Welcome! This is an honors section of CSE143; it is a
one credit class that will be graded CR/NC. In particular,
any and all assignments will be graded on effort-not results.
The course is discussion-based, and each week we will discuss
a different topic related to Computer Science. The topics will
vary from reading a book to learning how to solve cryptograms
to discussing what the difference between humans and computers
is. A draft of the syllabus with more details can be found
