Mathematics 216: Introduction to Mathematical Computation
(with C)
The objective of this class is to learn to use the computer as a
tool for thinking about and solving mathematics problems, and to
do as much such thinking and solving as possible. We will use
the C programming language.
Note: Take a look at Assignment 10 for a helpful hint.
I'll not be in Monday and Tuesday this week but will check my
email occasionally to see if there are questions I can answer.
