Homework #1 and more General Information

More General Information

Computer Science 273 has been broken into two sections. Section 0, the old section, meets from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM on Thursday. Section 002, the new section, meets on Tuesday and Thursday from 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM. The two sections will be synchronized in topics; so, if you can't attend your regular session, you can attend the other. The only exception to this rule may be some exams where you will be expected to work on your own computer.

The final exam for section 0 will be given on Tuesday, December 13, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, and the final for section 002 will be given Thursday, December 15, from 12:15 PM to 2:45 PM.

I have had to change my office hours. They are now Monday to Thursday from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.
