First Computer Project: is
here
and
here .
Computer Project Due Mon May 17
These are a maple files. You are to do the exercies is groups of two or
three, including text so that the file is readable. Also you are to
contribute (as a group) a web page on the editible CoWeb about
this project, or about similar problems. This will be due on or
about May 122.
Directions for the Computer Project:
- Download the maple projet(s) on the 2803 web page.
- Work the project in groups of two or three
- Hand in a printed copy of the worked project o n the Due Date.
- Include in the printed version lots of English Text explaining what you are doing and why.
- Create of CoWeb page detailing your group's experience, trials, tribulations, and suggestions. To do this:
- Go to the 2803 web page
here.
- GO to the CoWeb link here.
- Go to the Math2803 Computer Project 1 link
- Edit that page by adding your group's name between #'s.
Like #Maria Calas, Birgit Neilson and J Sutherland#
After you do that, hit save.
The page will now have a link that looks like Maria Calas, Birgit Neilson and J. Sutherland?
- Go to this link, and your CoWewb page will be created.
Edit there. Flat text if fine.
Your CoWeb page should contain:
- A description of the problem in English
- The mathods that you used to solve the problem.
- Any problems (computer problems, maple problems, group problems, etc...) that you encountered in
working the project.
- Any useful hint you have for others.
- Anything else you want to add.

Please feel free to add what you want. Extra credit available.
Important!!
We have a special Math (tutoring) Lab for 2803 students in Skiles
171. The hours are
Tuesday and Thursday, 11 - 3
The lab will begin on
April 6. It is very important that you take advantage of this.
Math 2803 really has too much stuff in it for a three hour course.
You should spend an hour or two each week at this tutoring lab. Think
of it as the Tu-Th recitation section.
Here is the official syllabus for Math 2803. Please feel free
to share this syllabus with students in other sections:
Math 2803
- Taylor approximation, Infinite Series and Taylor Series, 10 lectures
Reading: Grossman, Chapters 9 and 10. Start with Taylor approximation, sections 9.4
and 9.5., and do L'Hopital's rule as an application of Taylor approximation, and avoid
the mean values theorem discussion in the book.
The key concept to focus on here is approximation -- working with the
remainder in Taylor"s theorem and inequalities.
- Introduction to matrices, linear functions and linear equations, 5 lectures:
Reading Anton Chapter 1 and Chapter 4. The focus hear should be in Gaussian elimination and Matrix algebra.
- Determinants: 1 lecture Reading Anton Chapter 2. One lecture on
determinants.
- Vector Spaces: 5 Lectures Reading Anton - Chapter 5, focus
on R^n
- Least Squares: 2 Lectures Reading: Anton Sections 6.4 and 9.3
- Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues: 3 Lectures: Reading Anton Chapter 7
and sections 9.1,9.5, and 9.6.
Grading:
The grade for the course will be computed as follows:
- Approximately 6 open book one half hour quizzes. 65 points.
- 1 computer project: 10 points
- Final exam (open book and notes) 25 points.
Since I have never taught this specific course before I have no old
tests. However Professor Andrew's old test for the course are here:
Note that some if these test contain some material not in
the current course outline... Outlines change.
This should give you some idea of the material and level of the course.
All these tests are from
Professor Andrew's 2803 Page . Thanks, Fred, for allowing me
to use these links.
