Discussion Sections - CSCI 402, Spring 2017, All Sections

Each discussion section is conducted by a TA. Below is a list showing which TA is responsible for which discussion section: During a discussion section, the TA will present information regrading up-coming programming assignments. If you have a particular topic that you would like the TA to discuss in class, you should send e-mail to the TA before 5PM on Thursday. The TA will try his/her best to cover such requests.

Please note that programming assignments are due on Fridays. Since you are expected to have finished the an assignment before its due date, on the due date of a programming assignment, the TA will be introducint the next programming assignment and that takes priority over the current assignment. If there is time left, the TA can discuss the current assignment.
