About me About you Say Cheese! Quiz Number 0 Background in Algorithms Jeff Linderoth IE170:Lecture 1 Class Overview Meeting Times: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 11:10AM-12PM, 375 Packard Lab. Office Hours: ( Please try to use them). Monday 10:00-11:00 Wednesday 10:00-11:00 By Appointment (610-758-4879) Course HomePage: http://www.lehigh.edu/~jtl3/teaching/ie170 I will post outlines of lecture notes there before class. But not necessarily much before. Syllabus dates are somewhat tentative Jeff Linderoth IE170:Lecture 1 Course Details Learning is better if you participate. I will call on you during class. (Gasp!) A portion of your grade depends on your participation. Labs and Problems Sets The best way to learn is by doing. ⇒ I give lots of homework. Don’t be late! 10% Grade penalty for every late day. No exception! Quizzes: Scheduled on an “as needed” basis. If I sense you are working independently and making good progress on the labs and problems sets, we will have fewer quizzes. Jeff Linderoth IE170:Lecture 1 Labs Labs on Monday from 1-4. You should plan on spending the entire time working with the help of the T/As.
