Math 300: Mathematical Computing

Assignment 3

This assignment involves trying to duplicate the page displayed in this image. The page is rendered in HTML5 with MathML and/or MathJax. It is required to typset the Λ = line in the middle using MathML. For the rest, you may LaTeX commands if you like. The page uses a CSS style sheet, or you can put your styles inside <style> tags if you prefer. Note that the headings in the gray bar turn yellow when you mouse over them. Pay careful attention to details of fonts, and spacing within equations. Other spacing issues are less important, and remember that the width of lines of text is strongly dependent on the browser - don't worry about that. The image is in the public domain, and is available at Wikipedia - you can click the image.

Be sure to link the image directly - do not download it to your site.

Note that the <mover> tag could be useful at one point, and we used <mroot> to make the cube root.

This assignment is worth 45 points, and is due at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, 11 September. Mail the completed HTML5 page and your style sheet, if you used one, to the instructor - do not leave them on your public directory.


Assignment 6 is posted.




The midterm exam will take place on Friday, 12 October. As always, you are permitted any paper notes you find useful, but no electronic devices are allowed. The test is cumulative, but emphasizes the material covered in the last fours weeks. A sample exam is available.




You need to install Matlab on your computer by Wednesday. You do not need Simulink or any particular toolboxes, though you might find the Symbolic toolbox useful at some time in the future (not in this class).
