Projects – MA 2071 C 98
Philosophy: the projects allow teams to customize the course to their individual interests and needs, to see realistic applications of the material, and to study areas in more depth than class time would allow. They have been developed over a period of 5 years and seek to make a standard linear algebra course into an experience consistent with the WPI approach to education.
