||CAAM 335 Matrix Analysis, or equivalent background in linear algebra
and MATLAB programming.
||50% problem sets, 50% exams |
| Class participation will be considered when assigning borderline grades,
as will improvement from the midterm exam to the final.
||There will be approximately eight problem sets, each involving both written work
and computational exercises in MATLAB. You are encouraged to discuss these
assignments, but the final write-up (including computer code) must be entirely
your own work. As a rule of thumb, you should spend an hour working
each problem independently before collaborating with a classmate.
You may not consult solutions from previous sections of this class.|
Late policy: Your first two late assignments will not incur a penalty, but each
subsequent late assignment will be penalized 20%. No work will be accepted
more than one class period late without prior arrangement or a written excuse.
(This implies that you may not use two 'lates' on one assignment.)|
||Two take-home, closed book exams will each account for 25% of the final grade.|
These pledged exams must be your individual, unassisted effort.
