### N.B. regarding email:

- It is essential that your email message contain a proper salutation (with correct title/name) and an appropriate closing. Due to the student/faculty ratio, we do not guarantee that all email will receive a response, but we will make a strong effort to respond to appropriate email.

- Please do not email code requesting help from us; you can bring such to office hours. However, we generally will not debug your code for you.

- You must bring a blue book.
- You may bring a single 8.5x11 inch sheet of HANDWRITTEN notes (both sides).
- Bring a pen (preferably two). Your quiz should be done in pen - not pencil. If it is done in pencil, regrade requests will be denied.
- You must bring your ID.
- No calculator will be allowed on the first quiz!

- See the syllabus regarding due date and TIME!
- Also note the remark there about the fact that the homework you hand in must be clearly your own.
- You homework must be handed in as hardcopy, with the pages stapled together for full credit. (We are significantly understaffed.)

- Taylor polynomials.
- Asymptotic order and (very briefly) computer arithmentic.
- Horner's rule.
- Differencing for derivative approximation.
- ODEs and Euler's method.
- Linear interpolation.
- Numerical integration: Left-hand rectangle and trapezoid rules.
- Tridiagonal linear systems and a trivial PDE problem (two-point boundary value problem).
- Root finding and fixed points (solving equations).
- Bisection.
- Newton's method.
- Secant method.
- Fixed-point method.
- Solving equations in higher dimensions.
- Lagrange interpolation.
- Newton interpolation (divided differences).
- Interpolation error.
- Least squares (might be omitted as you should have seen this elsewhere).
- Numerical integration: Left-hand rectangle and trapezoid rules (reprise).
- Corrected trapezoid method.
- Simpson's method.
- Midpoint method.
- Romberg method (might be omitted).
- ODEs: Euler's method (reprise).
- Low-order Runge-Kutta methods.
- Fourth-order Runge-Kutta.
- Advanced issues in ODE methods.
- TBD.
