You are expected to attend lecture twice each week. However, the 9:05 and 11:15 lectures are identical and you are permitted to attend either one of them. Regardless of which lecture you choose to attend, you should be aware that we may use iClickers, which may count toward your participation grade, on any lecture day.
Discussion Sections (Labs)
Discussion sections (Labs) are mandatory. 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 are all held in the ACCEL LAB in Carpenter Hall. The entrance to the ACCEL Lab is through the former Engineering Library. You should enter on the ground floor, walk straight until you can go no further, then go up the stairs on your left.
As part of the lab, you will be given an assignment to do on a computer that will be checked off by the section instructor. The goal is to give you every opportunity to become fluent in the use of Python and to get you to learn important concepts within a week of their introduction.
Besides giving you practice on the computer, sections may also be used to:
If you have your own laptop, you are welcome (and encouraged) to bring that to lab, as it can free up some space in the room.
This course will have two prelims and a final. The times and places of these exams, as well as the times for the review sessions, are given on this page.
