Weekly calendar

Here is a calendar of all the office hours that the course staff offer. If you would like to speak to an instructor and you cannot make it to their office hours, send an email to set up a meeting. If you have a general question and cannot make it to anyone’s office hours, post to Piazza (see below).

For the most part, office hours are in ISEC, and staff members will have the same office hours every week. On Monday and Thursday evenings, we will have multiple rooms in the ISEC building. Before going to someone’s hours, check where they will be on the calendar below. Should there be a change to someone’s hours, there will be a post on Piazza and the calendar will be updated.

Piazza

Piazza is an on-line forum for class discussions as well as announcements. Anybody can post a question and anybody else can reply, and you are expected to read announcements from the course staff. You will recieve an email when crucial announcements are made, otherwise Piazza will default to your email settings (which you can configure by clicking the wheel in the upper right corner).

To sign up for Piazza, click the link above.

Before posting, check whether or not your question has already been asked. If it already has been asked and has not yet been answered, provided the question is not more than a day old, it likely will be answered soon. Do not double post.

Posting any parts of a solution to any parts of a homework assignment is considered cheating. You don’t want to do this. Limit your answers to other students to providing clarity when needed and hints when appropriate. This is good practice should you ever want to be a tutor :)

Note: anonymity on Piazza is implemented to make you anonymous to students but not to staff members.

    Tutors hold office hours and group meetings in colleges and labs, grade homeworks and provide feedback about the class’s progress. In general, they are undergraduate and graduate students who know that to learn something really well, you need to teach it.

Other Languages

If you feel that you would benefit from help in another language, we have some staff who are willing and able to help. Below is a list of the languages we are able to accomodate and who you should go to for help in that language.

Email

When you need help with the lecture material, the lab material, or the problem sets, don’t despair—there are plenty of ways to get help.

A meeting with a tutor, TA, or instructor is the best to get explanations because you can ask questions in real time and get answers to them.

If you have a question that you prefer to ask in a non-public setting, feel free to send email to anybody on the course staff.

Note that we may post anonymous excerpts from your mail message on the blog if we consider it of general interest. If you want the message to remain completely private, be sure to request it when you send an email.
