 Practice Problems 6.5 numbers 13, 15, 17, 25, 33
 Read through the following LAMP Problems:
Chapter 4 Module 1 Problem 1: Guess the transformation
Chapter 4 Module 1 Problem 9: Square roots, cube roots, ...
Chapter 6 Module 4 Problem 7: Projection matrices
Chapter 6 Module 4 Problem 8 Parts a and b: Shear matrices
 Work on Final Project and on Reviewing for the Final Exam

 Final Project Topic and Preliminary
List of References Due at 2:20pm
 Problem Set 6 Due at 2:20pm  NOT AT 5
Guidelines
7.1 (14 by hand and on Maple via the Evectors(A);
or Eigenvectors(A); command 
compare your answers and resolve any apparent conflicts)
LAMP Module 6.1 p. 322
Problem 4 Parts A and C: Rotation matrices in R^2 parts a and c.
Note: if you want to print out geometric pictures, use
Headtail(M); which gives a static picture, instead of
Clock(M); which gives an animation that won't print out.
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.)
7.2 6, 16 and 22
LAMP Module 6.3 p. 357 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.
