APSC 111 Tutorial rooms

It is very important that you attend the correct tutorial session and classroom. On your class schedule you will see that there are two class rooms identified with your tutorial session. This is because we have divided each tutorial section in two to provide a better teacher/student ratio, but the class scheduling program was unable to reflect this in your schedule. The division will be based on your student number. If it is an odd number, you will go to one room; if it is an even number, you will go to the other room. The following table explains how to determine which room you must go to for the tutorial:
