Where To Get Help
The purpose of this page is to list the help resources that are
available in CS312
CS312 is a large class and you, the students, are responsible
for a lot, including knowing you need help and seeking out that help.
Here are the resources that are available to you.
- The class web page: The web page contains the
with slides, and assignments.
- Post a question on the
class discussion group:
If you have a question your classmates can often help you out. The instructor
and TA monitor the class discussion group as well and if you have a question, chances are
other people do to.
Email the instructor: (or the
TAs). Feel free to email me questions as well. See the
syllabus for the TAs emails.
- Lab Hours: The instructor, teaching
assistants, and undergraduate proctor all hold lab hours in the microcomputer
lab in the GDC 3rd floor computer lab. Come see us for help.
- ACM Tutoring - 6:00 - 7:30 pm, Mondays, Tuesday, and Thursdays,
in GDC 2.402 and 2.410
- Residential Hall Study Groups: There
are tutors in the Jester dorm to help with the class material Monday -
Thursday nights: 7:30 - 10:30 PM.
These tutors will not help you do your assignments. Rather they are there to
help with the short answer exercise suggested in the book, the Practice It and Javabat
problems from the schedule, and to help study for tests.
- Tutoring: Students can also get help from the UT Learning Center. They
offer appointment tutoring
for CS312. Don't wait for the last minute to try and
get help from these tutors. The UT Learning Center does not offer drop
in tutoring for CS312, so you need to be proactive and sign up for a tutor if
you even think you may need help.
- Helping yourself. To know whether you need help or not you must do the
readings, try to do the suggested exercises from the book (listed on the class
schedule) and attempt the Practice It and
listed on the class schedule.
