Final Week

Complete the Final Survey and the official UW course evaluation by 11:59 PM Sunday, December 8. Student feedback informs the design of future offerings of the course, improving the experience for everyone. If 80% of the entire class completes both the Final Survey and the official UW course evaluation, everyone will receive 1 extra credit point. While the UW course evaluation is completely anonymous, your student ID is collected in the Final Survey for the Last Remark. All other feedback will be anonymized.

The Final Exam Study Guide was posted last week.

The guerrilla section this week starts 5:30 PM Friday, December 6 in CSE 403. Our sessions last anywhere from an hour to two hours, so feel free to come and go as you please.

We will also have final exam review office hours 4:30 - 5:30PM Thursday, December 5 and 1:30 - 4:30PM Monday, December 9 in the CSE 5th floor breakout. If you can’t make any of the in-person sessions, we are also offering online office hours through Zoom Saturday, December 7 3:00 - 5:00. Just click to join!

Additional homework extensions were announced on Piazza.

HW 8: Seam Carving has been released and will be due 11:59 PM Tuesday, December 3. While this homework is due two weeks from now, please start early so you have sufficient time to study for your finals. Update: you have one submission per hour to the autograder.

The office hours schedule can be found in the Schedule. You can also meet one-on-one with a TA or the instructor outside of office hours. Each staff member is allocated a few hours per week to meet with students outside of office hours to discuss anything on your mind. In the past, students have found it helpful to discuss how they’re doing in the course and how to improve learning efficiency. The Allen School also maintains a form for submitting anonymous course feedback.
