Teaching Assistants

TA assignments are made with the following constraints in mind:

  • We need many more TA’s for the intro courses than for the upper-level ones.
  • Only required upper-level courses get TA’s; the other (elective) courses get graders, instead.
  • For intro courses, a typical TA assignment involves one weekly discussion (for 8-9 weeks) plus one weekly lab (for 6 weeks).
  • Since there are more lab sections than discussion sections in the intro courses, a few TA’s will be assigned to two labs (and no discussion).
