Times and places
Sections are mandatory. You must go to the section in which you are registered. If you miss more than two of them without a good excuse, preferably discussed with your section instructor ahead of time, your course grade may be reduced one level (e.g. B to B- or A- to B+).
Sections will be held in the ACCEL LAB in Carpenter Hall (enter through the Engineering Library). You will be given an assignment to do on a computer, which will be checked off by the section instructor. The goal is to give you every opportunity to become fluent in the use of Java and Matlab and to get you to learn importance concepts within a week of their introduction. For those students who can get through an assignment quickly, we will have more advanced and interesting things for you to do.
Besides giving use practice on the computer, sections will also be used to:
First prelim: Thursday 24 February, 7:30--9:00PM.
