Computational algorithms and their representation in C, and MATLAB. Introduction to linear algebra and numerical methods. Prerequisite: C or better in MATH 2425 (or HONR-SC 2425) (or concurrent enrollment). Student Learning Outcomes:This course is intended to help students develop basic programming skills and apply them in numerical analysis Required Textbooks and Other Course Materials:Seiichi Nomura, “C Programming and Numerical Analysis: An Introduction”, ISBN: 9781681733111, Morgan & Claypool, March 2018.Descriptions of major assignments and examinations:Homework problems are posted on the Web (CANVAS). Exams are closed book/note.Grading InformationAttendance/Grading:1.Class attendance is not required but strongly encouraged. 2.Homework will be posted on CANVAS and is due before the beginning of class via CANVAS (do not submit hard copy in class, it will not be accepted). Submission file should be in PDF format and include copy of code and example run result. 3.Late HW/LAB will be penalized 15% per day up to 3 days and will not be accepted thereafter.4.All exams will be closed book, closed notes. 5.This course requires that students pass designated assignment(s) in order to pass the course – referred to as “key assignments”. Some homework assignments will be designated as key 1
assignments.Students must submit and pass all key assignments in order to pass the course.If any key assignment is not submitted and passed, the student will not pass the course even if he/she scores perfectly on all exams and other assignments.Grading Policy:Exams account for 70% of the total grade as shown. Homeworks/ Labs account for the remaining 30% asshown below. Letter grade is assigned using the following metric: -Homework 10%A : 90% and above-Lab 20%B : 80% - 89%-2 Exams 40%C : 70% - 79%-Final Exam 30%D : 60% - 69%Total:100% F : Below 60%Make-up Exams:Makeup exams will be given only for reasons that are out of the student’s control.The students must contact the instructor sufficiently in advance of an exam or have concrete proof that they could not do so.
