 Final project abstract
which includes a list of references at the end of it
(references are not included in the word count) due by 12:00pm
as an electronic file I can read with University software posted to the
WebCT bulletin board. This file will be posted onto the main web page.

June 30  Wed 
 Complete and correct Test 2 revisions due for +15 (See WebCT
posting on this). If the revisions are not complete and correct, then
you will receive 0 extra points. I'm happy to check over them for
you in office hours before they are due.
 Test 3 study suggestions

June 22  Tues 
 Read over PS 6 solutions and the study guide for the test
 Read over WebCT posting about test 2 revisions, and begin working
on them.
 Final project proposal (a short description of what you plan to
do) and preliminary list of references due by 5pm. Your topic needs to be
preapproved by me as there is a limit to the number of people per topic.

June 28  Mon 
 PS 6 due at 5pm 
See Problem Set Guidelines and
Sample Problem Set WriteUps
7.1 #14 by hand and on Maple via the Evectors(A);
or Eigenvectors(A); command 
also compare your answers and resolve any apparent conflicts.
LAMP Module 6.1
Problem 4 Parts A and C: Rotation matrices in R^{2}
Note: To print out geometric pictures for part A, use
Headtail(M); on specific rotation matrices such as
M:=Rotatemat(0); This gives a static picture, instead of
Clock(M); which gives an animation that won't print out.
Note: Headtail only seems to work on Macs  not on PC's!
Also, in part C, look at the eigenvalues and solve for the possible theta
that will yield real numbers (recall that the square root of a negative
number does not exist as a real number and that
cos(theta) is less than or equal to 1 always.) Ignore the portion of
part c that refers back to part b.
7.2 7, 18, and 24
LAMP Module 6.3 Problem 4 Part A:
More foxes and rabbits (Predatorprey model).
Hint See p. 348 Section 3 and Example 3A up until
about 1/3 the way down on p. 349 "tend toward the zero vector in the limit."
and complete a similar analysis after following the directions by
changing the setup in section 4.
EXTRA CREDIT for Part B

June 25  Fri 
 Read my message on the bulletin board about test 1 revisions,
and complete them for any part of a problem you did not have a check on.
Extra points will only be granted if you have complete and correct
revisions.
