Welcome to CSCA08

Tutorial 30: Wednesday, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM, at IC326.

TA name: Prantar Bhowmik

I will update this website on a weekly basis. All code written in class will be made available here.

There may or may not be quiz held in the tutorial so please be on time.

You can attend any practical held by any CSCA08 TA. I'll be at:

Practical 002: Monday, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM, at BV471.

Email Policy

My email address is prantar.bhowmik@mail.utoronto.ca. I will be checking my email every night. But before you email me, consider attending a practical or post the question on Piazza as you will get a much faster response there.

If you email me, use your utoronto email, any other email address will go directly to spam.

Also, in the subject write "CSCA08" to increase my chances of responding.


I always like to know how you feel about my teaching style. Feel free to leave anonymous feedback here
