Stuck? Confused? Falling behind? The course staff is here to help!

Piazza. The best way to ask a short question about the course materials is via Piazza, an online forum in which student ask (and answer) questions. Please do not email your preceptor with such questions; use Piazza. The course staff monitors this forum regularly.

Office hours. For more substantial questions about the course materials, you should attend office hours. You're welcome to attend any staff member's office hours, not just those of your preceptor.

Computing lab. Undergraduate lab TAs are available in Lewis 121 to answer general computing questions. They can assist you in debugging, provided you have first made a reasonable effort to identify the bug and isolate the problem.

This schedule may change. We will update this calendar with the latest information when we need to make scheduling changes. Though last-minute changes are rare, we encourage you to check back here before going to office hours.
