Fall 2016 Lecture Sections for CS 111

The Computer Science (CS) department offers 3 sections of CS 111, an introductory course targeting students who have no (or very little) previous programming experience. All three sections cover the same topics with slight variations on subject matter. You can sign up for any section.

  • "Intro CS plus law". Lecture: TR 11am - 12:15 pm CRN 40307. CS Instructor: Sloan. (This course!)
This section and programs will be about various legal and public policy issues, ranging from predictive policing to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The course will be team taught by a CS professor and a local law school professor, and will include substantial introductory legal content. Programming language- Python.

This section and programs will be about biology, ranging from DNA and genes to population dynamics and evolution. The course will be team taught by a CS Professor and a Biological Sciences professor, and will include substantial introductory biology content. Programming language- Python.

  • Traditional. Lecture: TR 2 - 3:15pm CRN 34656. Exclusive (CS) Instructor: Troy
This section will take its examples from digital media, especially image and sound files. Programming language- Python for Fall 2016.

Students who are outside the College of Engineering and not considering a Computer Science major are extremely welcome to join CS 111 or may wish to check out the somewhat similar (but less intense) course CS 100.
