Math 152 Linear Systems

 Section 201


JAN 2  Check this website for announcements related to Math 152 Section 201.
JAN 4  See below for Wednesday's notes.
JAN 5 Piazza is now set up. This is a discussion forum for asking questions about homeworks, labs, exams and other course related material. There are no TAs or instructors who will monitor the forum regularly and answer questions. We hope students themselves can help other students, but please avoid giving away the whole solution to homework and lab problems.Piazza can be accessed from the Connect page. Here is a direct link to signup page and Math 152 page on Piazza.
