News and Announcements

4/25/17 In class you will be working on a worksheet of review questions from chapters 5 and 6.  Also, information about the final exam has been posted here. 
In the next two or three class meetings, we will be looking at material from two handouts.  They can be downloaded from the Worksheets and Handouts page, and are also linked from the 3rd Assignment Sheet, both of which have recently been updated.  Also, as announced in class, there will not be a handout on applications of eigenvalues, so you may disregard the reference to that on the page of assignment due dates.   However, all students should be able to complete the problems 101-103 for section 5.1 that appear on the 2nd Assignment Sheet.  Problems of this sort may appear on the final exam in connection with applicatons of eigenvalues.
I  have modified the semester plan and the  page of assignment due dates.
