  1. 1. PCTE Computer – I (BMHCT) 1 PCTE INSTITUTE OF HOTEL MANAGEMENT COURSE – PLAN (Jul 10 – Dec 10) SUBJECT: Computer - I CODE: BH – 107 CLASS: BHMCT – 1st Sem. TEACHER: Mrs. Maninder Kaur (MN) Course Description: This course includes introduction to computers that focus on classification of computers, characteristics, hardware and software concepts, operating system and then we’ll have hands on practice in learning MS-DOS and Windows. More specifically, we will cover the following topics:  Computer Fundamentals  Characteristics and classification of computers  Generations of computers  Components of a Computer  Primary and Secondary Memories  Input / Output Devices  Software Concepts  Operating System Concepts  Introduction to MS-DOS  Introduction to Microsoft Windows Course Goals: The basic objective of the course is to introduce the students to the world of computers and computer technology and to give the knowledge about the basic concepts of operating systems, World Processing, Database, presentations & Networking. The students will learn fundamentals of computers, their characteristics and classification, develop an understanding of hardware and software concepts and have knowledge about input/output devices. This course makes you familiar with MS-DOS and also with graphical interface of Microsoft Windows.
  2. 2. PCTE Computer – I (BMHCT) 2 Grading: MSE: 8 marks Hourly Tests: 6 marks Class Tests: 3 marks Assignments: 3 marks Total: 20 marks Rules for Assignments: Purpose: The assignments will primarily be practice problems for the exams. Thus, you should not collaborate on it with others by splitting the work and sharing answers. You will gain the most benefit from doing it by yourself. You can, of course, ask me for help. If someone in the class asks you for help on assignments, handle the situation as if you are a course instructor. Don’t just give them an answer, but make sure they know how to find the answer on their own. If I feel that people have submitted answers that are merely copies of each other, I will grade the one solution and divide the credit for it equally among the copies. Due Date: As indicated in the course break-up below. Late Policy: You must do your work on time because we'll be correcting/discussing it in class. No assignment will be accepted after the due date. If you know that you have a specific time conflict, make arrangements with me in advance for a separate assignment for late submission. Format: All assignments should be done according to the following format:  Assignment must have a cover page including title of assignment, subject, date of submission, students name, class, roll no. and submitted to.  For a sample of cover page, visit my website  Use loose sheets with one side plain and other side lined.  Write questions/headings with black pen and other text with blue pen.  Draw diagrams (if necessary), neat and clean with pencil on plain side of paper.
  3. 3. PCTE Computer – I (BMHCT) 3  Pages should be numbered.  Mention Contents at the beginning and References at the end of each assignment. Tests: Tests can be oral/written/open book. Open book test is so that you can look up formulas or data from the text or lecture notes. You need to be sufficiently familiar with the material in the book to know where to look up the information that you need. The purpose of the exams is for you to demonstrate that you have attained an operational level of understanding of the material. The tests will be conducted on the dates mentioned in the course break-up. No extra test will be conducted for the absentees. If you have any time conflict for the test, contact me in advance so that we can make sufficient arrangements. Keep in mind that there will be no improvement test at the end of the semester. Therefore, it’s your responsibility to give test on time. Class Participation: A large component of your learning takes place in class. The actual concepts of computers are fairly simple, although their implementation is often complicated by real-world constraints. Thus, I tend to give lectures to explain these concepts, and pose questions for discussion that are meant to draw out these implications. I will guide discussion, and add information here and there as necessary to carry the discussion forward or to lead it into a digression that adds depth in a different direction. I will frequently have in-class exercises that you will do as individual/groups. Thus, it is very important that you attend class regularly. I will keep attendance throughout the semester. Please let me know in advance of any scheduled absences. Classroom Policies: Following are the classroom policies and they are meant to be strictly followed:  Be punctual for the class; try to minimize your disturbance if you are late. I may reject students who come after 15 minutes from the scheduled time.
  4. 4. PCTE Computer – I (BMHCT) 4  Student coming late will be considered as late arrival and I will record late arrivals on the day’s attendance.  Three late arrivals equals to one absent. And then entry will be permitted only if you sign an application from the director.  Mobile phones are not allowed in the classroom. If any student found using the mobile phone, he/she has to pay Rs. 200 as fine in the account office.  During lecture delivery, if you have any kind of query, just raise your hand. Queries are important for the understanding of the concepts. So, do ask queries but make sure they are relevant to the subject.  Be disciplined in the classroom and don’t make any noise while we are studying.
