I think it's bad service, considering I'm paying for it

I never knew that EVIL resided in an Online Course

Oh Holy Crap.
Ok, I will admit that I know Zilch about coding. Zip, zero, nothing, zilch, BUPKIS!
I was looking forward to my "Programing for engineers" course that comes AFTER my Intro to Engineering course that I'm taking right now.

WHY IN THE HOLY FUCKING HELL DOES THE PROFESSOR ASSIGN US 3 COMPUTER PROGRAMS TO WRITE?!
HELLO!?
I have no knowledge of ANY fucking computer languages. Nor do I have a COMPILER PROGRAM! Or anything else at this point.

I know how logic stuff goes... I know how to follow a flowchart. I can do Pseudocode... That's not a problem. I JUST DON'T KNOW A COMPUTER LANGUAGE! I don't know BASIC or PASCAL or JAVA or MatLAB or C++. There are courses that teach those. They're not a prerequisite for this course ya know.

SENDING ME A COMMAND LIST AND TELLING ME TO DO IT DOESN'T HELP!

There are RULES for coding, SYNTAX and SYSTEM RULES THAT I DON'T KNOW!

And the fact that she says "The formulas and mathematical how to do it is in the course guide." IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE STUFF WAS ACCURATE! I'm sorry but i =/= -1 in complex numbers. i stands for the "SQUARE ROOT OF -1." And thats just the tip of the iceburg. Thank gods I remember most of the formulas and how to's. I'd be super screwed if I was rusty with em

I've brought this up to the Dean and the professor BOTH. I get told "That's the nature of the online course." No it's not. I've done online before. Never anything this bad. A wee thing or 2 that's outside the scope is FINE. This is insanely unreasonable. And just wrong.
Who the hell is above the dean? Where do I go from here? At this point I want OUT of this course never to take this professor again. Class ends on the week of the 26th...
