According to the Hunter College Course Catalog,
"students work in small teams to complete weekly programming assignments under the supervision of an instructor. Assignments are at the level of material covered in CSCI 135 and CSCI 127 though this is not a recitation or review section for either course. Emphasis is on solving problems in a cooperative programming environment."
In practice this course is like a recitation for CSci 135. Each week students have slightly less than two hours to solve a small programming problem in class. Sometimes they work in pairs, and sometimes not.
