Iterative methods for solving linear systems
Blanca Guillén, Universidad Nacional Experimental del Táchira
Students will learn Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel and SOR methods for solving linear systems. Students are also asked to generate the iterative matrices, decide about the convergence and compare the results obtained with ...
The Human Matrix
Sarah Patterson, Virginia Military Institute
For this activity, we will look at accessing data in a matrix and manipulating it. Students will again be arranged into several rectangular arrays. Each student will have a whiteboard to write down their assigned ...
