Joel Friedman's Math 340 Page

This page concerns Math 340, Section 101, for Winter 2015-16 Term 1 (i.e., Fall 2015). The dates of exams, once announced, will not change; all other dates, homeworks, etc. are subject to change.

Recent News No recent news; no news is good news.
Basic Materials Here is a general overview of this course. We will first follow Matrix Games and Poker (a supplemental article), which may be updated periodically; after that we will follow the textbook "Linear Programming" by Vasek Chvatal. Occasionally we will refer to "Linear Programming" by Vanderbei, 4th edition; it is available to anyone with a CWL account. We will then revisit matrix games and poker. Other applications will be covered as time permits.
Exams Procedures For all exams you will be seated in alphabetical order by last name (as it appears on my class list). There may be more than one version of the midterm and/or the final. Midterms will be photocopied before they are returned to you.
Midterm There will be one midterm, which will be held during class hours on Wednesday, October 23; location to be announced.
Skeletal blog Here is a general skeletal blog for this course. This will show where we are in the text, and list some of the key points, terminology, etc. It is skeletal--just a bare outline--since we will follow the supplemental article(s) and textbook very closely.
Homework Homework to be listed here. At times, we will assign problems from previous exams, which can be found at our course's learning goals webpage.
Office Hours Office hours are by appointment, as long as this is feasible; if you would like to meet me, please email me when you are available over the next 3 days. When I get too busy, I will revert to fixed office hours; this always happens close to exams.
Sample Exam Problems Learning goals, including sample example problems, appear in our course's learning goals webpage, which will updated periodically.
