CDS 101/110a Schedule Recitations FAQ ()

The purpose of the recitation sections is to provide additional insight into the material for the week, including answer questions on specific topics of interests to the students in that section. The TAs leading the recitation will generally work through one problem from the homework set (same problem in each section) so that students can see what is expected on the homeworks and how the tools from the course can be applied. (Note: students must still work through and turn in the problem that the TAs work through and what you turn in must reflect your understanding of the problem.)

Recitations for CDS 101/110a will be on Fridays from 2-3 pm unless otherwise noted. Each recitation session is tuned for a slightly different audience and we have made initial assignments based on the course you are taking, the option you are in, and your class standing (So, Jr, Sr, G1, G2, etc).

Section 1: CDS 101

This section is designed for students who do not have lots of prior coursework in linear algebra, ordinary differential equations or complex variables. All students in CDS 101 are iniitially assigned to this section. TA: Luis Soto

Section 2: Ae/ME/BE practical

This section is intended for students who are interested in the application of feedback and control to mechanical and electro-mechanical systems such as airplanes, cars, robots, etc. TA: Sawyer Fuller

Section 3: CS/Info

This section is intended for students who are interested in the application of feedback and control to information systems, such as queuing systems, economics and computers. TA: Julia Braman

Section 4: Theory

This section is intended for more advanced students who would like a more theoretical description of some of the tools of the class. This section will not go through a problem from the homework in much detail, but will instead discuss more advanced approaches to the topics being considered for that week. TA: Elisa Franco

Section 5: Off Schedule

This section will be offered at a time other than Friday 2-3 pm. It will focus on engineering applications of feedback and control. TA: Hines
