Welcome!
Our Teaching Page
has useful information for students in all of my classes.
It has **my schedule**,
LOR guidelines,
and Usually Useful Pamphlets.
One of them is the
*Checklist* (pdf)
which gives pointers on what I consider to be good mathematical
writing.
Further information is at our
class-archive URL
(I email this private URL directly to students).

Voila the final project (pdf). It was due, slid u n d e r my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) ,

2pm, Friday 7Dec2007 (Pearl Harbor Day) The final project must be

carefully typed.

**At all times** have a **paper copy** you can hand-in; I do
** NOT** accept
electronic versions.

My dog ate my homework.)

Please follow the guidelines on the
*Checklist*
(pdf, 3pages) to earn full credit.

Smiles and nods of approbation met Class-C (pdf), with its gracious yet subtle employment of Greek letters, and its bold use of vertical lines as tasteful accents.

*A Smash Hit!*, say all the critics.Following the box-office success of the two earlier exams, the critics are unanimous in proclaiming this a

*Glorious Hat-Trick*unprecedented in the annals of exam-making. Get YOUR copy today!Even more Astonishingly, one earns genuine coin-of-the-realm CP points (CP = "class participation") by posting a solution or improving a solution.

- Homework-2 (txt), due Monday, 05Nov2007.
- The thought-provoking Class-B (pdf) has been instantiated.
- Applause and acclaim greeted the gorgeous Prereq-A (pdf) with its clean lines, and minimalistic two-tone format. This was the test of prerequisite knowledge.

In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). In the unfortunate event that you miss a class,you are responsibleto get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.

Our textbook is
Linear Algebra and Its Applications
(**Third** Edition **Update**).

On the first day of class I will hand-out a paper syllabus, which has the instructions on how to use the class archive. The archive is at a private URL, only for the use of the students in the class.

Please avoid looking at Past courses with notes, exams and links, which has past versions of all my courses,

Also available are *parts of* CLA pages from *2002, 1998 and Spring 2007*:

.) - Here are the sometimes-challenging Extra Problems (text),
- The terrific Class-C (pdf), is on the street corner. (Naturally, Practice-C (pdf), is still hangin' around.)
- The thrilling Class-B (pdf), has come into existence.
- The fabulous Prereq-A (pdf), exists; this was the test of prerequisite knowledge.

*Project Sum*, had you write Maple or Matlab code
to take as input, a natural number *K*. Your program used
`rref`

to compute the polynomial *P _{K}*(

Project Interpolate (pdf) has you use
`rref`

to compute a minimum degree polynomial
passing through specified points.

Project First-Order Estimate (pdf)
has you use Cramer's theorem to estimate the errors in a column vector *x*.
It is the solution to a matrix eqn. *Ax=b*, but there is some uncertainty
in some of the entries of *A*.
