Honors Section

Are you a student in the UW honors program interested in learning more about how computer scientists view the world?

If so, you may be interested in joining Hélène for an honors experience linked with CSE 142. We will meet weekly for 1.5 hours to discuss broader issues in computer science and beyond. This quarter, most of our conversations will be around readings from Nine Algorithms that Changed the Future: The Ingenious Ideas that Drive Today's Computers (which you will need to purchase) and additional online articles.

The only requirements for the honors section will be to complete the readings and actively participate in our weekly discussions. Honors students who successfully participate in the honors section will receive honors credit for 142. They won't be graded differently in the course or be asked to complete more work beyond the readings but their transcript will indicate that they took an honors version of CSE 142.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please fill out this survey by Tuesday 3/27 at 4pm to indicate which meeting times would suit your schedule.
