Weekly Assignments

Week 1 (8/22-8/26):

  1. No homework.
  2. Pre-lab questions for Lab M1 at the end of lab manual for Lab M1.
  3. Reading: A Mathcad Primer, Lab manual for Lab M1, and Taylor's chapter 1 and 2.1-2.4.

Note that the handout for Mathcad and lab manuals can be obtained from your lab session and lab manuals can also be downloaded from here).

Week 2+3 (8/29-9/9):

    1. Homework #1 posted; due 9/12 (due to Labor day).

    3. Reading: Taylor chapter 2.5 - 2.6, 3.2, 3.5 - 3.6, 3.11 and the following summary pages (p.77 - 79). Sorry, the book is very verbose and Taylor starts from special cases to the general equation. However, if you read diagonally and understand the boxed equations and related examples you are in business. The punch lines and most important equations are eq. 3.16 - 3.19 in 3.6 and eq. 3.47 - 3.48 in 3.11.
