Course Content Provides fundamental knowledge of, and practical experience with, database concepts. Includes study of information concepts and the realization of those concepts using the relational data model. Practical experience gained designing and constructing data models and using SQL to interface to both multi-user DBMS packages and to desktop DBMS packages Access 2016.
Learning Outcomes (LO) 1. Differentiate database systems from file systems by enumerating the features provided by database systems and describe each in both function and benefit. 2. Define the terminology, features, classifications, and characteristics embodied in database systems. 3. Analyze an information storage problem and derive an information model expressed in the form of an entity relation diagram and other optional analysis forms, such as a data dictionary. 4. Demonstrate an understanding of the relational data model. 5. Transform an information model into a relational database schema and to use a data definition language and/or utilities to implement the schema using a DBMS. 6. Formulate, using relational algebra, solutions to a broad range of query problems. 7. Formulate, using SQL, solutions to a broad range of query and data update problems. 8. Demonstrate an understanding of normalization theory and apply such knowledge to the normalization of a database. 9. Use an SQL interface of a multi-user relational DBMS package to create, secure, populate, maintain, and query a database. 10. Use a desktop database package to create, populate, maintain, and query a database. 11. Demonstrate a rudimentary understanding of programmatic interfaces to a database and be able to use the basic functions of one such interface.
