* = computer problem requiring MATLAB

Grade = 0.5*HW + 0.25*TestI + 0.25*TestII, where

• HW = homework average
• TestI = test grade over Chapters 1-4, Oct 12
• TestII = test grade over Chapters 5+, Dec 9
• Homeworks
• Turn in printout (only) of MATLAB program and output. Tutorials on using MATLAB are here and here . Information on running MATLAB at my.apps.utep.edu is here. You can also get a free copy of MATLAB for your own computer here!
• homeworks are individual, not group, projects; and don't use the book MATLAB programs. Please don't turn in copies of other students' homework, or use rogue websites like Chegg or Slader
• homework will be collected every due date, and selected problems will be graded
• homeworks can be PDF, JPG or Word files (as few files as possible!).
• late homework not accepted.
• Tests
• On-line tests on Blackboard
 90-100% guaranteed A 80-89% guaranteed B or better 70-79% guaranteed C or better 60-69% guaranteed D or better below 60% no guarantees
