Math 300: Mathematical Computing

Assignment 1

This assignment requires you to make a web page at your class web site. The file containing the web page must be named index.html (note that the first letter is a lower case i), and must contain the following elements.

The assignment must look good over the Internet in Mozilla Firefox. It must be named index.html (with a lower case i... had I mentioned that?) in your web directory.

This assignment is worth 40 points, and must be posted by 9:00 AM on Tuesday, 28 August. It is turned in when it appears on your public directory under the name (wait for it!) index.html.

Hint: Take care to look at your assignment after you post it, using the web address:

Note that the link is created using the <a> tag, and the image is made using the <src> tag. See the cheat sheet.

Note that the reason we call this index.html is that the page then becomes the default for your web site. You will not see other pages on the site unless you link them usin the <a> tag.

Assignment 6 is posted.

The midterm exam will take place on Friday, 12 October. As always, you are permitted any paper notes you find useful, but no electronic devices are allowed. The test is cumulative, but emphasizes the material covered in the last fours weeks. A sample exam is available.

You need to install Matlab on your computer by Wednesday. You do not need Simulink or any particular toolboxes, though you might find the Symbolic toolbox useful at some time in the future (not in this class).
