Homework and Collaboration

Homework will be posted weekly in the Problem
Sets section of the class website. Assignments will be due on Thursday, BEFORE 4PM. Part of the homework is online at MITx, see below.
Please put them in the box for your section in E17-131.
Please staple them (you may use the math stapler). They are due every week except exam weeks and are returned in recitation.

Late homework will not be accepted and no extensions are granted.
However, your lowest homework grade will be dropped.

The homeworks are essential in learning linear algebra. They are not a
test and you are encouraged to talk to other students about difficult
problems---after you have found them difficult. Talking about linear
algebra is healthy. But you must write your own solutions.

MITx

Online homework questions (including MATLAB questions) will be posted at MITx later in the semester.

Exams

Many students find the second exam more challenging than the first exam. It is not surprising to see a much lower mean on the second exam as
this part of the course trains students to go past the mechanical and computational, emphasizing the conceptual and the ability to tackle new problems.

The use of calculators or notes is not permitted during the exams.
Taking another course at the same time is not an excuse for missing the in-class hour exam.
There will be no make-up exams in this course.

Concerns about homework, grading, exams: see your recitation instructor.
