18.06 Linear Algebra, Spring 2015



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 either (your choice!) an MITx part (which includes traditional computer graded problems and MATLAB problems) or Julia based problems most conveniently run on juliabox . The two alternatives are nearly identical except for language and platform. Please do not submit both.
Hand-in Problem Set 1 (due Feb 12, 4pm). For the MITx option go to MITx. For the Julia based option, please visit the Julia problem set . Note the Julia based option requires emailing the notebook with solutions to mitjulia1806@gmail.com Solutions
Hand-in Problem Set 2 (due Feb 19, 4pm). For the MITx option go to MITx. For the Julia based option, please visit the Julia problem set . The Julia pset is now autograded! No emailing of solutions. Solutions
Hand-in Problem Set 3 (due Feb 26, 4pm). For the MITx option go to MITx. For the Julia based option, please visit the Julia problem set . The Julia pset now gives instant feedback! Solutions

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 (and entered manually for Julia users)

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.
