Former Section B Students: Make Sure You Are Registered
If you had originally registered for section B of CSE 191 and your records do not indicate that you are registered for CSE 191 anymore (please check this on MyUB), then you should send email to Jaynee Straw (email@example.com) including your name, your person number, and the registration number for one of the section A recitations.
Start on HW1
Generally I will formally announce each homework the Friday before it is due, but feel free to start forming groups (remember you can and should work together!) and look at the problems from HW1. After lecture on Friday (8/31) you will have everything you need to solve these problems, but feel free to read the book for this info as well.

A Note about Instructors
I (Adrienne Decker) am the official instructor for this course. However, I am currently home enjoying my new baby. I will be back on October 1. In my absence, Albert Goldfain has been assigned to act as instructor in my place. During my absence, all correspondence about course issues should be directed to him. Decisions on the grading of coursework and exams has (when possible) been done in consultation with me. Therefore, his word on grading issues is final in my absence as well.
