, assignments, etc.
03250 will be available from one of the secretaries in Room 102, Polya
03375 during secretarial working hours.
03600 The texts for the course will be the LISP 1.6 Programmer's
03700 manual, the REDUCE manual, and the Course Notes. LISP is available at
03800 a price of 2$, REDUCE will be available soon, and successive chapters
03900 of the Course Notes will be distributed as they become available. The
04000 price of the Course Notes is page-dependent, but 25 cents per chapter
04100 seems likely.
