I will be teaching Numerical Analysis for the first time
this semester, and would appreciate any assistance anyone
could give me: anything from general suggestions and course
syllabi to specific course materials, such as projects and
exam questions.
The course is at mid-undergraduate level with the Calculus
sequence (including Linear Algebra), and programming ability
as prerequisites. The text is Burden & Faires. Topics listed
in the catalogue (probably somewhat ambitious for one semester)
are: numerical errors, solutions of nonlinear equations, interpo-
lation, approximation, numerical integration and differentiation,
and matrices and systems of linear equations.
Thank you very much.
