Learning Outcomes: Students completing Math 351 will be able to:
Reading Assignments: Look at the Calendar for sections that will be covered in class for each lecture. Reading material will be assigned in class. NOTE: While it may not be stated explicitly each day, students are expected to read each section to be covered before class. Questions not addressed during class time should be asked in office hours. Students are responsible for any material missed due to absence. Also note that, since this is a three credit course, students are expected to work atleast 2-3 hours individually for every class meeting. Thus, each student should be spending atleast 6-9 hours each week on this course.
Attendance: All students are expected to attend class. Success in this course will depend on your attendance and participation in class activities. Homework assignments are due in class and have to be turned in by each individual student themselves. If you do not attend class when an assignment is due and turn in your homework yourself (exceptions will be made for those students who contact Dr. Bokil and provide documentation for an excused absence), that homework will not count towards your grade.
MATLAB The programming language for this course is MATLAB. If you have not used this language before you will have time to understand the basics of MATLAB during the first few weeks of classes. A number of different introductory tutorials are available on my website. The textbook presents an introduction to MATLAB in Appendix D; and the programs in the text serve as further examples. Students are encouraged to modify these programs and to use them as models for writing their own MATLAB programs. Look at MATLAB resources for more help.
Course Grade Scale: The Grade for the course is determined by the grade on worksheets, the written and computational homework assignments, the midterm and final. Each letter grade below corresponds to grades scored between the lower limit (including) and less than the upper limit (excluding).
