CSC172 is URCS's Data Structures course. It has the standard curricular content of such a course, with the addition of TA-led programming laboratories and peer-led Workshops. Normally the "H" suffix denotes "honors", but an "X" for experimental would have been more accurate.
The nineteen 172H students in Fall 2014 were all first-semester freshmen (class of 2018). They had passed a Java proficiency test (a subset of the CSC171 final exam) during orientation. In teams, they undertook a term-long Project, including team selection and organization, project planning and development, reports, and final public presentations. The term project was all in place of CSC172's normal professor-assigned set of 4 or 5 different programming projects. Otherwise 172H students had the same lectures, labs, workshops, and exams as 172 students.
This website features the projects from all five teams.
