Recitation: It appears that there will be recitations this semester for undergraduate students. It is the policy of the CSE department that recitations do not meeting during the first week of a semester.

Material Covered: Since the contact hours for graduate students have been reduced from 210 minutes/week to 160 minutes/week, we will likely cover approximately 75% of the material typically covered in this class.
