CS170A: Mathematical Models and Methods — Elements of Data MiningSpring 2010,Tuesday/Thursday 8:00–9:50, Boelter 2760Instructor: D. S. Parker,TA: Elaine Wah1Course GoalsThis course is aimed at developing an understanding of mathematical tools that are of central importance in computer science.It emphasizes matrix algebra and statistics, and use of exploratory environments likeMapleandMatlab. The models andmethods covered here are important elements of data mining.2Course GradingThere will be a midterm and final, and about 4 homework assignments that will require programming, primarily with MAT-LAB. Students will have the option of completing a project (chosen from a list of available projects provided by researchersat UCLA available the second week of class, or any other project approved by the instructor), or of taking the final exam.Lab & Homework assignments20%Quiz5%Midterm exam35%Project or Final exam40%3Course OutlineMar30IntroductionApr1Matlabprogramming and Matrix AlgebraApr6
