Informatics 2B: Lecture Schedule

Semester 2

Lectures start in Week 1, i.e., the week starting 11 January 2016.

Notes and slides are linked from this page. Slides are given both as "full" (one slide per page, easier to view on a screen) and as "multi" (typically 4 or 6 per page, saves on paper if printed).

Note and tutorial packs: please collect a complete set of notes and tutorial exercises from the ITO before the start of the course; you will be inform by email once these are ready for collection. You will need to present your matriculation card for this (and so will not be able to collect on behalf of others). Each student is entitled to one pack free of charge.
