CS 1112: Introduction to Computing Using MATLAB

Academic Excellence Workshop

The Academic Excellence Workshop (AEW) offers an opportunity for students to gain additional experience with CS 1112 course concepts in a cooperative learning environment. Research has shown that cooperative and collaborative methods promote higher grades, greater persistence, and deeper comprehension. The material presented in the workshop is at or above the level of the regular course. We do not require joining the CS 1112 AEW program, but do encourage students to join if they are seeking an exciting and fun way to learn. The AEW carries one S/U credit based on participation and attendance. The time commitment is two hours per week—no homework will be given. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to seek extra help on course topics in a small-group setting.

Your fellow undergraduate students, who are familiar with the CS 1112 material, teach the sessions with material that they prepare. Our course staff provides guidance and support but does not teach the AEW course content or any session.

There is one S/U credit for the CS AEW, based strictly on attendance. You will be allowed three non-excused absences.

The following sessions are offered:

Core Course AEW Course No. Section No. Time Location
CS 1112 ENGRG 1012 SEM 102 (10053) M 2:40-4:35 PM (Online)
CS 1112 ENGRG 1012 SEM 103 (10054) W 7:30-9:25 PM (Online)

Enroll online during the add period. Space is available, but may fill up quickly. If there are no spots available in a section that fits your schedule, use the link included with the course listing in the registration system to get on a waiting list. To add an AEW after the add deadline, go to the Engineering Learning Initiatives (ELI) office at Rhodes 175 to get an “add form.”
