18.06 Linear Algebra, Spring 2016



Problem Sets and Exams

Problem sets are due Thursdays at 4pm in Room E17-131. Your problem sets should have your recitation instructor listed at the top. If you have any questions concerning the problem sets, their solutions or exams, please consult your recitation instructors.

Problem sets consist of two parts.
Part 1 is a hand in part.
Part 2 is a choice of 1) an MITx part which includes traditional computer graded problems and MATLAB problems or 2) Julia based problems run on juliabox . The two alternatives are nearly identical except for language and platform. For instructions on using MITx see the FAQ. You can try both Julia and MITx. We will take the larger of the two scores.
Problem Set 1 (due Sep 17, 4pm). For the Julia based option please visit the 18.06 github page .
For the MITx alternative go to MITx. .

Grading clarification

Problem Sets account for 15% of your final grade. Both parts (hand-in and online) are equally weighted: 7.5% each.

Hand-in grades are recorded in the gradebook as integer numbers. Each hand-in problem set has a total of points somewhere around 30 or 40 (depending on how many hand-in problems there are in a week).

Online Problem Sets grades are recorded in the gradebook as a number between 0 and 1 (if you like, multiply by 100 to get a percentage). Grades are exported from MITx to the gradebook

The Gradebook turns each of those grades into percentages for each assignment. Within the Hand-in category of psets, all 9 Problem Sets are equally weighted. The lowest Hand-in score (in percentage) will be dropped at the end. ======= >>>>>>> External Changes
