Ed Discussion is an online question/answer/discussion forum we use in this class. You can access it through the link on the course Sakai page or directly at edstem.org. You should feel free to not only ask questions on Ed but answer questions (subject to the same guidelines as the general collaboration policy).
If you choose to use Ed, we ask that you follow the guidelines established for this course.
Office/Helper hours are opportunities for you to discuss or get help directly from the course staff, including teaching assistants and instructors. You might join with questions about particular assignments or about particular topics. With the instructors, you are also welcome to discuss how the course is going, grades, or questions about computer science more broadly.
You will get the most out of office/helper hours if you come prepared, meaning that you have already tried things on your own and have specific questions to discuss. Do not expect that you will be given the answers to problems, instead expect to receive help in thinking through your own problem-solving process. Please read the directions on utilizing office hours.
Regular office/helper hours will begin Tuesday September 5th. Office/helper hours are not available over university holidays such as Fall Break.

|In-person||Monday - Thursday||6:00-7:30pm||Reuben Cooke 126|
|Virtual||Monday - Thursday||7:30-9pm||See "Zoom Meetings" tab on Sakai|
