**Office locations and
hours: **Math 3316, see http://www2.math.umd.edu/~tjp/
for office hours; other times by appointment

The following will be due **at the beginning**
of class on the dates indicated. You should turn in your homework by hand. If
you cannot make it to class that day you may attach it to an email sent to TJP@math.umd.edu, with the following two
conditions:

1) Email submissions must be dated and time-stamped before class time on the due date.

2) One email
submission is allowed per semester. (In *very
extraordinary* circumstances, at *my*
discretion, I may allow two.)

For an introduction to Matlab, you can read the first two
chapters of the recommended textbook *A
guide to Matlab for beginners and experienced users*.

I highly recommend that you also consult the brief
introduction to* *Matlab prepared by
Justin Wyss-Gallifent:

Whenever you use a new Matlab command, you can learn about
it by using the “help” command; e.g., type “help cross” to learn about the “cross” command.

All tests are in Acrobat (.pdf) format, and many print well. For ones that don’t, you can choose the “Select Image” tool, highlight each page as a block, copy it, paste it as a picture into a blank word-processing page, and print from there.
