Summary of Previous Lecture Mathematical models formalize behaviours of systems such that one can predict and understand them. Linear models are a form of mathematical model which consists of a linear system. Such models find ready application to empirical, quantitative pursuits, where they can illuminate the complex interactions that occur. AMS 210

Linear Algebra on Calculators Any popular graphing calculator can do the linear algebra present in this course. Two distinct feature-clusters of calculators exist: the numerically-oriented TI-83, TI-84, and TI-86; and the symbolically capable TI-89 and all HP graphing calculators. Latter group has no systematic deficiencies pertaining to course content. Former group does. AMS 210

Linear Algebra on Numerically-Oriented Calculators Numerically oriented calculators can perform all relevant computations, but are limited in their ability to manipulate symbolic expressions, including matrices. Problematic for chapter 1, but since chapter 2 and forward primarily use matrices which tend to factor out model inputs from the model, representing the models purely numerically will prove less of an issue. See http://www.math.umbc.edu/ ~ campbell/ Calculators/TI8x/linalg.html for more detail on how do linear algebra on the TI-83/84/86 series of calculators. AMS 210

Linear Algebra on Computers Similar dichotomy as with calculators exists between numerically-oriented and symbolically-oriented software, but full-scale computer software of either sort tends to be stronger both numerically and symbolically than calculator software. Symbolically-oriented computer algebra software includes
