Room: MCS 206
Class policies can be found using the link to the left. Homework assignments and lecture schedules will evolve as the semester progresses. (I am using a different text than I have in the past and I am not certain how everything is going to flow.) As information becomes available, it will also be found using the links on the left.
Tuesdays and Thursdays: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Homework assignments last updated: 5/18/12
OTHER HELP In the basement of this building, in MCS 8, there are computers with software that can help you study for this class. You can get more information in the lab downstairs. The lab hours will be posted on the door to the lab.
Some students enjoy studying in the MESA Study Center (MCS 100F).
The Khan Academy has some math/science/finance videos posted on YouTube. I have not watched many of them and can not vouch for their content, but they seem reasonable. You can access the differential equations list of videos or the linear algebra (mostly simple matrix things) list by clicking on the relevant link.
COURSE OUTLINE OF RECORD Here is a link to the Course Outline for Math 270. This outline gives the details of what material is incuded in ALL Math 270 classes at El Camino College. It also lists the course objectives, gives a suggested timeline, and indicates how students are to be evaluated. The course outline is currently in the process of being revised, not that that will affect you.

Here is a link to the MIT linear algebra lectures of Dr. Strang. That course is significantly different from our course, but some of the lectures will be relevant.
