Final Exam

--- Problems with ‘*’ next to them are to be handed in on updated due dates.

Notes: 1. Without permission homework past due date will not be accepted.

2. Homework without the problem statements will not be accepted.

3. Exchange of ideas is encouraged. But with regard to collected homework such exchanges must not be shared in writing. This rule does not apply to group projects within the group but does apply between groups. The consequence for violating this rule is for me to divide evenly one score among all sufficiently similar works.

There will be at least one group project.  It may require the use of the Matlab, a computer algebraic system which is made available free of charge to all UNL students. To install Matlab, go to http://procurement.unl.edu/matlab-licenses
