In the slides and videos section below, I will post slides and pre-recorded discussion section videos before 6PM on the day before the live discussion section. In a discussion section video, I will primarily present information regrading up-coming programming assignments. I will also post live discussion section videos there.

A live discussion section is conducted by a TA. Since we have two TAs this summer session, most likely, they will alternate in leading the discussion section.

  • Fri 10:00am - 11:10am on Zoom (Zoom meeting ID given here)
During a live discussion section, the TA will answer questions about the pre-recorded video and answer your questions about programming assignments. If you have a particular topic that you would like the TA to discuss in class (including stuff like something covered in lectures that you would like the TA to explain further), you should send e-mail to the TA before 6PM on Thursday. The TA will try his/her best to cover such requests.

To download all the PDF files below in one command (so you can study for exams), do the following inside a terminal in Ubuntu 16.04:

    wget -r -l 1 --user=USERID --password=PASSWORD
where USERID and PASSWORD are the user ID and password used to access protected content from our class web site. But please note that the lecture slides can change at any time without notice. Therefore, it's a good idea to re-run the above command often to synchroniza your copy with the server!

(Please note that access to discussion slides and videos are restricted.)
