Apr 27  Tues 
 Review LAMP Ch 4 Module 1 by skimming p. 198219 of your LAMP book
(or redoing the demo on a computer).
 Work on your final project.

Apr 22  Thur 

Apr 19  Mon 
 Complete and Correct Test 2 revisions due by 7pm (See WebCT posting
for select answers).
 Problem Set 6
Due by 7pm
Guidelines
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); 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 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.
