6 Homework (best five), 1 Midterm, 1 Final Regular Students: 35%*H + 25%*M + 40%*F Project Students: 35%*H + 25%*M + 40%*F + Project 20% No difference on taking 3 or 4 units No formula for cutoff between A/B etc. The more fun we all have, the more A’s I will give out. Required Textbook: Linear & Nonlinear Programming 3 rd Edition – Luenberger/Ye (online?) We will use COURSEWORK.STANFORD.EDU Programming Computer Science The software use will help: Matlab, Excel Solver or public free software. It is most a “PAPER AND PENCIL” class! Friday’s problem sessions MS&E 211
