Ground rules and Assignment sheet (the exact due dates are given on webassign!).
Follow these procedures for homework:
- All due dates are listed within WebAssign. No late homework will be accepted!
- Every Wednesday at the beginning of the class turn in the starred problems from the assignment sheet (which you solve by hand) and the Matlab problems (must include a printout of the Matlab session) .
- The sheets must be stapled together (Matlab+Handwritten) and your name should be written in CAPITALS on the first page.
- Submit all other (unstarred) problems: through WebAssign.
Students will need to download the Matlab files matdat1.m, project.m and invert.m in their Matlab directory in order to complete some of the Matlab homework. Find those files here!
