  • HW over the weekend (A, C, D)

    Posted by Allen Olsen on 6/1/2018

    Please get current with all assignments about parametric equations, because we will have an assessment next week on them.  This includes the worksheets, but also the two sets of book problems that I have assigned.  When I know what day the assessment will be, I will put it on this web site.

  • HW for 5/21

    Posted by Allen Olsen on 5/21/2018

    Objective: Finish up Gaussian Elimination and Systems of Equations over the next few days, for a quiz on Friday 5/25 (C, D) or Tuesday 5/29 (A).

    HW: To prepare for the Quiz, you must have completed

    1. The 2 by 2 Gaussian Elimination (by hand) handout.

    2. The 3 by 3 Gaussian Elimination using Matrices (by hand) handout.

    You were supposed to complete both of these handouts on the weekend.

    3. The new Solving Systems by Calculator handout, from today.  This shows you how to do Gaussian elimination on a matrix using the rref() function on your calculator.  rref() stands for "Reduced Row Echelon Form."

    4. The Linear Systems Applications handout, which you should start on once you get done with the previous handouts, and which I will hand out in your next class.


    Let me know if you have any trouble downloading these.

  • HW for 5/18 (A, C, D)

    Posted by Allen Olsen on 5/18/2018

    Objective: Solve 2 by 2 and 3 by 3 systems of equations using the method of Gaussian Elimination.


    First, this handout, which is a short summary of the 2 by 2 case and then, on the last page, has some problems for you to do.

    This handout -- the first three pages are summaries of what we have done with 3 by 3 elimination, and the last page (page 4) has a problem to do and the rest of the HW assignment.

    Posted by Allen Olsen on 5/15/2018

    Objective: Multiply matrices!

    We worked through examples in class of how to do the matrix problems I assigned.  Some of you had difficulties downloading the homework.  Try this link, instead. 

    Tonight, please get all the way through these problems.
