Homeworks

All homework should be done individually unless explicitly stated in an individual homework assignment. It is acceptable to ask simple questions of other people, but do not collude or work together closely. All dead sources are acceptable, however (e.g., books, journals, Internet web sites, calculators, and computers). There is a lot of homework from the textbook. There will also be on average one computer lab per week that is based on using either Microsoft Excel or Matlab.

Homework should be turned in at the beginning of class on the due date (or beforehand).

Hints

Unless specified, read the chapter (and all before it) that the homework comes from. It is a really good idea to read chapters before I lecture on them. You will get considerably more out of my lectures.

Computer Labs

We will one computer lab day per week on average. Once in awhile, two labs in a week. The assignments are due one week after the initial lab day unless specified otherwise. You will need to email me your files to complete the labs. Send me all of the files that will demonstrate that you have completed the lab. This includes .xlsx (Excel) and .m (Matlab) files. Gavin and I will load and run your files ourselves. It helps to name your files something like p1.m, p2a.m, p2b.m, p3.xlsx, and so forth.

Important: Put MA 2200-09 Lab ## in the subject line of your email message. If you collect all of the files into one packed file (e.g., .zip, .tgz, etc.), please name your file yourlastname.zip. Do not forget your attachment. I will send you a Got it email message as soon as I see your message. If you have not heard from me in 24 hours, send me a note with no attachment asking if I received your work.

Exams and Quizzes

First, review tips-for-test-takers.html. The advice offered is timeless, particularly the remarks about sleep the night before an exam. Exams are to be done individually without help form other students. You may ask questions of whoever is proctoring the exam, however. The exams are open book, open notes, and dead sources. Normally, no electronic devices will be allowed.

Exam1

This is an early exam on a small portion of the course, namely chapters 1 and 2. The emphasis is on chapter 2. The exam will give you help on seeing what I expect you to know from a limited part of the overall course and it will give me direct information on which students really know the background material and which ones need help immediately in order to master the remaining material in the class.

 

Cheers,
Craig C. Douglas
