CS Pathfinders

CS 106A/B Pathfinders


CS Pathfinders is a new 1 unit course that complements enrollment in CS 106A and CS 106B. The  course provides an additional 2-3 hours of problem solving led by an Engineering graduate student (CA/TA). 

The sections are designed to allow students to acquire a deeper understanding of CS and its applications in science and engineering, work collaboratively, and develop a mastery of the material. The group study habits and problem-solving skills will serve as a great foundation for other CS courses.


Students must be enrolled in CS 106A or CS 106B for 5 units, attend all lectures and discussion sections.
