The lab exercises are all Mathematica notebooks. Your TA will show you how to download these files to your home directory.
You should get started by looking at the basic instructions included on the first-lab-day handout.
- Starting with Lab 2, load math2374.nb before using the labs.
- Labs are submitted online (in the form of Mathematica notebooks) through the Moodle course site. Week 1 will include a practice submission.
- CSE students have the opportunity to download a copy of Mathematica for their personal computer. See this page for information.
- These general grading guidelines for lab exercises will help you understand what we expect for your lab assignments.
- Here is an example lab writeup.
- TAs are on duty on Mondays to provide assistance with labs.
- See this page for information on basic linux commands. (In particular, see "Working in Your Environment".)
- Pictures in Mathematica notebooks take a lot of space. If you save a notebook with many pictures, the file may be so large that you'll exceed your quota. Never log out of your computer if you have exceeded your quota! The trick to avoid these problems is to save your Mathematica notebook without the pictures. To do so, select "Delete All Output" from the "Cell" menu. This will remove all the Mathematica output in response to the command you typed, including the pictures. Now you can save your file, and it will take much less space.
