Homework will be posted weekly
in the Problem
Sets section of the class
website. Assignments will be due on Thursdays, BEFORE 4PM.
Please put them in the box for your section in E17131
Please staple them (you may use the math stapler). They are due every week
and are returned in recitation.
Late homework will not be accepted and no extensions are granted.
The homeworks are essential in learning linear algebra. They are not a test and you are encouraged to talk to other students about difficult problemsafter you have found them difficult. Talking about linear algebra is healthy. But you must write your own solutions.
Concerns about homework, grading, exams: see your recitation instructor.
Checking grade records, changing recitations: online on Stellar Course Management System.
MATLAB questions will be posted at MITx.
It is best to use Safari, Firefox, or Chrome. After you login with your certificates, click on "find courses" in the upper left. Choose 18.06r and get started.
There is currently a brief introduction to MATLAB available on the website. This is not for credit, it is simply to introduce the notation for students that are not familiar with MATLAB.
