UMBC CMSC 313, Computer Organization & Assembly Language, Fall 2002, Section 0101

Lecture Topics

These are the actual lecture topics that were covered during the semester, as opposed to the syllabus which was the original plan.

Each topic below is a link to a web page that contains an expanded topics list for the lecture that day and source code for any programs shown during lecture. The page for each lecture will be updated after the actual lecture is given.

For a preview of the lecture topics, you may follow the italicized links to the page for a similar lecture from last semester's class. However, actual coverage will likely be different from semester to semester. Also, note that this semester's topics are covered in a slightly different order from last semester.
