Calculator Use This course involves substantial numerical calculation. Whilst some should be performed manually, repetitive calculation warrants use of a graphing calculator or computer software (Mathematica, MATLAB, Maxima, et cetera). A TI-83 suffices; see http://www. math.umbc.edu/ ~ campbell/Calculators/TI8x/linalg.html for details. AMS 210
