Course Staff

The instructor for Com S 362, is professor Gary T. Leavens. The TAs are Brett Graves and Dalei Li. Please do not hesitate to ask either of us questions.

The fastest way to receive an answer to a question is to phone Gary Leavens, or to email both of us, by using cs362s@cs-DOT-iastate-DOT-edu (replace `-DOT-' by `.').

Due to the vast amounts of spam from networked email providers like hotmail, yahoo, etc., if you send email from one of these providers, we can't guarantee that we'll read it quickly or notice it (although we will try at the beginning of the semester). For fast responses, please send email directly from an Iowa State computer, or send an email to us before you have problems, so we can put you on our "non-spam" list.

During the semester, we will hold weekly office hours at the times listed below, and by appointment. The office hours were scheduled to provide a variety of meeting times. Please let us know if none of these times work for you and we will consider revising the office hours schedule.

If you need to drop off an assignment or a note and we are busy or not in our offices you can leave it in the department office. The office staff there will note the current date and time and put it in Gary Leavens's mailbox.
