CS 1112: Introduction to Computing Using MATLAB


CMS stands for Course Management System. You will use CMS to submit homework, find your scores, and view grading comments.

If you had pre-enrolled in CS 1112, then your student information had been entered into CMS already and you would be ready to use CMS beginning in the second week of classes. If you added CS 1112 after pre-enrollment, then you must identify yourself in discussion section to ask your TA to add your information into the system.

Log on to CMS

Be aware that CMS is in the process of rolling out a complete redesign, and some course staff may only be familiar with the old version. Also, be very careful about time zones, as CMS sometimes translates deadlines into your local time zone. The course website will always specify things in Ithaca time.
