A degree in any major with a substantial background in computer science is required; a computer science major is preferred.Contact me by email at suma umn. Communication : Most online communication with the course staff should be done over Piazza, whether that be asking for help, requesting information, or submitting regrade requests. You can find the link to our Piazza course here:. Each day there will be at least 2 TAs assigned to watch over Piazza from am - pm.
They will monitor throughout the day and some questions may be answered the next day if you post later in the evening. The monitors will try and respond quickly but in some cases there may be a delay of a few hours, since they will be not watching every minute of the day but checking throughout the day. If a question is not personal in nature and does not require you to post your code, then you should choose the Entire Class option when you post it, since it is likely that someone else has the same question especially clarification questions regarding homework instructions.
Do not post code to the Entire Class: if your question requires you to post code then it belongs in a private post to the Instructors. Piazza questions should generally be limited to questions that have reasonably short answers: in-depth questions should be asked at office hours. If you're asking for code-specific help, be sure to post your code along with your question, and specify what sort of things you have tried and any theories you have on what the problem might be.
Office Hours: Every TA and the instructor have office hours specifically for helping students posted at here: Office Hours. You can go to any office hours listed there; you don't have to restrict yourself to the office hours of the TAs from your lab. The class meets every Tuesday evening from - PM, and is based entirely on attendance: there are no tests or homework. While in CSCI we mostly focus on how to write Python code, CSCI is about computational thinking: particularly the process of breaking down problems and finding a step-by-step solution, a skill that applies across any programming language.
I highly recommend it to anyone who isn't confident in their ability to succeed in this class. For more information, please check out the sample syllabus for the class from a previous semester, when the class was called CSCI instead of CSCI Throughout your career, you will acquire a broad range of skills and knowledge in computing.
My goal is to help you understand how computing can be applied to problem-solving in any discipline, to introduce you to core concepts in computer science e. This is an introductory course while some of the students in this section have programmed before, these experiences are so diverse that I do not assume any prior knowledge of programming. After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:. This means that an average student will need to put in 12 hours of work a week in order to receive a C in the course.
To get a higher grade, expect to put in more time or work more efficiently. Lecture Attendance and Participation: Lecture attendance and active participation are required and will be tracked using the iClicker remotes or mobile app.
There should be a total of 39 lecture days unless there is a weather cancellationand each will be scored out of 2 points; one point for attending class, and one point for participating in all the exercises during that class. I will drop your lowest 3 grades to accommodate for the occasional absence. Thus, lab attendance and active participation are required and will be tracked and graded by your lab TAs.
It is generally not possible to make up labs even with a university-approved legitimate absenceso if you have missed or know that you will miss three or more labs for university-approved reasons, email me immediately and we'll discuss your options. See the link at the bottom of this syllabus for what constitutes a legitimate absence at this university. Labs will be graded out of 3 points. In most labs, there are four segments of increasing complexity: Warm-up, Stretch, Workout, and Challenge: after completing each segment you or your partner must raise your hand to be checked off by one of the TAs.
Completing the lab generally means finishing all four segments, OR completing at least the first three segments and working on the fourth until the end of lab.College of Liberal Arts.

The program requires a total of 31 credits consisting of 6 credits each from the three emphasis areas: statistics, algorithms, and infrastructure and large-scale computing; 9 credits in approved electives; 1 credit of research colloquium; and 3 credits for the capstone project.
Students must complete a capstone project supervised by a faculty member. One of the key features of the MS in Data Science curriculum is a capstone project that makes the theoretical knowledge gained in the program operational in realistic settings.
During the project, you will go through the entire process of solving a real-world problem: from collecting and processing real-world data, to designing the best method to solve the problem, and finally, to implementing a solution. Examples of projects and the wide variety of topics they cover can be found on the research page. You may be asked to provide a CV for that potential advisor. Your final project report will be approved by a committee of three faculty including your advisor and including at least one member of the Data Science faculty.
If not already on the Data Science faculty, your advisor may like to join they should send a short CV to the DGSotherwise you will need to find a current member acting as a co-advisor to approve the final report. In any case, the three committee members should represent at least two different departments.
You will also be expected to give a short oral presentation on your project open to faculty, students and other interested parties. See Courses for a list of classes satisfying each category.
