Students can sign up for an optional "CSE 190" programming lab for a 5th CSE credit to
the CSE 142 course. In this lab, each student will work at a computer for 60 minutes once per
to solve programming problems. A TA will be available in a Zoom chat room to help answer
You will be asked to read the textbook material for the Monday lecture prior to attending the
which should take approximately 30 minutes each week.
CSE 190 is intended for students who want extra help or extra practice working with the CSE
142 material. It is optional. If you sign up for the 190 lab, every Tuesday
you would join a Zoom chat room and work on CSE problems at a computer for 60
minutes (prior to attending the lab, you should read the textbook reading assignment for the
Monday lecture just before the lab).
CSE190 is a CR/NC pass/fail course. You get the credit by showing up and
working on the problems. A TA from our course will in the Zoom chat room to answer
We try to have a relaxed atmosphere open to collaboration,
sharing information, asking questions, working together, etc.
Note that our sections are CSE 190 sections "T", "U" X", "V", "W" and "Y".
The labs take
place on Tuesdays at various times. Here's the link to the University time schedule with
more info about the times/places:
Schedule, CSE 190
To get credit for a lab, you must attend the corresponding lab session. If you show up
more than 10 minutes late for a lab, then you will not get credit for that lab. You
should read the textbook material listed under the class calendar for the Monday prior
to the lab.
You do not have to complete all of a lab to get credit. The labs are designed to have
more material than a student can complete in 60 minutes, so complete as much as you can
in that time.
You must complete 7 labs to get credit for 190. There will be 9 labs total.
During the lab, you should not be working on anything else (no chats, email, Facebook,
homework for other classes, etc). And you should not be working on the CSE142 homework
during the lab. If you fail to stay on task, it can result in a loss of credit for that
If you end up withdrawing from CSE142, then you need to also withdraw from CSE190. You
can't get credit for CSE190 if you aren't taking CSE142.
