Objectives
Letter grades follow the traditional scale (90's are A's, 80's are B's, etc.) However, I reserve the right to incorporate participation for a student's benefit. Blackboard will be used to post grades.
Tuesday  Thursday 
Jan 27 Introduction and 1.1Systems of Linear Equations HW1: Sec.1.1 #13,15,19,21,23,25, and ask Matlab: Why? (i.e. find a computer with Matlab installed, launch Matlab, at the prompt enter why, and press return.) Record Matlab's answer. Does repeated querying yield insight?
