18.06 Linear Algebra,
Jenn's office hour for Wednesday, May 8 is cancelled.
Our final exam will be on May 22, 9am-noon, in Johnson ice rink.
Class Philosophy on Computing and MATLAB
In this course, we emphasize interactive exploration to supplement theory. Therefore, even though no experience with programming or computational software is required, some homework problems will require you to use a numerical linear algebra tool. Matlab will suffice for all such assignments, and so we use it as the "demonstration language" of 18.06 (though you may use any tool/language you want). We may occasionally demonstrate MATLAB and Mathematica, and we have incentives for those willing
to try Julia.
