Text: Elementary Numerical Analysis, by Kendall Atkinson & Weimin Han.

Who: This class is intended for students who are majored in mathematics/Computer Science.

Goal: We will cover selected topics from chapters 1-5.

Homework and Programming: You will be assigned homework almost every class day. I will collect your homework weekly. There will also be several computer programs using Matlab.

Exams: There will be three in class exams, Exam I on April 26th, Exam II on May 24th, and Exam III on June 10th at 10:00.

There is no make-up for missed exams. You may make-up one set of homework as long as I haven't started grading it.

Grading:
     Homework    25%
     Exams           75%

Grades will be assigned (roughly) according to the following scale ("+" and "-" will be determined later):
             A   90-100%
             B   80-89%
             C   70-79%
             D   60-69%
             F   30-59%
