- Here is a Final-Exam-Study-Guide indicating which topics are important for the final exam.
- Here are some examples of questions that have been used in previous final exams.
- Course schedule during the coming weeks (written Oct. 30)
- I have to attend the CASCON conference organized by IBM and NRC in Toronto this coming week in order to present our ongoing research project. Therefore I have asked Dr. Amyot to give the lecture this coming Tuesday. I will be back from Toronto for the lecture on Thursday.
- I have updated the course schedule (see http://www.site.uottawa.ca/%7Ebochmann/SEG3101/schedule.html ), indicating in red some details about the coming weeks. In particular, please note the following:
- We lost the lecture on the Thursday before the mid-term exam. Therefore I would like to ask you to study, on your own, the topic of Structural Modeling, a topic which you should already partially know and for which you find the reading material and course note slides on the course web.
- Dr. Amyot, this coming Tuesday, will talk about Use Case Maps (a topic he knows very well).
- Next Thursday, we will talk about the first part of Requirements Management (in order to give you a better preparation for the lab session this Thursday, which is about requirements management using the DOOR tool)
- The week after, we will talk about Behavior Modeling - Part 1. This will include modeling with UML State Diagrams, which is the topic of the lab during that week.
- The mid-term exam will be on October 23 (Saturday) from 9:00 to 10:30 (just before the study break). The room is SCS E217 (Sport Complex Building). Note: Some students will write their exam one hour earlier. They should arrive at the same room for 8:00 AM.
- First Lab will be on September 19. Note the new location above. - There will be a tutorial/lab session of approximately three hours every week.
- September 9: The course starts today.
