- The ELMS/CANVAS site will contain this syllabus, HW assignments (and solutions),

Midterm Exams (and solutions); also, any other reading or similar material will be posted there. - The class EMAIL REFLECTOR will be used frequently; it is an IMPORTANT responsibility

for each student to insure that the e-mail address listed on Testudo

(from which the reflector is constructed) is updated to one that you read daily.

- MATLAB will be used in every HW assignment.
- It is assumed that you know MATLAB at the level it is used in lower level

Math Department courses (e.g., Math 246).

- Homework and Quizzes - 35%
- Three (in-class) MIDTERM EXAMS - 30%
- FINAL EXAM - 35%

- Midterm #1 - Thursday, October 02
- Midterm #2 - Thursday, November 06
- Midterm #3 - Tuesday, December 09
- FINAL EXAM -- Friday, December 19, 2014 ; 1:30 -- 3:30 PM

TESTBANK (the Math Department's online archive of past exams)

- HW papers are to be written by you, in your in own words
and using your own calculations.

However, you MAY discuss the problems in small groups. - The same policy applies to MATLAB code.
