For this Discussion Board, please complete the following:

You have been asked to design a database for CTU, which includes three entities (tables): Students, Faculty, and Courses.

Note: A course refers to a particular course section. For example, the current CS251 you are taking is one course instance (e.g., CS251-01), and another CS251 section is another course instance (e.g., CS251-02). It should also have session information (e.g., 2101A).

Discuss the following:

  • Identify 2–3 attributes for each entity, and describe the relationships between the entities.
  • To help you with the discussion above, provide a summary using the following template table: (Please see the attached photo for the template table)
  • Why is the selection of entities and attributes so important during the design phase of a database?
