COSC430 Lecture Timetable, Semester 1, 2017

Lectures are held 10am–11:50am on Mondays. Venue: Owheo Room G34, unless otherwise indicated.
N.B. Material for use in the Lab sessions is accessible only from departmental computers.

An additional session is being held at 10am–11:50am on Tuesdays. Lab B and G34 are both booked so that there is the greatest flexibility regarding what type of session to run. These sessions are not assessable, but are available for clarifications of questions raised during lectures, or extension, such as the exploration of the readings provided within the lecture notes.
