We (and Corky Cartwright) apologize for the problems everyone is having.
But it is an inevitable part of changing systems and "keeping up
with the times". Things will be better soon.
- About the CMS (Course
management system). Please look at this URL: http://cms.csuglab.cornell.edu/
It will ask for your cornell netid and password. After you have entered
it, you should see on the right something like this:
If CS100J appears under "Courses", click on it, and you are
in the CMS. If it says None, then you are not yet enrolled
in the CMS. In this case, email Stacey Shirk at firstname.lastname@example.org
and ask her to register you in the CMS for CS100J.
Do assignment A1 alone. You may do assignment A2 with a partner --we
suggest that you do. In the CMS, there is a way for you and your partner
to forma GROUP. DO THAT WELL BEFORE YOU SUBMIT THE ASSIGNMENT. You can
have a different partner for each assignment.
- Newsgroup. Click

- Making appointments with TAs.
Check here for office hours of TAs and the
instructor. You can make an apptmnt for a one-one-one session with any
TA at the undergrad office (Upson 303) or by calling 255-0982 --24 hours
- Please look at handout 0, which
summarizes what we did in lecture each time!

and TA hours.

Consultants for CS100 live in a corner of the newly remodeled Engineering
Library in the basement of Carpenter Hall, where you may spend a good
deal of time programming. They are there to answer your questions. If
you need help downloading and setting up DrJava, if you have a misunderstanding
on an assignment, if you are having trouble debugging a program in
all such matters, ask the consultants for a quick answer. However, they
will not write your program for you.
The TAs have office hours. If you need some conceptual help of any kind,
go the the TAs during their office hours. Choose any TA whose office
hours are convenient for you, you don't have to limit yourself to your
TAs have a closed office hour and an open office hour. If you want time
alone with a TA because you just don't understand or are falling behind,
then arrange a closed session by calling 255-0982 or going to the undergrad
office (Upson 303). If you just have a question, go see a TA; there
may be other people there at the same time, and you can all hear each
others questions/answers. The closed hours will act like open hours
if no one has made an appointment.
Please feel free to see Gries during his office hours --or any time
that he is there. If he is not working frantically on someting that
has a deadline, he will be happy to chat with you. He also looks at
email and answers it often.
