OS Proceed to Chapter 3

On November 30 (ah more than tweeks from now), we will proceed to Chapter 3 "MEMORY MANAGEMENT" and should cover up to Section 3.3 "Virtual Memory." These sections are your reading assignments.

In this class, students are not allowed to submit exercise problems after the class. This means you should have some extra hours between classes (compared to other classes which allow you late submissions). Please use this time for reviewing the materials taught last week, and preparing for the class next week.

OS Execise Submission Rule Amendament for Mid-Term

We set the following rule on the Execise submission in the Syllabus:

If a student miss more than three (four) exercises by the mid-term (final) exam, he/she will automatically fail the course. One excuse can be granted if the reason of absence is out of his/her control and proved by an official document (such as doctor's note).
This semester, we have a tight schedule between last two execises and the mid-term exam. Therefore, we will change the above rule as follows:
To take the mid-term exam, each student must have two or more valid execise submissions (graded as 0.5 or higher) for Execises 1 to 4.
One exception can still be granted with a supporting document as mentioned above (original rule). Please check your grade at the grade page (maintaind by the TA; internal access only). If you ask for the "one execuse" rule, contact the instructor immediately.

OS Examination Policies and Rules

For the mid-term exam planned next week, please read Examination Policies and Rules again throughly. "I didn't know this..." can never be an execuse for violations to the rules.

OS You may need a calculator

For the mid-term exam next week, you may need a calculator. Please note that you MAY NOT use a smart phone as it has more functionalities than calculator.
